I admit that until recently I mostly went to the store or bakery to buy apple puff pastry turnovers. I actually don’t know why. After all, this is a very simple recipe that will make you enjoy perhaps the best apple turnovers you’ve ever had.
If you like fruit desserts as much as I do, you will definitely like these easy apple puff pastry turnovers. This recipe takes no more than half an hour. And your active time takes about 10 minutes. With its simplicity and freshness, it reminds me of this quick and healthy quark cake.
How to make homemade apple turnovers?
Of course, you need apples. I also like to add half a pear. This gives the turnovers a pleasant and interesting sweet taste.
You can eat the other half of a pear right away. At least you won’t be so impatient when you smell the amazing aroma of cooked apples and pears accompanied by fragrant cinnamon.
Don’t forget cornstarch. This, in turn, guarantees the necessary dense texture of our filling.
When you cut the puff pastry into squares about 4 inches (10 cm), spread 2 or 3 tablespoons of the filling around the center. But start with two at a time to see if three spoons are not too much. The filling should just be enough and not leak.
By the way, I try to use relatively little sugar, since apple juice and fruit are also quite sweet. However, if you prefer your desserts to be sweeter, feel free to add more sugar.
Before baking, simply rub the apple puff pastry turnovers with an egg and bake in the preheated oven for about 17 minutes. Don’t forget to let them cool after baking. This is always the hardest step, isn’t it? Definitely for me as I am often very impatient (and always hungry)!Print
