Apple Turnovers with a Vanilla Glaze

Apple Turnovers

Since my apple pie was a big FAIL, I decided to try again. This time I used my Apple Picking apples to make flaky Apple Turnovers with a Vanilla Glaze. These turnovers are easy to make and will make you look like a master baker. The secret is store-bought puff-pastry dough.

Apple Turnovers

Start by peeling and dicing up 3-4 small apples. Add them to a medium-sized saucepan with 2 tablespoons of butter. Caramelize the apples slightly in the butter, then add in 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon allspice, 1/4 teaspoon ginger,  1/8 teaspoon cloves, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Stir until combined and a thick sauce begins to form.

Cooked Apples

Meanwhile, while your apples are cooking roll out your puff pastry sheet and cut into 4 squares. Add about 1/4 cup of apple filling to the center of your puff pastry dough.

In another bowl, mix one egg with a splash of milk. Brush egg around all four corners of your puff pastry dough. Fold over dough, from one point to another to form a triangle and seal the edges with a fork. Brush the tops with more egg.

Bake the turnovers for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

While the turnovers are baking, mix together 1/2 cup of powered sugar with 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 tablespoon of milk. Mix until a smooth glaze forms  (Add more powered sugar or milk to get proper consistency). Drizzle over turnovers once they have cooled slightly.
