Apple Turnovers with Puff Pastry

I have a friend who has a big apple tree and
she always bring me tons of apples. Some dishes
or desserts i try with these apples are apple
,apple cake,apple pie and apple turnover.
I got this recipe from the Big and it
is been my favourite for quiet some time. I
change few things in the recipe.


2 apples [preferably granny smith]

Dash of nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons butter cut into small pieces

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon milk

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 package frozen puff pastry thawed according

to package directions

White sparkling sugar-optional


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a bowl toss together the apples, lemon

juice, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt,

cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter until well

combined. Place the apple mixture in medium

saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring

occasionally. Continue cooking until apples are

soft and mixture has reduced to a jam-like

consistency, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from

heat and let cool to room temperature.

Spread the sheet of puff pastry on a lightly

floured surface. Dust the pastry lightly with

flour and, using a rolling pin, roll the pastry

into a 12-inch square. Using a sharp paring

knife, trim the edges and cut the dough into 4

equal squares.

Spoon one quarter of the apple mixture in the

middle of each square,

and fold the dough in

half to form a triangle. Seal the edges by

pressing them together with the tines of a fork.

Transfer to the baking sheet. Poke a few

holes in the top of each turnover with the tip

of a paring knife.

Cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap and

refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes to firm

slightly. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400F.

Remove the turnovers from the refrigerator, and

remove the plastic wrap. Brush the top of each

turnover with milk and sprinkle with white

sparkling sugar.

Bake until golden brown and flaky, about

15minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool

slightly. Serve warm.
