Honey Apple Turnovers are easier than apple pie! You can make fun decorations with the extra scraps of dough. Your children will love to help make these. Ideal to keep kids occupied on rainy holidays. The pastry is lovely and crispy whilst the filling is sweet yet nutty. The fruit and walnuts blend into a divine filling that make this recipe such a success. Also these are superb both hot and cold. When I serve Honey Apple Turnovers as a dessert, I normally serve with thick homemade custard. It makes a perfect dessert. As a snack, I normally just serve them warm. So easy and fun making.
Honey Apple Turnovers
- In a small bowl, combine currants, walnuts and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Stir in 3 Tbsp. honey.
- Peel apples and cut each in half lengthwise.
- Trim away stem and blossom ends. Scoop out core from each half with a melon baller, making a wide hole for filling.
- Divide honey mixture evenly between apple centers.
- Divide pie dough into 4 balls. Roll each ball into a 6-inch circle about 1/4-inch thick.
- Lay 1 piece of dough over each apple half with filling-side up. Tuck and wrap dough around each apple half. Trim dough to fit. Pinch the edges of dough underneath apples to seal entirely.
- Combine 1 Tbsp. honey with 1 tsp. steaming hot water. Stir until honey dissolves. Brush mixture over tops of turnovers; dust with additional cinnamon.
- Transfer turnovers to an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375°F for about 35 minutes, until turnovers art golden.
- Remove from oven and drizzle with remaining 2 tbsp. honey.
- Serve warm or at room temperature.
