- Place the dough on a surface sprinkled with flour and knead it. Make eight equal balls and roll each into a cake. Place the crumbs on one half of the cake and wrap it. Then, put some more crumbs on top and apple filling on the sides. Twist the dough from the two sides inward and fix at the base.
- Lay the cakes in a circle on a baking sheet lined with parchment, cover with cling film, and let sit for half an hour.
