Apple Turnovers

Apple Turnovers
Serves 6-8.
Makes 8 pieces.

3-4 granny smith apples
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1 egg (optional)
1 T. water
1 T. cornstarch
1 lemon or lime, juiced

1 package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed


Preheat the oven 400 F.

 1.  Peel, core and slice the apples.  Put them into a bowl of water and lemon or lime juice to prevent them from browning. 

2.  Drain the sliced apples from the water.  In a large skillet over medium high heat melt the butter and cook the apples for 2 minutes.

3.  Gradually add the brown + white sugar, cinnamon and cook for 2 minutes. 

4.  In a seperate bowl, mix the 1 T. cornstarch and 1 T. water together.  Stir in the cornstarch mix into with the cooked apples, cook for 1 minute or until the sauce has thickened.  Set aside for filling.

5.  The puff pastry sheets that I bought came in 2.  Cut the pastry sheets into 8 squares.  Flour the surface fill each square with a spoonful of apple goodness and seal the edges with either water or an egg-wash, which consist of egg and a tablespoon of water.  Using a fork, seal the edges together.

6.  Place them onto the baking sheet, leaving an inch of space between them.  Optional: brush the tops with egg-wash to get that nice golden yellow color.  Bake for 25 minutes.  Best served hot out of the oven.

Enjoy! (:
