Iced Apple Turnovers

3/11/2017

Do you guys have one thing from your childhood you loved so much but can no longer find? On the weekend my mom would make us Apple Turnovers and they were always my favorite. But one tragic day the brand she bought became super hard to find but after finding out about Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets® I became motivated to make them myself. These yummy treat are the perfect snack to bring to any Spring time brunch, or make Easter morning.
Ingredients:
2 packages of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets®
For Filling:
4 Baking Apples chopped
1 1/2 Cups Water
3/4 Cups Sugar
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 Tbs. Lemon Juice
For Icing:
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
6 tea. Milk






Recipe:
(makes sixteen turnovers)
Take Puff Pastry Sheets out of the freezer and set on the counter so they can soften up. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine the water, cornstarch, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and lemon juice in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cook for approximately 3 minutes, or until mixture becomes thick. Add the chopped apples and reduce to a simmer. Allow the apple mixture to simmer until the apples become slightly tender.
Roll one Puff Pastry Sheets out onto a slightly flowered surface and cut it into four squares. Spoon a small about of mixture into the center of the square then fold over and pressed closed. Continue this for all four Puff Pastry Sheets.
Place the turnovers on slightly greased baking sheets and cook 10-12 minutes.



These turnovers were so much easier to make than I imagined, and honestly they tasted way better than the frozen pre-made ones I remember. I can't wait to try more recipes using Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry Sheets®. and on their site you can find tons of recipes. I can't wait to try the Cocoa Petit Pastry Puffs, and the Buffalo Chicken Puffs. What recipe on their site looks most delicious to you? Will you be preparing one for Easter or another special occasion this Spring? Let me know!
