These apple and cinnamon turnovers were absolutely delicious, really easy to make and as an added bonus contain no refined sugar at all. I was particularly pleased that my fruit-phobic four-year-old tucked into these therefore getting some fruity goodness without the unfortunate addition of a load of sugar.
Ingredients (makes four large, or eight small turnovers)
Four large apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
375g puff pastry
1 egg, beaten
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Cover a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
Put the apples, honey and cinnamon into a saucepan, stir and gently heat through until the apples are starting to soften. Add 1 tbsp water if the mixture starts to stick.
You can use the mixture as it is, or mash it together (I did the latter).
Roll out your puff pastry into a large rectangle, or if you’re lazy buy the ready rolled variety). Cut into four or eight smaller rectangles, depending on whether you would like to make large or small turnovers.
Put a few spoonfuls of apple mixture into the centre of each rectangle, being careful not to overfill. Press the edges together and lightly brush with beaten egg.
Place on the baking tray and bake for around 15 minutes in the centre of the oven until golden brown.
