Easy apple turnovers with cinnamon
These easy apple turnovers with cinnamon are absolutely delicious, quick to make and as an added bonus contain no refined sugar at all.
- 4 large apples peeled, cored and chopped
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave syrup
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 375 g ready rolled puff pastry
- 2 tablespoons oat milk for glaze (or other vegan milk alternative)
For the apples
Put the prepared apples, a tablespoon of maple syrup and ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon into a saucepan.
Stir well and gently heat through over a low-medium heat until the apples are starting to soften. Add a spoonful of water if the mixture starts to stick.
Once cooked you can use the mixture as it is, or mash it together (I did the latter). Allow to cool (this is important or it'll melt your pastry)
For the turnovers
Unroll your puff pastry. 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 with your finger tips, or use a fork to make a pattern.
Prick a few holes in each pastry with a fork and use a pastry brush to lightly brush each turnover with plant-based milk.
Place on the baking tray and bake for around 15 minutes (small turnovers) or 25 minutes (larger turnovers) in the centre of the oven or until golden brown.
