Apple Turnovers

If you peruse my dessert section you'll probably notice a trend...chocolate! I am a self-proclaimed chocoholic. If I can sneak chocolate into something, I will.

Every once in awhile there is an exception to the rule. As is the case with these apple turnovers. They (and I can't believe I'm going to say this) just don't need the chocolate!

Apple Turnovers

6 gala apples, peeled and diced
1 cup water
½ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1.5 teaspoons cinnamon
¼ teaspoon allspice
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon salt
1 package (2 sheets) puff pastry
Eggwash (1 egg + 1T water, mixed well)

Combine all ingredients except puff pastry and egg wash in a pot. Bring to a boil then reduce to medium heat. Cook about 30 minutes or until apples are tender but not falling apart.

Meanwhile, prepare your pastry. Roll out and cut into squares. A 4” square is a good size (shown above), but if you want large pastries, do a 6” square. 

Place filling into the center of the square. Use egg wash around the edges and fold into a triangle. Use a fork to seal the edges shut. Cut a vent (2 if doing a 6” square) into the top and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.

Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes or until golden.
