Apples are all American Comfort food, they are so versatile in the fact that they can be used in so many different ways. This is my Apple Turnover Recipe. I like making my own puff pastry, but you can buy store bought with just (well, almost) as favorable results. If you need a puff pastry recipe I have one here. Increase the filling ingredients and make a full size apple pie with this filling too. Yum!
Delectable Dessert’s Apple Turnovers
2 Apples, peeled, cored & diced
1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp. Cinnamon (I like Cinnamon)
Dash of Nutmeg
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar (Packed)
Pinch of Salt
2 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
2 Tbsp. Flour
3 Tbsp. Kraft Caramel Bits
3 Tbsp, Heath Milk Choc. Toffee Bits
5 Tbsp. Golden Raisins
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel, core and dice 2 apples. In a mixing bowl, mix the apples with the lemon juice until well coated. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and pinch of salt; stir well. In a skillet, melt 2 Tbsp. of butter; add the apple mixture and saute’ until apples are tender and release their juices. Sprinkle the flour over the apples and stir until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. In a mixing bowl, mix the apple mixture with the Caramel bits, toffe bits and raisins. Mix well. Roll puff pastry to 1/8 inch. Cut pastry into squares about 4X4 (Or whatever size you want). Spoon some filling into the center of your square and fold over to make a triangle. Seal edges. Place pastries on a non-stick cookie sheet (or Silpat). Brush with milk and coarse sanding sugar, and bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Makes 4-8 turnovers, depending on size.
