Apple Turnovers

Apple Turnovers … OR Homemade Hostess Apple Pie Take-a-longs!

I found the recipe here, ignored the directions and made my own! You should follow the instructions…. I had way too much apple filling and small turnovers. 
But small is good if you’re on a diet 🙂

Here is what you’ll need:
Frozen Puff Pastry package
2 -3 apples (different ones add more flavor)
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp flour
1/4 squeezed lemon (1 tsp lemon juice)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg (optional)
1 beaten egg
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

Preheat oven to  350  degrees F.
Remove Puff Pastry from freezer and wrapper and allow to defrost.
Wash and chop up apples.
Mix together in a bowl, apples, brown sugar, flour, lemon, cinnamon and nutmeg. 

Once Puff Pastry is thawed, cut into 9 equal squares. They will be roughly 3 x 3 inch squares.

I used my Wilton Pastry Wheel. I use it for cutting dough, fondant, and soft candy.  Love it!

I made turnovers, but the “Instructions” are different. Place pastry square on a parchment lined cookie sheet. I pulled my square a bit long and folded it over some of the apple filling. Cut a crescent or L shape in the top of the dough to act as a vent. Press edges to seal. 
Brush beaten egg on top of turnovers and cook in oven for 20 minutes until golden brown. 

Golden, Yummy Goodness! Serve hot for breakfast or dessert (or lunch).  If you want the “full” turnover experience, make a glaze with 1 1/2 cup confectioners sugar and 3 to 4 Tsp. milk. 
Drizzle over top.

So stinkin’ Good!!!

Go make some memories!

Thanks for visiting us at The Fiskerelli Bellies. I'm bookmarking this recipe to make for my husband when he gets back from his business trip. I wonder if they would freeze well... hhmmmm... Oh, and I'm SO getting a pastry wheel!

These look SO yummy! I have 3 large bags of apples I need to do SOMETHING with and I'm in the mood to bake, so guess what we'll be having tonight? (but not 3 large bags worth! lol) (I've made turnovers using lemon curd in the middle then drizzling a lemon glaze over the top. Those are quite tasty, too, if I may add!)
