This weekend, I felt like making a fall dessert for Matt and Kelly's visit, so I found a super easy Apple Turnover recipe and created it. (I can't find the actual recipe now, but it was simple enough that I remember the details).
- 1 box puff pastry sheets
- 4 apples
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 3/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1.5 tsp cinnamon
- granulated sugar for the top if desired
- 1 egg (for egg wash)
Peel the apple (I used a potato peeler) and slice it in to small strips. Put it in a medium bowl and add the sugar, flower, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Mix it up so that the apples are covered by that mixture.
Take the puff pastry sheets and cut them in to squares. You can make the dessert as large or small as you’d like – I tried a variety of sizes, but out of each of the two sheets, next time I’ll make 6 or 8 little turnovers. Add the apple mixture in the middle of a square, and fold the puff pastry over the apple mix to form a triangle. Use your fingers to seal the edges of the pastry. Optional: spread a small amount of the egg over the top of the pastry and sprinkle granulated sugar on the top.
Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and fluffy.
I made these ahead of time and served them at room temperature and they were delicious – but eating them warm would be even better!
