Apple Turnovers


After making the honeycrisp apple breakfast pastry last week, I had one remaining sheet of puff pastry left over and no plans for it. I really had to convince myself to not make the breakfast pastry again.

I mean, I'm definitely going to make it again, but I wanted to make something different with this sheet of puff pastry. I decided to go for apple turnovers, mainly because I couldn't believe that I'd never made them before. Such an easy and tasty recipe and here I am just getting around to making it.

    • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
    • 2 large apples, peeled and chopped
    • 1 teaspoon all purpose flour
    • 2 tablespoon sugar
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 
    • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
1. Preheat the oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside half of the mixture.
3. In a bowl, combine apples, flour and half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Toss well to coat.
4. Roll out the puff pastry into a 12-inch square, then cut into 4 squares.
5. Divide the apple mixture between the four squares, placing it in the center. Fold over one edge, to make a triangle. Crimp the edges with a fork. Repeat with remaining squares and place all on the prepared baking sheet.
6. Brush each pastry with the melted butter and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar on top.
7. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Seriously? Someone should smack me for never making these before. This really took absolutely no time at all. While the oven was preheating, I peeled and chopped the apples and got them completely prepared within a minute of the oven reaching the 400 degrees. By the time I cleaned up the counter, returned the items to the pantry and poured myself a glass of iced tea, they were ready to come out of the oven. The part that takes the most amount of time is waiting for the puff pastry to thaw!

Cinnamon-sugar and apples just go so nicely together. The smell that comes out of your oven permeates through your entire house making it smell like hugs and happiness on a cool fall day.
