Apple Turnovers

Jump to Recipe

It’s my favorite time of the year again! Fall! The leaves are changing here on our land and all throughout Kansas City and it is just beautiful! The weather is cooling and we recently visited an Apple Orchard and got a bushel of all types of apples! Of course this means it is time to bake! I like to use Granny smith apples for a lot of my baking. This recipe is simple as it uses pre made puff pastry, I like to get mine from Trader Joes! Let’s get baking!

For this recipe you will need a package of frozen puff pastry sheets, 4 Medium Granny Smith apples finely diced (or whatever apple on hand), 1 1/2 Tablespoons Unbleached All-Purpose Flour, Juice of one lemon, 1 1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar, Teaspoon of Cinnamon, 3 Tablespoons Butter, 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract and 1 Egg.

For the Glaze you will need 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar, 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract, and 1-2 Tablespoons of Milk or Water.

You want to start by preheating your oven to 375 Degrees F. Next you want heat a skillet on medium heat and melt your butter. Once butter is melted add in your finely diced apples and cook until apples are soft. About 3-5 minutes.

Next you want to add in your Flour, Cinnamon, Coconut Sugar, and Juice of one Lemon and cook until the mixture thickens. About 5 minutes. Once done transfer your mixture to a bowl and stir in the vanilla extract. Set aside to cool.

Meanwhile cut your thawed frozen puff pastry sheets into squares. Beat one egg and brush the egg wash on every side of the squares (this will help the puff pastry stay closed when clamped with a fork). Once your apple mixture is cooled add 2 Tablespoons of the mixture to each square. Fold each square diagonally and crimp the edges down with a fork. Make three slits at the top of each turnover with a knife (as seen in picture above).

Bake for 25 minutes until golden. Once finished take out and set aside to cool.

To make the glaze mix together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract adding more powdered sugar or milk as needed for the right texture. I like my glaze on the thicker side so that it stays on top of the turnover when drizzled vice sliding off.

Drizzle each cooled turnover with the glaze and enjoy!
