As apple season is just around the corner, I have found an amazing recipe to turn those spare apples into a yummy treat. These apple turnovers are quick and easy and take no time at all. Try it out!
4 medium apples, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
Egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1 teaspoon water)
Lets get baking
Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
In 2-quart saucepan, heat apples, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch to boiling over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; simmer about 5 minutes or until thickened and apples are tender. Set aside to cool slightly.
Sprinkle work surface lightly with flour. Roll out thawed puff pastry into 15-inch square. Cut into 4 smaller squares.
Brush each square with egg wash; spoon apple mixture onto center of each. Fold each in half diagonally to form a triangle; press edges together to seal. Use back of fork to crimp edges. Transfer to cookie sheet; brush with egg wash. Use sharp knife to cut a few vents into each turnover.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden.
Once cooked, leave to cool on a cooling rack and enjoy!
Thaw puff pastry in the fridge overnight or at room temperature 30 minutes.
To prevent filling from leaking, make sure to seal edges completely, and cut vents into each turnover before baking.
