Today I am celebrating. Celebrating 200 recipes up and running!!! Funny that I never set out to write a food blog, yet here I am 5 months later and enjoying every minute of it. Just want to thank you all for your support and kind words over these past months. It really does go a long way in keeping me inspired to continue cooking and writing. So, thank you everyone!!!
In celebration of 200 recipes, I just made these super easy and delicious turnovers. Because I feel not all tasty treats have to be labour intensive and time consuming. Sometimes, we want something simple and delicious. This just might be the thing for you today if that is what your are aiming for. It was a friend that reminded me of quick meals earlier this morning. This may not be a meal, but it is relatively quick and can be served with breakfast, brunch or even as a dessert. You could also make a glaze and pour over, but I just had them plain today.
Does anyone remember the apple turnovers you buy in a pop can in the freezer section? Well these are like those, but better! I know tooting my own horn, but these are seriously delicious. Try to eat just one.
These turnovers are a great example of food that you can make ahead and freeze. All you have to do it defrost and reheat in the oven quickly to get that out of the oven freshness. Makes for a great breakfast, yes breakfast! Or mid morning snack, after school treat or whatever. They are yummy.
Easy Apple and Cinnamon Turnovers
Makes 8 / Prep time: 10 minutes / Cook time: 30 minutes
1 Sheet of puff pastry
4 Apples, peeled, cored and diced small
2 Tablespoons of butter
2 Tablespoons of brown sugar
1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 Cup/60 ml of water
1-2 Tablespoons of white sugar, for sprinkling
1 Egg, for brushing the pastry
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and grease a large baking tray. Cut the pastry into 8 squares and arrange them on your baking tray.
In a large skillet set over medium to high heat, add the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir until it starts to bubble and toss in the apples. Stir to coat all the apples and add the water. Reduce heat to low-medium, cover and leave to cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Apples should be soft and a nice golden brown colour. Remove from heat. Place a tablespoon of the apple mixture in the centre of each pastry square. Fold each pastry square over into a triangle and use your fingers to press the sides together. Brush the pastry with the egg, make slits in the top of the pastry and sprinkle with a little bit of sugar. Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until puffed and golden. Delicious straight out of the oven.
