These turnovers are so easy to make. They are so yummy. I am not a huge fan of apple but these are very good and I have made these turnovers in cherry. I picked this recipe to make for my Simple, Easy, Cooking Class at the library. They were a big hit. The recipe calls to make them them big but I have cut them down and made the turnovers smaller.

1/3 cup sugar
1 TB. all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 cups chopped peeled apples
1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
3 TB. Butter, melted
2 TB. Sugar
¼ tsp. Cinnamon
vanilla ice cream, optional
- In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon; add apples and toss to coat. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each pastry sheet into a 12-in. square. Cut each into four squares. Or eight if you want smaller turnovers.
- Spoon 1/2 cup apple mixture into the center of each square; fold diagonally in half and press edges to seal. If doing eight squares per sheet do about 2 TB of mixture. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Or I like to use my spill mat sheets.
- In a small bowl, combine the butter, sugar and cinnamon; brush over pastry. Bake at 400° for 12-16 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream if desired. Yield: 8 or 16 servings.If you want cherry use a can of cherry pie filling.
