Directions

Crust

Prepare the crust by placing the flour and salt in a food processor. Cut up the cold butter into small cubes, and pulse in the food processor until the butter is incorporated into the flour. Add 2 egg whites and the honey and pulse until a dough forms. It should be slightly sticky but easily pull away from the sides of the processor. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and press down until you have a circular disk. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 days.

Filling

To make the filling, melt the butter, and add the apples, cream, honey and salt in a medium-sized skillet. Sauté until the apples are soft, about 5 minutes. Allow to cool, and then puree in a food processor.

To assemble, preheat the oven to 350°F. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll out on a floured surface until you have a rectangle that is ¼ inch thick. Trim the edges, and cut into 8 equal rectangles. Place 4 pieces of dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet 1 inch apart. Scoop a fourth of the filling in the center, leaving an ⅛-inch border. Place another piece of dough on top, and use a fork to crimp the edges and seal the 2 pieces of dough together. Pierce the center with the fork, and brush the top with egg whites. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling, and then bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Allow to cool before drizzling with honey and cinnamon to taste.
