I’m sure your family will love this dessert, especially if they also love anything apples! Learn the full recipe by watching the video below.



  • 1 lb puff pastry (two sheets)
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 1 & 1/4 lb Granny Smith apples (three medium)
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 egg + 1 tbsp water, for egg wash

For the glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 – 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream


Step 1

To start, thaw your frozen puff pastry dough according to the package. Next, peel your apples, remove the cores, and dice them into 1/3-inch thick pieces. Set aside. Now, place a pot over medium heat. Melt one tablespoon of butter, then add the diced apples. Cook while stirring occasionally; until they are softened, about five minutes. Next, stir in 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon, and 1/8 tsp of salt. Continue simmering the apples for about three minutes or until they are soft and caramelized. After this, take them off the heat and set them aside to cool.

Step 2

Lightly dust your work surface with some flour, and unfold your first pastry sheet. Roll the sheet into an 11-inch square using a rolling pin, then cut it into four equal-sized squares. After this, add 1 tbsp of the cooled apple mixture over the center of each square (keep a half-inch border at the edges.) Brush the egg wash on the edges with a pastry brush, then bring the two edges together, pinching lightly to seal. Use a fork to go all around the edges of the pastry, pressing down firmly, then cut three slits in the top to create vents. Transfer them to a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 20 minutes. (Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F at this point.)

Step 3

Remove them from the fridge after 20 minutes, and just before baking, brush the tops with the remaining egg wash. Bake them in the preheated oven for 20 to 23 minutes. After baking, let them cool slightly. For the glaze, combine 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and 2 tbsp of heavy whipping cream in a bowl. Drizzle the glaze over the apple turnovers while they are still warm.
