Apple Cinnamon Turnovers, Shazzie Style

    35 minutes

    Quite a quick dessert using frozen puff pastry and canned pie apples. This has a sugar glaze to add a bit of sweetness to the pastry, and is filled to overflowing with apple and whipped cream.

    1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Line baking trays with baking paper.

    3. Cut four circles out of each sheet of pastry. Fold each circle in half and place on tray. Brush with the glaze and sprinkle with extra sugar. Place in oven and cook until golden brown. Cool completely.
    4. While the pastry cools, blitz or mash apple with the cinnamon and sugar. Whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla.

    If you don't like apple, replace it with a tablespoon of Nutella.

    Recipe easy and the sugar glaze puts that bakery flavour to the turnover. I used locally grown apples making turnovers extra special. Extra cases stay crisp, wrapped at room temp for 2 nights of desert! Will use again.  -  03 Jul 2017
