  • 2 small apples granny smith are ideal
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 puff pastry sheets thawed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 
  • Peel, core, and dice apples into 1/2" cubes. In a bowl, add apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Toss to coat and set aside.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry sheets to approximately 12 inch squares. Cut each sheet into four squares. 
  • Spoon 1/4 cup of apple filling onto half of each square, avoiding 1/2 an inch around the edges. Fold the opposite corner of each puff pastry over to cover filling. This will form a triangle.
  • Press the edges with a fork to seal. Cut a small vent into the tops of each turnover (or prick with a fork).
  • In a small bowl, add the egg and 1 tablespoon of water. Whisk together to create an egg wash. Brush the tops of each turnover with egg wash.
  • Sprinkle each turnover with turbinado sugar. 
  • Transfer turnovers to parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 19-22 minutes, or until turnovers are golden brown. 


  • To thaw puff pastry, place in refrigerator the night before, or thaw on counter top for 30 minutes.
  • Turbinado sugar can be substituted with granulated sugar.
  • Egg wash can be substituted with heavy cream. Brush the tops of your turnovers with heavy cream instead of egg wash.
