Apple Turnovers

For this recipe you can also double the apple mixture and use to extra to make applesauce

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 4 cups water

  • 5 apples - cored, peeled and sliced thin

  • 1/2 stick butter

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

  • 1 tbsp water

  • 1 box thawed puff pastry

    1. Combine the lemon and 4 cups water in a large bowl. Place the sliced apples in the water to keep them from browning.
    2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Drain water from apples, and place them into the hot skillet. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes. Add brown sugar, and cinnamon, and cook, stirring, for 2 more minutes. Stir together cornstarch and 1 tbsp water. Pour into the skillet, and mix well. Cook for another minute, or until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat to cool slightly.
    3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
    4. Unfold puff pastry sheets, and repair any cracks by pressing them back together. Trim each sheet into a square. Then cut each larger square into 4 smaller squares. Spoon apples onto the center of each squares. Fold over from corner to corner into a triangle shape, and press edges together to seal. Place turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between them.
    5. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until turnovers are puffed and lightly browned.
