FFwD ~ Compote de Pommes ~ Two Ways

Apple sauce - two ways
but mine is only one ~ chunky applesauce!
opted not to turn it into apple butter

cos I am baking apple turnovers
with a pack of store bought puff pastry
really ugly handwork!
but it was good
also need to use my pack of store bought
sweet shortcrust pastry which (below) looks good
(L) was 2nd attempt which looks way better the (R)
but nvm how good they look
OMG they shrunk!
after pressing down the pastry with back of fork and up the sides (twice)
during the blind baking time (25mins) they sorta look presentable
using my 6" removable base pie pans
Top: applesauce topped with pastry cutouts
Bottom: stewed apple slices (in molasses brown sugar 
and splash of water) on top of a bed of applesauce
topped off with pastry cutouts.
with the balance of the applesauce
I baked > THIS <
 using this individual brownie bowl pan
