It is apple time! Steve has always tried to get me to make apple turnovers, but I have always resisted because I had something else I was wanting to do with apples this time of the year. But, this year I made them, and I am so glad I finally did! They were wonderful! And, they were super easy to make.
- 1 box (2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 3 large apples, peeled and chopped (I used Granny Smith.)
- juice of one lemon
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons water
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Toss the apples in the lemon juice to prevent browning. I actually do this as I go along chopping the apples.
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together apples, sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch.
- Cook, stirring constantly until apples are tender and mixture has thickened
- Cut both sheets of puff pastry into squares. You will have 8 squares. Place on two cookie sheets.
- Top each pastry square with 3-4 tablespoons of apple mixture. You won’t use quite all of it, but it is good to eat right by itself.
- Fold diagonal ends over, so that you have triangles. Press edges with a fork to seal.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. I had to put mine on separate racks, so I switched them after 15 minutes.
- While turnovers are baking, stir together confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and water.
- When turnovers are done, drizzle glaze over the top.
