One Sweet Apple Recipe

While trying to avoid all things with dairy (this is any dairy items made from cow’s milk) I am constantly reworking recipes that I can make substitutions for (cow’s milk) dairy.
I was very excited to find out the ‘Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry’ has no dairy. And, of course, I needed to use this marvelous product in a recipe.
This sweet little ‘Cinnamon & Sugar Apple Turnover Recipe’ was just the thing.  Because there are times you need a ‘little sweet’ at the end of your day.

1 box Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry (thaw according to package directions)

2 apples (peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped)
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of apple sauce
  1. Heat oven to 400º
  2. In a food processor place the apples, lemon juice, and salt.  Pulse until the apples are chopped into pieces no large than 1/2 inch. Allow this mixture to sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Place this mixture in a fine-mesh strainer over a bowl.  Drain the mixture and reserve the juices.
  4. Take the drained mixture and transfer to a mixing bowl. Stir in the apple sauce.
  5. Place one sheet of puff pastry onto a lightly floured work surface.  Cut into 4 (5-inch) squares.
  6. Fill each square with 2 Tablespoons of the apple mixture. Brush the edges with reserved apple juice. Fold over pastry at the corner to form a triangle and crimp the edges with a fork.
  7. Repeat this same process with the 2nd sheet of puff pastry.
  8. Place prepared turnovers on a tray and place in freezer until firm.  About 15 minutes.
  9. Remove from freezer and place turnovers onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  Brush tops with reserved apple juice and sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar topping (recipe below).
  10. Bake in 400º oven for 20 to 25 minutes.  Rotating baking sheet halfway through the baking time.
  11. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
  12. After turnovers have cooled drizzle on the prepared glaze. (recipe below)
Cinnamon & Sugar Topping:
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
 Combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
1  cup confectioner’s sugar
2  to 3 Tablespoons milk (of your choice) or water
1 teaspoon vanilla
Put sugar in a bowl.  Slowly stir in the milk and vanilla to make a smooth, pourable glaze.  (You may need less or more milk/water depending on how thick you want your glaze.)
