Apple Turnover Recipe

These tasty apple pouches are based on a recipe from the Food Network’s Ina Garten. The shortcut here is using frozen puff pastry. It’s a dessert that travels really well and can be served warm or at room temperature.

These pastries make the perfect addition to a baby shower brunch, an early morning tailgate or a morning meeting. Serve these with hot tea or coffee and really satisfy your guests' sweets cravings! Making this pastry for a bunch of early risers will be the perfect way to greet the morning!


  • Zest of 1/2 an orange
  • Juice of 1/2 an orange
  • 3 tablespoons no-sugar added apple sauce
  • 3 yellow delicious or granny smith apples, peeled and chopped into
  • 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar, plus extra for sprinkling on top
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 package (2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, just defrosted
  • 1 egg beaten for egg wash

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine top nine ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Flour a board and roll out each sheet of puff pastry to about 1 ½ its size. Cut each sheet into 4 evenly sized squares (a pizza cutter works well).

Brush the edges of each square with egg wash and place about 1/3 cup of the apple mixture on the square. Fold the pastry diagonally over the apple mixture and press the edges with a fork.

Transfer to a parchment-paper lined sheet pan. Brush the top with egg wash, sprinkle with sugar, make 2 small slits in the pastry, and bake for 20 minutes -- until browned and puffed.
