Servings 8 turnovers

Ingredients

Turnover

  • 2 sheets puff pastry dough
  • 3/4 can apple pie filling
  • 1/4-1/3 cup caramel sauce

Apple Cider Glaze

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp apple cider
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp corn syrup {optional}

Garnish- Cinnamon & Sugar

Instructions

  1. Remove puff pastry from freezer about 20-30 minutes before you are ready to use them.

  2. Preheat oven to 400°.

  3. Unfold both sheets of puff pastry and cut each one into 4 squares. I like to use a pizza cutter.

  4. Add a heaping tablespoon of apple pie filling to the middle of each square of puff pastry dough. Top apple pie filling with a teaspoon {or so} of caramel sauce.

  5. Fold each square in half, making a triangle. Remove any filling that comes out the sides with a clean paper towel. Using the tines of a fork, crimp the perimeter of the triangle to seal the edges of the turnover. Then use the tines of the fork to poke 2-3 holes in the top of turnover to allow for steam to escape while they bake.

  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the turnovers are golden brown and the pastry is puffed. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15-20 minutes.

Apple Cider Glaze

  1. While the turnovers are cooling, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Adjust the amount of apple cider according to how thick or thin you would like the glaze. I like the consistency to be thick enough to stay on the turnovers but thin enough to pour. The corn syrup will help the glaze set up faster.

  2. Drizzle the glaze onto the turnovers and then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar while the glaze is still wet.

  3. Serve your caramel apple turnovers warm or at room temperature.

  4. Store in an air tight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. They are best fresh.
