Apple Cinnamon Turnovers – the smell of heaven in my kitchen

When I read that Mrs. No-No was making Rosemary Apple Turnovers, I just knew I had to make them. I really liked the idea that her recipe doesn’t require that the apple filling be cooked ahead of time. Have I ever mentioned I’m a diehard shortcut lover?

Besides, I had tons of green apples in the fridge and a pack of puff pastry in the freezer that’d been waiting for that stroke of inspiration to hit me. This is it! I really had no excuse.

Of course, Mrs. No-No’s recipe (go check it out) is much more gourmet than mine. Trust me to run out of rosemary, nutmeg and a few other ingredients. But nothing could stand in my way, I already had that aroma swirling in my head.

I used:

  • 10 puff pastry squares
  • 2 green apples, diced small
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 egg yolk, beaten

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. In a bowl, combine the apples, honey, cinnamon and flour. Mix well. Place a scoop of the filling in the middle of the puff pastry square and fold into a triangle. Press down on the sides with the tines of a fork to seal juices in completely. Pierce some holes in the top of the puff and brush with egg wash. Bake for 25 minutes or till top is golden brown.

My kitchen smelt like heaven. The Apple Puffs turned out really, well, puffy and gorgeous. You can see the crispy layers and that rich apple filling was practically oozing out when I cut it open. We ate this for lunch, not as a dessert.

My taste test team, aka my 2 daughters, gave this the 2 thumbs up and called for an encore. Thank you, Carla, for a delicious recipe. I grabbed 4 more packs of puff pastry and more apples from the store over the weekend. So you know what I’ll be up tomorrow 😉 .

What are you making this week? I’m always up for great meal ideas.
