APPLE TURNOVERS

Ingredients 

  • ▢ 2 cups small diced (peeled) apples
  • ▢ 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • ▢ 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ▢ 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • ▢ 1 (17.3-oz.) package frozen puff pastry (2 sheets), thawed
  • ▢ Flour, for dusting work surface
  • ▢ 1 large egg, whisked
  • ▢ Crystal sanding sugar (optional)

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpats.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice.
  • Unfold the puff pastry sheets onto a lightly floured work surface. Using a rolling pin, gently roll over the pastry to seal any perforations then cut each sheet into 4 squares.
  • Using a slotted spoon, scoop a portion of the apple mixture into the center of each puff pastry square then fold the pastry across diagonally to form triangles. Using a fork, crimp together the edges then transfer the turnovers to the prepared baking sheets, spacing them at least 2 inches apart.
  • Cut three small slits in the tops of each turnover then brush them with the egg. Sprinkle the turnovers with the sanding sugar (optional).
  • Bake the turnovers for 17 to 20 minutes or until they’re golden brown and puffed. Transfers the turnovers to a rack to cool then serve warm or at room temperature.
