Apple Turnovers

Recipe by Sara 76

My 8 year old is learning to cook, and he made these for us this morning. He did a great job, they were delicious! The recipe comes from the Woman's Day cookbook, The ABC Of Kids Cooking.

Oh my goodness. These are amazing little parcels. Very easy to make and turned out like something you'd find in a pastry shop. I omitted the raisins, and sprinkled the top with coarse sugar after brushing with the egg. DH ran out to the store for vanilla ice cream. Guess what's for dessert? :) Sara, please thank your Son for us. Made for the Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #32

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook apple, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes until tender. Stir in maple syrup, sugar, and cinnamon. Cook, stirring, for 4-5 minutes until liquid boils and thickens.
  2. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Stir in sultanas. Set aside for 15 minutes to cool, then chill until mixture is cold. Preheat oven to hot, 200°C Cut each pastry sheet into 4 even sized squares.
  3. Spoon 2 tablespoons of apple mixture onto one half of each pastry square. Brush edges with a little egg. Fold pastry over filling to form a triangle, pressing edges to seal. Brush with remaining egg. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Dust with icing sugar and serve with icecream.
