Why cocoon, you ask? Cuz it's shaped like a cocoon of a butterfly. You may use any kind of pastry or bread dough of your choice. Just fill it with a sweet apple pie filling (I used a combination of apple and pear) and get creative!
1 green cooking apple (peeled , cored, diced or sliced)
1 golden pear (peeled , cored, diced or sliced)
150g white or brown sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
pinch of salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
cornstarch solution (mix 2 tbsp of cornflour and 2 tbsp of water)
Cook all of the above except for cornstarc solution. When boiling, add solution. When thick, remove from fire and cool completely.
After filling your cocoon, proof for abt 1/2 hour, brush with egg wash and bake in a preheated 190 degrees oven for 12 - 15 mins.
