My favourite part about fall is using apples in a multitude of ways whether it be apple sauce, apple pies, apple butter — the list goes on and on. I decided to develop this apple turnover recipe so that I will be able whip up these desserts quickly and easily for the (Canadian) Thanksgiving party I am hosting this weekend.
If you plan on making these turnovers for a special occasion, you can even make them a couple of days in advance and freeze them. All you would have to do is bake them for a longer period of time when you wish to consume these flaky apple pastries.
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 35 minutes
- Total Time: 45 minutes
- Servings: 4 turnovers
Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
Cut the apples into thin slices and cut each slice into quarters.
Place the apples, cinnamon, butter, and sugar in a pot and simmer until the apples are soft and caramelized, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut the puff pastry into squares and place on parchment paper.
Beat the egg in a bowl and dab the edge of the puff pastry with the egg wash.
Fill the middle of the puff pastry and fold over. Use a fork to seal the pastry and coat with egg wash. Make an incision in the pastry.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
