This is a very easy breakfast or brunch treat, best served warm but just as yummy a day later.


3 Honey Crisp Apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbs cinnamon
2 tbs water
1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed and cut into four squares
egg wash (1 egg, beaten, plus 1 tbs water)

How I Made Them:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil.

In a saucepan, combine the apples, sugar, cinnamon, and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until apples are soft and sauce develops.

Assemble by spooning apple filling onto one half of each square.  Fold over to make a triangle.  You can seal the edges with water, or a little of the egg wash.  Brush each turnover lightly with egg wash.

Bake on the lined cookie sheet for 20-23 minutes or until puffy and golden.

How They Turned Out:

Delicious!  This makes four large turnovers, but you could make six or eight smaller ones.  You can add walnuts, dried cranberries or raisins, or other add-ons — though I like the simple apple-ness of these.
