Apple Pie Turnovers | Recipes

I decided to make apple pie turnovers when my parents were here  because my dad is a big sucker for pastries. They came out pretty good, however, upon my excitement for him to eat them, his reply was, “they’re OK”. WHAT!?!?!?! I was astounded. I am a pretty good baker, and he likes just about any pastry. The problem, you see, was that I didn’t put the sugary glaze on them. When my dad eats a pastry, he likes it in all of it’s trans-fatty, sugary goodness. I didn’t leave the glaze off on purpose (which normally I would). I just completely skipped that part of the recipe! I left it in the recipe below, so you don’t make the same mistake 😉

Apple Pie Turnovers


4 cups water

4 apples- whatever kind you want. Peeled, cored and sliced

2 Tbsp. butter

1 c. brown sugar

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 Tbsp. cornstarch

1 Tbsp. water

1 package of puff pastry sheets, thawed

1 c. confectioners sugar

1 Tbsp. milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. Combine the 4 cups water in a large bowl. Place the sliced apples in the water to keep them from browning. (you can add lemon juice if you’d like- I did not)
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Drain water from apples, and place them into the hot skillet. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes. Add brown sugar, and cinnamon, and cook, stirring, for 2 more minutes. Stir together cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Pour into the skillet, and mix well. Cook for another minute, or until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat to cool slightly.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Unfold puff pastry sheets, and repair any cracks by pressing them back together. Trim each sheet into a square. Then cut each larger square into 4 smaller squares. Spoon apples onto the center of each squares. Fold over from corner to corner into a triangle shape, and press edges together to seal. Place turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between them.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until turnovers are puffed and lightly browned. Cool completely before glazing.
  6. To make the glaze, mix together the confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl. Adjust the thickness by adding more sugar or milk if necessary. Drizzle glaze over the cooled turnover.
