Apple Turnovers:

  • 1 17.3-ounce package puff pastry, thawed according to package directions
  • 2 medium apples peeled cored, and chopped into small pieces
  • ΒΌ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg white lightly beaten

Vanilla Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk or more as needed to thin out the glaze


To make the apple turnovers:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Unroll both pieces of thawed puff pastry, cut each one into four squares (you'll have eight total pieces).
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine the chopped apple, sugar, flour, and cinnamon and mix until everything is well combined.
  • Spoon the apple filling into one corner of the puff pastry (about 1/4 cup for each piece), fold the other corner over, then crimp with a fork to seal.
  • Brush each turnover with the egg white.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

To make the vanilla glaze:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. If needed, add a bit more milk to thin out the glaze.
  • Evenly distribute the glaze between all of the turnovers.
