  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 Granny Smith apples (peeled, cored, and diced)
  • 1 (17 1/2 ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tsps milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Melt butter in a sauce pan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add brown sugar and water; bring to a boil. Reduce temperature, and simmer 5 minutes. Add in your diced apples, mix to coat, and set aside.
  2. Unfold puff pastry sheets. Trim each sheet into a square, and cut each larger square into 4 smaller squares. Spoon apples onto the center of each square. Fold over into a triangle shape, and press edges together to seal.
  3. Place turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between them and bake at 425°F for 13 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
  4. Combine powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla, stirring until smooth; drizzle glaze over warm turnovers.
