Apple turnover recipe made with one sheet puff pastry, apples, brown sugar, and spices.
Now that you are armed with a 15-minute puff pastry recipe, you are considered dangerous.
You are capable of whipping up an apple turnover recipe, flaky appetizers with ham and cheese, and French pastries at any time of day. Please, use this information carefully and to your advantage during the whole holiday season.
If you’re still afraid of dough, this is the one dough you shouldn’t fear! It only requires 3 ingredients plus a little rolling, and you’re done 15 minutes later.
The best 15 minutes you’ll spend this morning is making this dough. I can barely talk about the flaky layers. Oh, the flaky layers. And the buttery scent while it bakes? My tongue was almost on the floor. I was laying next to the oven getting high off the scent. Ok, too much information.
I tweaked the apple filling recipe from my apple-stuffed baked apples and use it in these turnovers. It did not disappoint. In fact, these turnovers were the highlight of my morning all week.
So, let’s review. Make this easy dough: recipe here.
Saute some apples. Roll the dough out into a perfect square. Pile the apples into each of the four corners of the dough. Trim, fold over, and crimp the edges closed. Bake until your kitchen smells like Heaven (20 minutes to Heaven).
I love that this apple turnover recipe makes just 4 turnovers. They freeze very well, both pre-bake and post-bake, so you can always keep them on hand. I love using them as a fun breakfast treat on the weekends.
Don’t let apple turnovers cool. Eat them right away. Your fingertips will recover from the burns, trust me.
Tips for a flawless apple turnover recipe:
- Puff pastry is superior to pie dough when making turnovers, in my not-so-humble opinion.
- Dice the apple small, but not too finely. See the photo above for reference.
- A beaten egg yolk brushed on top will help make these apple turnovers look like they’re from a bakery. Turbinado corase sugar helps, too, but is totally optional.
