Enjoy one of these Easy Apple Turnovers with your favorite hot morning beverage.
I know life is busy for you right? You may look at these Easy Apple Turnovers and think- they look delish but I don’t have time for that. YES, you have time for these because they only take about 45 minutes from start to finish! They are crazy easy and delicious too, thanks to store bought pastry dough.
How to make homemade apple turnovers
Set your puff pastry sheets out on the counter about 45 minutes before you’re going to need them so they can warm to room temperature. Unroll and cut each sheet into 4 equal-sized squares, as shown below.
Peel your apples, core them and shred them in a food processor. No food processor? No problem. Skip coring your apples and grate them on a box grater. The fresh apple taste is amazing in these Easy Apple Turnovers!
Stir sugar and a bit of lemon juice into your freshly shredded apple to keep it from turning brown and give a kiss of sweetness :0) Dump the mixture into a sieve or other strainer placed over a bowl to allow excess apple juice to drain out. I am amazed at how much apple juice drains out in just 5 minutes!
Now you’re ready to place two tablespoons of apple filling on each puff pastry square.
Dip a finger into the excess apple juice and moisten two adjacent edges of each puff pastry square and fold over to form a triangle. Over fold by just a bit to help these Easy Apple Turnovers to stay closed while they bake.
Crimp the edges with a fork to form a tight seal. At this point if you like, you can cover them with plastic wrap and place them in the fridge overnight. Then bake them in the morning for delicious fresh fruit pastries! If not, proceed with the cinnamon and sugar!
With a wet finger or pastry brush (I recommend the brush if you have one), wet the tops of each pastry with the excess apple juice and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 35 minutes and you have your very own beautiful home made pastries. Fresh from the oven Easy Apple Turnovers are a delight and are the perfect flaky, crumbly, light and sweet texture you crave from a fruit-filled pastry.
