Best Apple Turnover Recipe

This is the best apple turnover recipe is my husband favorite. It never misses that as soon as the snow starts flying(if he even waits that long!) that he’ll ask me when I’m going to make pastry so that we have turnovers again. Even if he knows that I don’t have any pastry made, he still asks for them!

Best Apple Turnover

Once you have pastry made(or store bought, although store bought can never beat homemade in my opinion, even if it’s not as puffy, I would rather have a real pastry than a purchased puff pastry that is full of air).

Back to the turnovers… this is a super simple recipe to make once you have the puff pastry.


  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1 apple
  • 2 tsp flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Take out your puff pastry and thaw.
  2. Peel, core and dice apples into small pieces. Mix with flour, sugar, nutmeg and first amount of cinnamon.
  3. Cut pastry into 6 equal pieces. Wet the edges with a beaten egg and add 1 tbsp apple to each square. Close and seal edges by crimping with a fork.
  4. Add the second amount of cinnamon to the remaining egg, and brush over turnovers. Sprinkle with raw sugar and bake for 20-25 minutes.
