This was quick, easy and tasty, my 11yr old daughter made them at new year as we had left over puff pastry from our dinner and plenty apples in the fruit bowl. We forgot to dust with icing sugar before serving but delicious all the same.-15 Jan 2012

great way to use up spare apples, I must admit I wasn't expecting them to be so delicious but I stand corrected. Great recipe, thanks for sharing.-14 Sep 2011

So easy and delicious , will make again might try a cherry filling next time .-26 Sep 2011

Apple Turnovers

These apple turnovers are the tastiest little pastries that are perfect for a sweet breakfast or even dessert. I use frozen puff pastry sheets to make them quickly and easily, and the homemade apple cinnamon filling is absolutely to die for. They bake up nice and puffy and golden in the oven and get a drizzle of vanilla glaze over the top for a little extra sweetness. You are definitely going to love these!

You simply cannot go wrong with these easy apple turnovers! Apple turnovers are made with buttery, flaky puff pastry that&rsquos generously stuffed with gooey cinnamon apples and topped with an incredible vanilla glaze. They work great as a sweet brunch option, an afternoon snack or serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the ultimate fall dessert. My favorite way to celebrate the fall season! Oh and they would be such a wonderful addition to any holiday gatherings!


We can make this pie dough in less than ten minutes of work time.

It is so easy to make this pie dough and the ingredients are very basic.

We can get rid of all those trans fat and preservatives found in the store bought puff pastry sheets.

The amazing texture of the baked pie: you will be surprised to see those flaky, crispy,fine layers of pie crust.

We can adjust the sugar of pastry crust according to the sweet or savory filling.


A pastry dessert filled with pieces of sweetened apples, with the pastry folded over to enclose the filling.


The Best Apples for Baking. Honeycrisp apples are the sweetest around and the high price tag reflects their popularity. Pink lady apples have the perfect balance between sweetness and tartness. Baking these apples heat really brings out the apple’s honied, vanilla flavors. Braeburn apples are super crisp and firm, making them the ideal choice for baking. Granny Smith apples are one of the most popular baking apples because of their super-tart flavor. You can also combine them with Honeycrisp apples for that counterbalance. The tartness of the Granny Smith combined with the sweetness of Honeycrisp is phenomenal! Gala apples of all the varieties of apples out there, these melt in your mouth the best!


Yes! Freeze your unbaked turnover on a baking sheet then transfer to a freezer bag and store for up to three months. Bake them without thawing, just know they will take a few more minutes to bake through.


This is my go-to turnover recipe! I always add cinnamon to my apple desserts, and this makes a little more filling than you'll need. I look forward to this every fall after apple picking!

Changed a lot so couldn't give 4 forks as is. Use your favorite cinnamon apple pie filling recipe instead of this one and you'll be fine. Also switch the pans prior to the 15 min mark. Coat the puffs with egg wash and both superfine sugar and rough crystals for a yummy and pretty effect. I love the Dufour brand pastry. Serve warm with homemade whipped cream with vanilla.

Made my own Rough Puff from another Epicurious recipe and used it with this one & LOVED it. This turnover recipe is great, but I don't think the actual filling is that amazing. My daughter helped me & she added cinnamon & it was better. I think next time I will use cinnamon again, and not mash the apples as much. Also, because the edges of the triangles don't really get filling & don't have a lot of flavor, we added a lot of raw sugar around the edges & it turned out great. Hope these tips help!

I used the exact apple varieties and amount of sugar called for in the recipe but mine came out tart. I also added 1/4 tsp of cinnamon, but that was not enough. I used Pepperidge Farm pastry sheets that come two large squares to a box, so there is no need to roll them, just cut each sheet into four smaller squares, simple! I cooked my apples for only 9 mins instead of 12 and left them chunky - the texture after baking was perfect. The pastry was easy to work with and puffed up beautifully. I will definitely make this again with twice as much sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Super easy recipe and delicious!

I'm SO sorry. my review seems to have posted five times. computer epic fail!

I was ready to call this a "fail" as my turnovers went into the oven looking anemic and bedraggled (I had trouble prying the thin pastry off the parchment paper Iɽ rolled it out on). And I did have some apple breach along the pinched edges. BUT. heat forgives a multitude. They came out looking beautifully tanned, puffed, and DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe exactly and found the flavors subtle and perfect.

whoops, forgot to put the fork rating in. 4 forks for sure

so easy and delicious. I added a shake or two of cinnamon to the apples and left it moderately chunky. I started with 4 cups of cut up apples (1 granny smith, 2 golden delicious and 1 gala) and had plenty of filling to make all nine turnovers (not sure why the directions say to only make 8). It was easy enough to make even with two toddlers running around me!

These sound delicious. I've baked turnovers before and look forward to trying this recipe out. I did want to mention that I plan on peeling and chopping my appples into small pieces, adding some cinnamon, butter and sugar to them and excluding the water. I'll cook the apple mixture in a microwavable bowl w/ lid on it for about 3-4 min. (stirring half way through) This will makes it faster and easier for me to make. I'm wanting my apple mixture to still be a bit firm when they're done. As for the pastry part, that's a no-brainer for me (I'll just do my best :-). I also will plan on cooking the turnovers in a 375* oven, for 8-10 min. while watching them closely. And as another writer suggested, will try mine with some vanilla ice cream. Yum. Thanks to all other reviewers for your recipe insights. With them you can't go wrong.

This recipe was a bit involved for the outcome, yet it was delicious. I used the regular Pepperidge Farm puff pastry instead of all-butter. Based on other reviews, I added cinnamon, nutmeg, and some ground cloves. I cut back on the sugar. Golden Delicious apples weren't available at my local Whole Foods Market this time of year, so I used a combination of Granny Smith and Gala apples. I left the filling very chunky and cooled it quickly on an ice bath. The pastry dough wasn't easy to roll out even using some additional flour, and next time Iɽ add some water to the beaten egg so it would brush on in a lighter manner. Used a coarser turbinado sugar sprinkle instead of the superfine. My turnovers didn't rise much, and also started to brown at 15 minutes. I took them out at about 20 minutes total. Next time, Iɽ lower the starting temp from 400F to 375F. The turnovers looked pretty rustic which was ok with me. They tasted great. The filling was just a little too tart for me. Since I had cut back on the suggested sugar to about half, I would probably add a bit more sugar to the filling next time. My husband liked them and said heɽ be happy if I made them again.

Really good and really easy. Iɽ just do 2 things differentlly next time: add more sugar to the filling and add some cinnamon so they're more apple pie-like (just a personal preference). In addition, it didn't take as long to bake as mentioned in the recipe -- mine browned and were done about 10 min earlier.

Did a few things differently.Other cooks mentioned they ended up with mush, so, instead of cooking them on top of the stove, I baked the apples. Only partly crushed them with a masher. Perfection. I rolled the pastry (which was very easy to work with) super thin and baked the turnovers for about half the time. 8 mins at 400 and then 6 mins at 350. They turned out wonderfully and were gobbled up right away. Will definitely make these again.

As with any turnover or pie, one should really spend some time getting the filling perfectly to their liking in terms of sweetness and spice. it's time well spent. I used all gravensteins, which were a bit on the tart side, so i added more sugar than called for. I also added cinnamon and a pinch of Maldon sea salt for good measure. On the recommendation of other reviewers, I sought out all-butter puff pastry from a local specialty store, which was terribly difficult to work with. Between the pastry that adhered itself and the filling that spilled out when i pinched the edges, my cutting board looked like a two year old had been there. I was distraught at the barely recognizable triangles I managed to get into the oven. Through the miracle of heat applied to pastry brushed with an egg wash, though, the finished product was just beautiful, if not perfect. rustic, flakey and wonderfully flavored. i made a second batch using grocery store puff pastry, and although it was easier to work with, I also preferred the flavor of the good stuff.. I'm going to make more of these so that I will have some in the freezer, ready for a quick pop in the oven to enjoy throughout the fall and winter. YUM.

I was REALLY disappointed with this recipe. I had fresh apples from the apple orchard, got the puff pastry, etc. I found the interior of the turnover was like applesauce mush - and no real flavor. The pastry was fine - good, even, and cooked well. But the inside of this turnover was like eating bland babyfood - and I LOVE apple turnovers.

I forgot to mention I baked mine in the middle of the oven and they were cooked after only 15mins at 400F - I did roll my pastry a little thinner so that it would be crispier.

These were super easy to make - I added a dash of cinnamon but kept everything else the same (I used a quality puff pastry - Careme). I served these with some vanilla ice cream and hubby loved them - simple but satisfying.

I did not like this recipe at all. However, my picky husband did so I gave it 2 forks. I would definitely not make this again. The recipe calls for baking in the bottom third of the oven. My turnovers were burning on the bottom within the first 15 minutes of baking. I did not move to the top rack as they would have burned completely. The pastry was so thick that you couldn't even taste the filling.

Delicious, easy. . . a standby for holidays.

I didn't feel that there was anything special about this recipe. It makes a decent turnover, but I've had much better.

i have veiw your french apple turnovers recipe. its sounds quite delicious so i'm planning to try it this weekend. i'll be sure to let you know what i think of it.

These were delightful! I added a dash of cinnamon to the apples. There isn't any all butter puff pastry where I am, but the shortening ones still tasted great. I can only imagine how much better it would be if I had the good stuff handy. It is a bit of fuss for just 8 turnovers, but they really are good - I might have eaten half of them fresh out of the oven.

These are excellent! I have made them twice now with rave reviews.

this recipe is fast and delicious. once i added fresh cranberries which i previously cooked and another time i added nutmeg and cinnamon. both were great additions.

Very easy to make. I halved the filling recipe and it was the perfect amount. I also added a bit of cinnamon to the filling.

I made this twice, once with all butter puff pastry and once with the cheaper version. The good stuff made a world of difference. Mine kept fine in the fridge for a couple of days.

Paleo Apple Turnover

This sweet paleo apple turnover is everything that you’d expect a turnover to be. The pastry-like crust is flaky and crispy. Break through the golden crust to find a warm cinnamon apple filling.

This perfectly portable dessert will have you dancing around your kitchen – holding an apple turnover in each hand while alternating bites between the two little pies. Yup, this happened!

The BEST part about this apple turnover is that it’s so easy to make. If you can make my 3-ingredient paleo naan, then you’ll have no problem making this. I really should change the name of that recipe to “amazingly awesome 3-ingredient multi-purpose bread,” but I kinda like the name “paleo naan.”

Making this recipe is sort of like making my paleo samosas or my paleo empanadas – but there are some differences. These turnovers are twice as big as the empanadas – this recipe will make three decently-sized apple turnovers.

You can use any fruit filling you’d like – but apple turnovers were always a favorite of mine as a kid. The apple filling is easy to make – just combine apples, coconut sugar, water, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg in a saucepan and cook for 10 minutes.

To make the crust, combine almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut milk and salt in a bowl and then pour half a cup of the pancake-like batter onto a pan over medium heat. Cook for about 2-3 minutes or until the bottom firms up. Gently place the flatbread onto a baking sheet – cooked side facing up.

Cut the edges to form a square shape (eat the edges, because you know you want to). Spoon some of the apple filling onto the crust and fold the dough over – sealing with a bit of egg wash.

I recently made a mini-fruit pie video that you can watch to help you make this turnover. The only difference is that the mini-pies are not in a triangular shape – but hopefully, the video will give you an idea of what to do.

Sugar-Free Apple Turnovers

Easy-to-make and delicious-to-have sugar-free recipe for those lazy afternoons.


  • 2 Apples
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • Sweetener, To Taste (optional)
  • 10 Tablespoons Water, Divided
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups Flour
  • ⅔ cups Butter
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 4 Tablespoons Water
  • 1 cup Olive Oil, For Frying


For the filling:
Peel and grate apples, put it into a mixing bowl. Add cinnamon and sweetener (honey, stevia, agave or maple syrup), if using. Don’t use more than 2 spoonfuls even if you have sweet tooth, the apples are sweet enough.

Add water and mix well. Pour into a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Mix remaining water and cornstarch, and add to apple mixure. Mix until smooth and yellowish. Add vanilla and stir vigorously. Remove from heat when it comes to a boil. Set aside and prepare the dough.

For the dough:
Measure flour into a mixing bowl.

Put the bowl over a saucepan of hot water and place butter in bowl to soften so it is easier to work with it. (You can also choose to put the bowl with the butter in the microwave on medium heat for 10 seconds or so. But make sure you place something on top if you don’t fancy cleaning the microwave oven later, as butter might sizzle and splatter.)

Crack egg and add to the flour. Add melted butter and baking powder. (If desired, add a spoonful of honey.) Add water and mix well with your fingers until dough comes together.

Divide dough into 9 small balls of roughly the same size. Sprinkle some flour on a work surface and put one ball in the middle. Flatten with a rolling pin into more or less a rectangular shape. Place a spoonful of filling in the middle. Fold it in half and push the dough together with your fingers. Make sure you don’t leave any gaps where the filling might escape. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.

Pour oil into a frying pan and heat over medium heat. When it starts sizzling, add the 2 apple turnovers into the oil to fry. In about 20 seconds (or more, depending on the hob), flip to fry the other side. Take them out when both sides look golden brown. Repeat with remaining turnovers.

1 package puff pastry sheets
4 large cooking apples
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Sugar Drizzle
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon water

Peel, core and slice apples. In medium saucepan over low heat, cook apples with sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and cinnamon, stirring frequently, until apples are tender. Refrigerate until cool.

Thaw pastry sheets at room temperature 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Unfold pastry on lightly floured surface. Roll each sheet into a 12-inch square and cut into four 6-inch squares. Place 1/4 cup apple mixture in center of each square. Brush edges with water. Fold to form triangles, seal edges firmly with a fork.

Place on 2 baking sheets. Bake 25 minutes or until golden. Cool on wire rack.

For Sugar Drizzle: In small bowl, mix together confectioners' sugar and water. With spoon, drizzle on turnover, allow to set before serving.

Apple Turnovers

Though these apple turnovers may look complex to make, they really are easy and are so worth the effort. This recipe can be made quickly if you use tin apple instead of making your own apple filling. It also tastes great with a peach filling or Nutella filling.

This Apple Turnover recipe makes 24 delicious apple turnovers. These turnovers don’t keep well, so if you don’t need that many, you could halve the recipe.

The cream filling should be added just before serving, or otherwise the apple turnovers will start to get soft and go a little soggy.

After making the apple filling and letting in cool, it is time to make the glaze. This is easy to make, just mix sugar and water in a microwavable bowl and heat for 30 seconds, stir, then heat again for a further 30 seconds. This will need to cool while the puff pastry turnovers are made.

After the turnovers are made, the cream needs to be made. When ready, split the pastry of the turnovers through the middle, add one tablespoon of apple mixture. Then, pipe in some whipped cream and the apple turnover is ready to eat. To serve, you can sprinkle with icing sugar.

I used WW White Wraps. They are 3 SmartPoints per wrap. The 4 wraps that were used in this recipe, worked out as 14 SmartPoints in total.

Sainsbury's be Good to Yourself Tortilla Wraps work out at 15 SmartPoints for 4 wraps - meaning that each turnover would be 2 SmartPoints and two turnovers would be 5 SmartPoints.

If you use other brand wraps just beware that the SmartPoints can vary widely!

For example Tesco White Tortilla Wraps work out at 22 SmartPoints for 4 (meaning that one Turnover would be 3 SmartPoint and two Turnovers would be 7 SmartPoints).

If you are in the US, there are a number of 1 SmartPoint wraps including the Extreme Wellness Wraps & Mama Lupes brands, both of which are available to buy as multipacks from Amazon.

Using these brands reduce the SmartPoint value of these Apple Turnovers to 1 SmartPoint for one and 3 SmartPoints for two on the Blue & Purple plans !
