Fried Apple Turnovers, puff pastry filled with stove-top homemade fried apples!
Who doesn’t love turnovers? That crispy, buttery puff pastry filled with exciting yummy flavors.
Today I have wrapped fried apples in puff pastry, then baked them to golden brown perfection. I suggest topping them off with simple powdered sugar, caramel sauce, ice cream or whipped cream!
See those apples peeking out? Yum!
These fried apples are similar to those you can find at a certain southern-style restaurant chain… wink wink. You know the one I’m talking about!
- 2 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or extract)
- 2 sheets puff pastry
- 1 egg, lightly beaten with a splash of water
- In a large skillet over medium heat, add the butter and brown sugar. Stir to combine and the sugar dissolves. Add the cinnamon and stir to combine. Add the apples, and coat in the butter mixture. Cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the apples are tender. Take off the heat and add in the vanilla, set aside to cool.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pierce puff pastry sheets all over with a fork. Cut into 4ths. Add a small amount of the filling into the center of each square. Fold it over to form a triangle. Using a fork, poke a few holes on the top and use the fork to seal the edges together. (see tutorial video)
- Brush with the egg mixture, bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.
