Apple Turnovers

  • Author: Strudel


  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 3 apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
  • 1 egg yolk
  • sugar, for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 425.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the apples, and cook and stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg, and cook, continuing to stir frequently, for 3-5 minutes, or until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat to cool slightly (you can pop the apple mixture into the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to speed up this process).
  4. Unfold puff pastry sheets, and cut into 4 squares. Then, roll out each into 6-inch squares.
  5. Spoon apples onto the center of each squares. Fold over from corner to corner into a triangle shape, and using the tines of a fork, crimp edges together to seal.
  6. Place turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between them. Brush with egg yolk and sprinkle with sugar.
  7. Bake for 20-25, until turnovers are puffed and lightly browned. Let cool slightly, and enjoy!
