Easy Caramel Apple Puff Pastry Turnover Recipe

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


  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Combine apples, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, water, and butter in a Dutch oven and bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer
  3. Make a well in the center of liquid and whisk in cornstarch until dissolved
  4. Continue to cook until softened to fork tender, but not mushy, set aside to cool slightly
  5. Roll out pastry dough to 2 even squares and cut each piece into 4 equal squares
  6. 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
  7. Fold each square into a triangle
  8. Use a pastry brush to lightly coat the top of each triangle with the egg
  9. Use a fork to lightly press the edges together
  10. Evenly sprinkle each turnover with the remaining teaspoon of sugar
  11. Bake for 15 - 17 minutes or until golden brown
  12. Cool on a wire rack and serve warm or at room temperature
  13. Drizzle with remaining caramel sauce right before serving
