Apples are good for you, have natural sugar and, combined with some raisins (I like the golden ones), a little sugar, cinnamon and a blob of butter to keep your cheeks rosy – you have the filling for these apple turnovers. Made them yesterday for my daughter Gigi and mom. The easy part is ready-made pie crusts or, for a fancy “puff,” you can use puff-pastry sheets that you find in the freezer section.

So for each “turnover” you need one apple peeled and cored and cut up –

… if you have large apples, obviously you would use fewer.

For each apple, figure on 1 tsp of additional sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon.

I cut the apples into pieces, …

Cover and stir. Then add a cup of raisins per 4 apples. When apples are soft, but not mush, spoon the appropriate amount in your already quartered crust …

Keep in mind they still may run, so use a tray with a lip, and parchment paper is your friend at clean up time! Best liner for baking ever!

Brush the tops with melted butter or a whisked egg and bake in a hot oven 350 degrees for about 20 mins – until the crust is cooked:

Joey’s apple turnover – delicious AND SO EASY TO MAKE!

Let them cook for a minute and enjoy! Inexpensive to make – and so tasty!

And … if you want that pastry shop look, after you glaze them with the egg wash, sprinkle some sugar on them before baking.

Enjoy!
