Do you sometimes feel like having a delicious and fresh piece of cake that is still warm and smells of butter and dough? Then I have just the right thing for you with this super simple recipe for fresh apple turnovers!
These crispy and juicy apple pockets are really easy to prepare. You only need a few ingredients and you don’t need a lot of time until these delicious little pouches are ready on the table. I also use ready-made puff pastry from the freezer in this recipe. You can get this in every common supermarket and it simply has the advantage that the puff pastry no longer has to be prepared yourself and it is already pre-formed into suitable slices. This makes it even easier to make these delicious apple turnovers yourself.
Prepare apple turnovers
In addition to the puff pastry, you will of course also need fresh apples. I recommend a rather floury apple (e.g. Boskoop), as these become nice and soft when baked and make the apple pocket even more juicy. I peel and dice the apples very quickly, mix them with a little water, lime juice, cinnamon and sugar and let them cook gently in the microwave for 3-4 minutes. Meanwhile, the dough can be wonderfully prepared. I brush it with some jam (I like apricot jam best for my apple pockets) and sprinkle a little cinnamon and sugar over it. Then 3-4 tablespoons of the apple pieces can be spread over the dough, which are then covered with another sheet of dough. Of course, the more apples you put in your apple pocket, the juicier and fuller it will be in the end. Since the dough will rise a lot during baking, I recommend giving it a little air by making 2-3 cuts in the lid with a sharp knife. This also gives the bag a nice look later on.
Apart from the cuts in the pastry lid, you should continue to press the puff pastry slices on the edge with a fork so that the apples do not fall out afterwards. This gives the apple pockets a nice pattern when they rise during baking. There are of course no limits to your creativity. Whether you just make even notches with a fork or even simply press the dough together with a spoon or your fingers is of course up to you. By the way, you can preheat the oven to 180 degrees while you’re preparing the apple turnovers. In the end, that saves a few more minutes of time.
