Super Easy Recipe for Making Apple Turnovers that are Sublime

Classic Apple Turnovers are easy to make, and even easier to eat!

A few weeks ago I took a trip to Glenorie Bakery with my little family. One thing you will learn about me is that I LOVE bakeries and patisseries. I just love everything about them – the smell, the fresh bread, the sweet cakes and pastries. It really is my idea of heaven. And this busy bakery in rural Glenorie was certainly a treat!

Whilst at the bakery buying just about 1 of everything, I came across an apple turnover. I haven’t had an apple turnover since I was about 8, and this one looked so good – crisp puff pastry coated with tiny sugar crystals, lovely cinnamony-apple filling, fresh cream. AHHHH… and maybe even a little bit of maple syrup?

I thought I would try my own version at home.

5 steps to this apple turnover recipe

  1. Heat butter in a saucepan until bubbling. Add apple, and cook for 5 mins until golden.
  2. Add brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon and orange juice and cook for a further 5 mins, or until liquid thickens. Remove from heat and cool.
