My apple tree has produced so many apples this year I literally can’t keep up. I’ve handed out bags of them to friends and family, froze batches and cooked plenty of pies and crumbles. I had been thinking of other things I could bake with my apples and decided to give apple turnovers a go.
It took me two attempts to get them just right as I tend to mix up a few different recipes and add in my own ingredients but I have to say, these turned out to be delicious and super easy to make.
If you fancy making these easy apple tunovers you will need the following:
A sheet of ready rolled Puff Pastry (320g)
6 large cooking apples
3 tablespoons of water
2 teaspoons of sugar
40ml of maple syrup
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ginger
1 tablespoon of skimmed milk
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/gas 6.
Peel, core and chop the cooking apples in to small chunks and add to a pot along with the water, sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon and ginger. Cook on a medium heat for five minutes.
Roll out the sheet of pastry and cut into six even squares.
Fill the middle of each square of pastry with the apple mixture, brush the edges with water and fold one corner over to the opposite corner. Press along the edges to seal and gently press a fork along the edge to create a pattern. Make a small hole at the top with the fork to let the steam out while in the oven.
Mix the milk and egg in a jug and brush the mixture over the top of the pastry and finish off with a sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon over the top.
Bake in the oven for approx 20 minutes until the pastry has risen and turned golden brown.
Leave to cool for few minutes before eaten.
