Recipe by ImPat
READY IN: 30mins




  • Preheat oven to 200 degree Celsius or 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Peel, core and small dice apples.
  • Place apples, cloves, cinnamon and lemon juice in a medium saucepan and cook on a medium heat until just tender (DO NOT LET GO TO MUSHY STAGE) - about 3 minutes.
  • Remove cloves.
  • Divide each pastry sheet into 4 squares.
  • Place a heaping tablespoon of apple on the diagonal of the pastry square.
  • Pull over to form a triangle and seal using a fork, gently pushing in to the edge to seal, using edge of knife put 1 or 2 small slits into the pastry (to let steam escape).
  • Continue until all 12 turnovers are filled and sealed.
  • Brush top of turnovers with whisked egg (you will only use a small amount of the egg) and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Place on a cookie/baking tray covered with baking paper/parchment paper (I get 6 to a tray).
  • Put in oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Serve warm with custard, cream and or ice cream.
  • With just a sprinkle of icing sugar (confectioners sugar).
  • I have made up the apple mix and only made 6 turnovers and served the extra apple with them with custard.
