Ever just feel like a flaky pastry dessert? :)
This was a simple recipe that turned out amazing (with the exception of one of the sheets of puff pastry!) But, I still was impressed.
I chose apple turnovers but any type of filling would be tasty!
-4-5 apples--peeled, cored & sliced
-2 Tbsp. butter
-1 c. brown sugar
-1 tsp. cinnamon
-1 Tbsp. cornstarch
-1 Tbsp. water
-1 pack puff pastry, thawed
1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat and place sliced apples in skillet.
Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and cook, stirring for 2 more minutes.
2. Stir together the cornstarch and water and pour into the skillet and mix well. Cook almost another minute or until the sauce has thickened. Remove from heat to cool slightly.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unfold the puff pastry and repair any cracks by pressing back together. Trim each sheet into a square and then cut each larger square into 4 smaller squares.
Spoon apples onto the center of each square. Fold over from corner to corner into a triangular shape, and press edges together to seal.
Place turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between them.
4. Bake for 25 minutes, until puffed and lightly browned. Eat warm or leave to cool :)
