What’s the serving size?
What do I need?
3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced
1 tbsp brown sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
2 sheets ready rolled puff pastry
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp sugar
How do I make it?
Preheat oven to 200C.
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Combine apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice in a bowl, and mix well.
Cut each sheet of pastry into four squares.
Place some apple mixture into the centre of each square of pastry and fold diagonally to make triangles.
Crimp edges of the pastry with a fork and place turnovers on the baking tray leaving 5-centimetres between them to allow for the pastry to puff up during cooking.
Using a sharp knife cut a small slit in the top of each turnover to allow steam to escape. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and puffed.
