Easy Apple Turnovers

Make 8 turnovers


  • 2 cups small diced (peeled) apples
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 (17.3-oz.) package frozen puff pastry (2 sheets), thawed
  • Flour, for dusting table top
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • White sugar (optional)


First things first! Preheat oven to 400°F, and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.


  1. Wet ingredients first!
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, use a wooden spoon to stir the apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice, set aside


  1. Work on the pastry sheet!
  • Put a bit flour over both hands, and dust flour on a clean table top, unfold the puff pastry sheets onto the table. Use a rolling pin to gently roll over the pastry to seal any perforations. Cut each sheet into 4 squares (total 8)
  • Use a slotted spoon, scoop a portion of the apple mixture into the center of each puff pastry square, then fold the pastry across diagonally to form triangle.
  • Use a fork, crimp together the edges then transfer the turnovers to the baking sheet (1 sheet for 4 turnovers)
  • Cut 3 small slits in the tops of each turnover, then brush top with the whisked egg. Sprinkle the turnovers with white sugar (Optional)
  • Bake for 17-20 minutes or until they are golden brown and puffed, and let cool on baking sheet


Done, now let’s eat them!
