I threw this together with what I had in the pantry. I was craving an apple turnover and had some leftover apples so I decided I'd make my own version of one of my favourite desserts.

Beautiful and very simple recipe! I found the apple turnovers really big though so next time will probably try and make 4 out of each sheet of pastry. I also had quite a bit of apple mixture left over but I just froze that for next time. - 22 May 2011
