    Sharlene~W's Note:

    Just got The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook and this is the first recipe I tried from it. So quick and easy! Don't be tempted to overfill the turnovers like I did--it will leak out the sides. Very yummy anyway.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400°F.
    2. 2
      Pulse the applies, 1/2 cup of the sugar, the lemon juice, and salt in a food processor until the apples are coarsely chopped, about 5 pulses. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes, then drain, reserving any accumulated juice.
    3. 3
      Chef note: The 2nd time I made this, I mixed a tablespoon of flour with the sugar before I tossed the apples in it. I also mixed the applesauce right in with the apples. I think the flour helped keep it from being quite so runny--it was more like pie filling when it was cooked.
    4. 4
      Unfold one sheet of puff pastry on lightly floured counter and roll into a 10-inch square. Cut into 4 5-inch squares. Mound 1 tablespoon applesauce and 1 tablespoon of the apple mixture in the center of each square.
    5. 5
      Brush the edges of each square with juice drained off the apples and fold into triangles. Crump the edges together using a fork to seal. Lay the turnovers on a wire rack and freeze for 15 minutes. Repeat with remaining sheet of pastry and remaining applesauce and apple filling.
    6. 6
      Toss the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with the cinnamon. Remove the rack from the freezer, brush the turnovers with the reserved apple juice, then sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar.
    7. 7
      Lay the turnovers on two parchment-lined baking sheets and bake until well browned, 20 to 26 minutes, rotating and switching the baking sheets halfway through baking. Transfer the turnovers to a wire rack and let cool slightly before serving.
