    So Easy


The sound of apples, cinnamon and puff pastry is very appealing, so apple turnovers was definitely something I wanted to try out.
  1. 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)
  2. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and cook for a further minute
  3. Transfer the mixture on to a plate and leave to cool completely
  4. Unfold each sheet of puff pastry onto a lightly floured surface, and roll out an extra inch on each side
  5. 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. 
  6. 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
  7. Using a knife poke a hole in the turnover to allow the steam to escape. Sprinkle the surface of the turnover with brown sugar
  8. 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 :)
