Quick Apple Turnovers are a delicious surprise that is hard to beat. They are very easy snacks for family and friends and always make the day better. I love to use Granny Smith apples for this but Braeburn or similar works just a s well. I like to roll the pastry over like a sausage roll so the apple to pastry ratio is better. Also you can make them in advance and store in a sealed container in the larder.

  • Preheat the oven to 400F, 200C, Gas 6)
  • In a large bowl add the lemon juice and water and gently stir to combine.
  • Add the sliced apples into the lemon/water mixture to keep them from browning while you prepare the rest of the recipe.
  • Add a heavy saucepan over a medium high heat. Add the butter and allow to melt but not discolour.
  • Drain lemon and water from apples, and place them carefully into the hot pan.
  • Cook and stir for about 2 minutes until they start to take on some colour.
  • Add brown sugar and cinnamon, and cook for 2 more minutes. Stir continuously and you dont want anything to stick.
  • In a small bowl, add the corn starch and 1 tablespoon of warm water. Stir thoroughly to create a thickening agent. Add the corn starch mix to the pan and thoroughly mix.
  • Cook for about another minute, or until sauce has thickened.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  • Unroll the puff pastry sheets. They should be perfect squares, if not give them a quick trim. (Each piece will create 4 turnovers.)
  • On a flat work space, cut each pastry square into 4 smaller squares.
  • Carefully spoon the cooler apple mixture into the edge of each square.
  • I like to roll, very gently, th pastry over to create a “sausage roll” kind of look.
  • Gently make a few thin slices in the top of the turnovers to help them grow when cooking.
  • Place turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between them.
  • Place the baking tray on the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  • They should have puffed up and be a light brown as in the photo.
  • Place on a cooling tray and allow to cool fully.
  • In a bowl add the sugar, milk and vanilla extract and mix well. I use a pastry brush tp coat the turnovers and add an additional sprinkle of sugar for that extra kick (optional)
  • Enjoy.
