So, i recently discovered a new type of apple which i’ve fallen in love with. Honeycrisp. They’re delicious by itself, but i’ve been dying to make some apple turnovers for my mom. Monday night, while trying to watch Gossip Girl and bake at the same time which is very hard to do when the kitchen doesn’t face the TV. It was very messy trying to roll out the pastry sheets bigger and i should of probably cut the apple into small bite size pieces. Overall, DELICIOUS!! I used the recipe posted by The Pioneer Woman, but also added a few of my own.
Simple Apple Turnovers
Original recipe based from The Pioneer Woman
2 sheets puff pastry, cut into 8 large squares or 12 medium squares
3 apples, cored and cut into bite size pieces
1 cup brown sugar
2 swirls of honey
1 TBsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 TBsp water
Preheat oven to 415 degrees.
Place puffed pastry rectangles onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
Add brown sugar, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt to apples. Stir to combine. Allow to sit for a few minutes.
Spoon apple mix into the middle of one square. Brush egg wash around the edges and add another square on top. Seal the edges together using the back of a fork.
OR You can just fold them into triangles and seal the edges.
Brush the top with egg wash and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until pastry is puffed and golden brown.
