Apple Turnovers


 Kathleen's party challenge at Let's Dish! is an apple theme for the month of September.   Stop by to visit Cuisine Kathleen to check out the party.   My sweet sister gave me four of these beautiful clear glass plates when my dear hubby and I visited last May.  She found these at a thrift store and they are just perfect for Fall.  I made the gingham napkin and just fringed the edges.   What's better than a real apple in a cloche for a pretty centerpiece?


I found this beautiful apple mug, from Tag, at Tuesday Morning, earlier in the summer.  I just loved the colors.  Sweetheart Cinnamon tea is my flavor to go with the turnovers. 



I put a paper leaf that is used on cheese trays, under the plate.  My polka dot placemat goes great with the theme.  It just so happens that I have two turnovers and I'd be happy to share with you.  Come on over!

This recipe comes courtesy of the Mimi's Café website, but adapted by Kitty's Kozy Kitchen.  These little pastries would be wonderful to serve after a dinner party or for a tea party.  The filling made too much for the pastries, but you can use the leftover for some chunky applesauce, or use the other sheet of puff pastry and make 18 turnovers. 


Filling: 


3/4 pound Granny Smith apples
3/4 pound Golden Delicious apples
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
a little freshly grated nutmeg


Pastry:
1 sheet of 14- ounce package all-butter frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 egg, beaten to blend (for glaze)
Sparkling Sugar

Instructions

For filling:

Peel, core, and cut apples into 1-inch pieces (about 4 cups). Place apples in medium saucepan; add ¼ cup water, 3 tablespoons sugar, and lemon juice. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves. Cover; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until apples are very tender, stirring frequently, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat. Gently mash apples with fork or potato masher until mixture is very soft but still chunky. Cool completely. Cover and refrigerate.

For pastry:

Roll out pastry on lightly floured surface to 15-inch square. Cut pastry into nine 5-inch squares. Place 1 generous tablespoon filling in center of each of 9 squares . Lightly brush edges of 1 pastry with beaten egg. Fold half of pastry square over filling, forming triangle. Press and pinch pastry edges with fingertips to seal tightly. Lightly brush pastry with beaten egg. Sprinkle lightly with sparkling sugar. Repeat with remaining squares. Using thin, sharp knife, make 3 small slits on top of each triangle to allow steam to escape. Place triangles on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Bake turnovers until beginning to color, about 15 minutes.  Reduce oven temperature to 350°F; continue baking until turnovers are firm and golden, 10 to 15 minutes longer. Cool at least 15 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.

  18. Apple turnovers are one of my favorite treats :) I like to make them for a Sunday morning breakfast since we are always rushed to get to church and they are great to grab and eat on the way. I will have to try your recipe sometime, sweet Kitty.

    Love to you!

  19. Kitty, your apple turnovers look delicious. I've never made these, so thanks for sharing the recipe. Love apple pie. These look like the perfect treat to usher in the first of the fall season.

  21. Your apple turnovers look wonderful Kitty, especially with cinnamon tea! I'd love one (or two :) this morning! Love your cute mug and apple plates!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Very very yummy looking, Kitty! I need to try that tea...its a new one to me. Your apple turnovers look scrumptious. I think I'd make apple stuff more often if I owned an apple peeler/corer. I stood at the sink for almost an hour peeling apples for a pie yesterday. Ugh! (neighbor brought over a HUGE bag to share)
    Next time, I'll try making your turnovers. I've only been to Mimi's Cafe twice, while visiting my sister in AZ. We don't have any near us here in Ohio. Maybe that is a Good Thing!! LOL

    Hugs,

  23. True confession: I've never made actual apple turnovers (that didn't originate in a tube that you womp on the counter.) These look delicious,and I'd love to try them when the girls come home next. I'm currently gathering recipes for just such a time.

    And now, to zip on down to the previous post which I saw when I came here. I want to see the quiche recipe too.

  34. Hi Kitty, Your turnovers sound delicious with the combination of the two apples! I used gala and golden delicious in my pie tonight and added a few dried cranberries for a little variety. I think the nutmeg in yours must be good, too. Pour me a cup of your cinnamon tea! Thank you for sharing! Linda

  40. These are my kind of apple turnovers, Kitty, because I'm not such a whiz at making my own pie pastry. :) They really look and sound delicious!! Do you know my mother-in-law gave me some apple plates just like yours? Now you've given me some cute ideas of how to use mine. Your whole apple table setting is so pretty and festive for fall; I wish I lived close enough to pop over and eat a turnover with you. :)

    Thanks for sharing the yummy recipe, Kitty, and have a wonderful day!
