Apple Turnovers

I was browsing at the bakery section of my local grocery store and I realized that I have never had a Turnover.  This might come as a shock to most but it is not something that my family will ever consider buying when the other options include muffins, cupcakes, brownies and cakes. Same goes with me – it never crossed my mind to try a turnover. Of course, I decided to attempt making one at home. So the experiment began.  I did some research and looked at tons of recipes for inspiration and whalaa I knew what I needed to make a turnover.  The best thing about this recipe is that I had all the ingredients in my pantry.  It is that simple to make.

 

The fruits that I had a lot of that day were apples and oranges which is why I decided to make Apple Turnovers with an Orange Zest Glaze. I love both flavors and what could be better than combining both together into a soft and fluffy puff pastry.  Wouldn’t you agree?

My family always uses puff pastry but not once have they used it to make dessert. Usually it is used for savory reasons.  So as you can guess a shock of delight came on my parents face when they tried these Apple Turnovers. This quick and easy crowd pleaser definitely got my family’s approval.  I am sure you will love it just as much!  Give it a try and please share your creations by using hashtag #figsontop
