Apple Turnover
Puff pastry can be used to make many delicious desserts like this apple turnover!

I'll tell you what you can do:

One of my favorite desserts that can be made with puff pastry is the Apple Turnover. Honestly, though, you can stick anything inside puff pastry dough and it will taste delicious!

To make these delicious triangles, take out your puff pastry and allow it to thaw a little. It doesn't need to reach room temperature, but you should be able to work with it. In a frying pan sauté the chopped apples in butter. Allow to cook for 30 seconds and then add in the sugar. The amount depends on how sweet a sweet-tooth you have, but several tablespoons are usually necessary. Next add in the cinnamon and allow to cook for several minutes. The apples should lose some of their water but still be a bit crispy. If you turn it into mush, it will still be tasty but the texture is lost.

Roll out the puff pastry dough, into approximately 20 squares. Place a heaping spoonful of the apple mixture in the center and folded the square over into a triangle to seal it. Then, brush the top with egg wash (egg mixed with a bit of water or milk). Place the turnovers on a baking sheet with parchment paper in a 350ºF oven for about 30 minutes, or until they are a golden brown color.



Pears, sour cherries, or any other fruit in season makes a great turnover!

Puff pastry dough will only taste sooo good if you make it at home. However, you can buy it ready-made in the supermarket. If you go this route, try to find one made with butter and not shortening.




Best of luck,
