  • Melt the butter in a medium skillet, add brown sugar and stir until thoroughly combined.
  • Add apples, apple juice and raisins, cook over medium heat until apples are softened but still slightly crisp.
  • Mix the arrowroot starch or cornstarch with a small amount of water add to the cooked apples, stir in chopped pecans and cinnamon.
  • Continue to cook until mixture is thickened and most of liquid has been absorbed.
  • Remove from heat, place in a small bowl and place in refrigerator and allow to cool for 30 minutes to 1 hour before filling pastry.
  • Meanwhile, lay the sheet of pastry out on counter and allow to thaw for 40 minutes.
  • On a lightly floured board, lightly roll out sheet of puff pastry into a square, cut in fourths; beat the egg white with 1 tablespoon water, set aside.
  • Divide the cooled apple mixture evenly among the 4 squares of pastry, leaving the edges free for crimping.
  • Brush the edges of the pastry with the beaten egg white and gently fold the pastry over the apples forming a triangle; with the floured tines of a fork, thoroughly crimp and seal the edges together.
  • Place on a ungreased cookie sheet, with a sharp knife, make 2 to 3 small slits in top of turnovers to allow steam to escape.
  • Place in 375 degree preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned and puffed.
  • Mix together the powdered sugar, maple syrup and vanilla; immediately upon removing the turnovers from the oven, brush the tops with the glaze.
  • If not serving immediately, transfer the turnovers to a cooling rack and allow to cool before wrapping for storage.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.
