To celebrate National Apple Turnover Day, bake a batch of apple turnovers for your family and friends. Here is a recipe for you. These turnovers are made with frozen puff pastry so you won't need to make the dough yourself. Just don't forget to thaw 1 pastry sheet beforehand.
Peel and core 1 large apple, cut it into 1/4-inch dice. In a bowl, stir together apple chunks, 3 tbs dried cranberries, 3 tbs heated apple jelly, 1 tbs cornstarch, and 1/8 tsp cinnamon.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry and cut into 6 parts. You need roughly 4-inch squares. Divide the apple filling among pastry squares, leaving a 1-inch border. Brush border with lightly beaten egg. Cut 2 tbs cold unsalted butter into bits and dot filling with it.
Fold each square into a triangle and crimp edges, using a fork. Cut a couple of slits in top of each turnover. Brush lightly with egg and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 °F until puffed and golden. Let cool to warm and enjoy your turnovers on National Apple Turnover Day!Remind me with Google Calendar
