Quick and Easy Apple Turnovers

Ever wondered what to do with that spare apple or two that nobody wants, or the odd ones that fall from the tree? ┬áMy youngest came home from school, all fired up to show us what he’d made so quickly with an apple at school.

Who am I to say no to that…..

No measurements, no being picky, this is just a pinch here and there and off you go.

I’d a block of 425g Puff Pastry, and we used about a third to a half for this.

Yield: 4-4.5 Apple Turnovers.

Ingredients

  • Puff Pastry – around 200g.
  • Sugar.
  • Milk.
  • 2 Small Apples or 1 Large.

Method

  1. Roll out the pastry, to an approximate large square.

  2. Cut the pastry into smaller squares, so that you have four. Tidy the edges if you feel you need to. Littlest had made a couple of his more of a rectangle, so we had to fiddle around with it a bit at the stuffing stage.

  3. Peel, core and chop the apple, then divide it up into your pastry pieces, in the centre.

  4. Fold the squares over, point to point, then press down on the edges with a fork.

  5. Brush the tops with milk, then sprinkle on sugar before piercing the turnovers.  Then, simply bake in pre-heated over at 220 Degrees, or following your own pastry pack advice, for around 15 minutes.
