Apple Turnovers

During the week Russell has to leave fairly early for work, around 6:00a.m. Although I would love to cook a nice breakfast during the week, since Russell is not home to partake in it, I usually end up eating cereal. The weekends are a different story, I am able to fix a yummy breakfast for the both of us.

Russell and I both love football season (Roll Tide!!)--I love waking up early and preparing a yummy breakfast while ESPN Gameday plays in the background. Seeing as how I also love apple pastries, especially apple turnovers, it only makes perfect sense to make apple turnovers on a football Saturday morning :)

  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Thaw puff pastry according to package directions.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, combine chopped apples with lemon juice and cinnamon. Add in sugar, brown sugar, and butter. Toss to coat.

Once puff pastry has thawed, cut pastry into 4 squares.

Divide apple mixture between the 4 squares. Pinch the dough at the end to close dough. Bake on parchment covered baking sheet for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until puff pastry is golden brown on top.

To top apple turnovers with icing combine:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Once apple turnovers are complete drizzle with icing.
