Delicious Apple Turnover Recipe

To help celebrate #NationalAppleTurnoverDay, on July 5th, here is a simple Apple Turnover Recipe to try at home!

Prep: 30 mins

Cook: 25 mins

Total: 55 mins

Servings: 8

Yield: 8 turnovers


2 tablespoons lemon juice

4 cups water

4 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon water

1 (17.25 ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed

1 cup confectioners' sugar

1 tablespoon milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Step 1

Combine the lemon and 4 cups water in a large bowl. Place the sliced apples in the water to keep them from browning.

Step 2

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Drain water from apples and place them into the hot skillet. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes. Add brown sugar, and cinnamon, and cook, stirring, for 2 more minutes. Stir together cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Pour into the skillet and mix well. Cook for another minute, or until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat to cool slightly.

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Step 4

Unfold puff pastry sheets and repair any cracks by pressing them back together. Trim each sheet into a square. Then cut each larger square into 4 smaller squares. Spoon apples onto the center of each squares. Fold over from corner to corner into a triangle shape, and press edges together to seal. Place turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between them.

Step 5

Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until turnovers are puffed and lightly browned. Cool completely before glazing.

Step 6

To make the glaze, mix the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl. Adjust the thickness by adding more sugar or milk if necessary. Drizzle glaze over the cooled turnovers.
