I love all the ingredients here, the cinnamon and apples encased in flaky buttery puff pastry. A pre made shop bought roll of puff pastry (you can make your own if you like) means this is an easy recipe (my favourite kind!).
Your kitchen will smell lovely with the stewing apples and baking turnovers and perfect anytime of the day. I hope you enjoy making these delicious apple turnovers.
Recipe – Apple Turnovers (Makes 6)
- 1 Sheet Puff Pastry (320g)
- 4 Apples (add more/less depending on size of your apples) – peeled, cored, cut into cubes
- 40g Butter
- 30g Light Brown Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Cinamon
- Pinch of Salt
- 2 Tbsp Egg or Milk Wash
Preheat oven to about 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. In a large saucepan, add the butter over medium heat. When the butter is bubbling, add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 6-7 minutes.
While the apples are cooking, roll out the puff pastry sheet and cut into 6 square pieces.
Back to the apples, add the cinnamon, sugar & a pinch of salt to the saucepan with the applesand let it simmer over a low heat for another 2 or 3 minutes.
Place a spoonful of the gooey cinnamony apple filling onto the middle of each of the pastry squares, dividing evenly. Fold over the puff pastry to create a triangle and press the edges together, seal using a fork. Brush with egg or milk and sprinkle a little sugar over the top. Prick with a fork a couple of times also.
Bake in the hot oven until the turnovers are golden – about 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack. These are delicious fresh out of the oven or for breakfast on a chilly morning warmed up in the oven, as a dessert with cream or vanilla ice-cream… endless possibilities…
