Easy Caramel Apple Puff Pastry Turnover Recipe
I have to be honest here. I really really really wish I was still at the beach. I’m sure you can totally get on board with that. Our last trip to Hilton Head for the long Labor Day weekend was one of the most relaxing weekends I’ve had in at least two years.
Granted, the Hilton Head trip was the second beach vacation we had this year and I’m grateful for that. This one was just Chris and me – trust me when I say it was much quieter than the one with most of my entire family and a whole lot of kids.
But sigh… Here we are. Back at work and well on our way through September. And that means apples. I know I’m late to the apple party, but my head is still eating peaches, grilling, and drinking beer on the beach. I’m trying to catch up so how about we try an Easy Slow Cooker Apple Sauce or some Salted Caramel Apples and come on ride this train.
We could also talk about some Easy Caramel Apple Puff Pastry Turnovers if you’d like. Because who in their right mind doesn’t love some caramel apples or puff pastry or just make you some caramel apples and stuff them right into a puff pastry, seal all that deliciousness up in here, and bake it in the oven. Y’all will absolutely want to be sure to save some of that caramel cinnamon buttery cooking sauce to
drown drizzle over the top of all that warm and cozy apple stuffed pastry because it just wouldn’t be the same with out it. Seriously, who doesn’t love some caramel-y goodness on the inside and the outside of a caramel apple turnover?
You better get started. It’s going to be breakfast soon!
Easy Caramel Apple Puff Pastry Turnover Recipe
- 5 small to medium apples peeled, cored, and roughly chopped into about 1/4 inch pieces - I used gala and granny smith
- 1/3 cup sugar plus 1 teaspoon to sprinkle before baking
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of nutmeg
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 puff pastry sheets 1 17.3 box, thawed
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 400
Combine apples, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, water, and butter in a Dutch oven and bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer
Make a well in the center of liquid and whisk in cornstarch until dissolved
Continue to cook until softened to fork tender, but not mushy, set aside to cool slightly
Roll out pastry dough to 2 even squares and cut each piece into 4 equal squares
Transfer 2 tablespoons of the apple mixture onto each pastry square - bring very little of the liquid to prevent leaking and soggy dough and reserve the remaining liquid for a finishing drizzle
Fold each square into a triangle
Use a pastry brush to lightly coat the top of each triangle with the egg
Use a fork to lightly press the edges together
Evenly sprinkle each turnover with the remaining teaspoon of sugar
Bake for 15 - 17 minutes or until golden brown
Cool on a wire rack and serve warm or at room temperature
Drizzle with remaining caramel sauce right before serving

I mean puff pastry, caramel and apples? YAAAHHSS! I’ll take an extra gallon of drizzle on mine please! <3 Cheers, sweets! xoxo

I wish I was at the beach too! But since that just won’t happen any time soon I will have to make myself happy with these turnovers. It’s apple season and add a little caramel and you have an instant winner! These are not only cute, but I’ll bet they are soooooo delicious too!
Okay – first up – I love your process shots! Stunning! And these turnovers are everything that I’m craving these days!! I’m definitely ready for fall!

I wish I was at the beach too. We have beach weather here at the moment, but I am not on the beach 🙁
I am so waiting for autumn weather to enjoy recipes like this. I am all about the apples during autumn.
Love this recipe so much! Your photography is beautiful too♥
I had family that lived on Hilton Head for so many years and I always loved going to visit!
I also sooo love apple season! These puff pastry turnovers sound delicious!

You had me at puff pastry 😉 Yummy! Turnovers are the best and I’d eat these babies for breakfast with a big pot of strong coffee. Apples make it healthy too so I could eat the whole batch of them in one sitting. Yay to me and FYI I’m going along on your next beach trip 🙂

These turnovers look heavenly!! They are so golden and perfect – I love the glistening sugar topping 🙂 The end of summer can’t be so bad if you have lots of these on hand 😉
I peeled and cut the apples last night, and mixed then with the spices including sugar and put them all in the fridge over night… This morning i made these amazing things… And omg… They’re perfect!!!
