Sugar and Spice Apple Turnovers
Store-bought puff pastry makes great turnovers if the dough is rolled thin, kept cold, and sealed tightly.
Why This Recipe Works
We developed our Sugar and Spice Apple Turnovers recipe to take only minutes to prepare by using frozen puff pastry dough. Allowing the dough to thaw overnight in the refrigerator helps avoid cracking. Blending applesauce and Granny Smith apples yields a quick filling with complex apple flavor. Processing the apples with sugar and draining them removes excess liquid that would make the apple turnovers soggy. Before baking, we brushed the apple turnovers with the sticky juice shed by the apples, then sprinkled them with the spice-sugar blend to give their tops a sweet crunch.
