The sound of apples,Â cinnamon and puff pastry is very appealing, so apple turnovers wasÂ definitelyÂ something I wanted to try out.
- Melt the butter in a pot, then add the apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and orange zest and cook over medium heat until the apples soften a bit (around 5-10 minutes)
- Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and cook for a further minute
- Transfer the mixture on to a plate and leave to cool completely
- Unfold each sheet of puff pastry onto a lightly floured surface, and roll out an extra inch on each side
- Cut the sheet into 4 squares, and place a tablespoon of the mixture in the centre of the square, brushing the edges of the square with egg wash. Seal each square to form a triangle. Place a fork in some flour and crinkle the edges to make sure the triangle is completely sealed.
- Place the turnovers onto a baking tray lined with a baking sheet. Beat the egg and milk together to make your egg wash, then and brush the tops with it
- Using a knife poke a hole in the turnover to allow the steam to escape. Sprinkle the surface of the turnover with brown sugar
- Place in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes or until golden/brown
You can serve with runny icing, or caramel sauce, or just as it is! This is a tasty and easy dessert to try out. If you are not a fan of oranges, decrease the zest in this recipe. Most importantly, enjoy :)
