Apple Turnovers

You remember that Apple Pie Filling recipe I shared with you guys last week? Well, this is a scrumptious recipe that I used that filling in. 

These were heavenly and could not be an easier recipe to make for a weeknight treat, for a crowd, or to have on your holiday dinner table. 

While these turnovers are rather large, you could totally cut up the pastry dough and make little mini-sized turnovers.

Then cut each half into thirds to make six pieces total.

In a separate bowl, combine some granulated sugar and cinnamon. Stir to combine and set aside.

Get your pre-made Apple Pie Filling ready by letting it sit on the counter for a few minutes.

Spoon about a tablespoon of the apple pie filling into the corner of each square.

Sprinkle a little bit of the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of the pie filling.

Fold the pastry diagonally from one corner to the other in a triangle shape, enclosing the filling inside.

Pinch the edges to seal and push out any air that may be in the middle.

Place the pastry on a baking sheet either lined with a piece of parchment or a silicone baking mat.

Continue with the remaining dough and/or filling.

In a small bowl, whisk together an egg and a tablespoon of water to create an egg wash.

Brush the tops of each turnover with the egg wash.

Now, get some coarse sugar. You could either use cane sugar, but since I do not use it often, I just bought some of these single-serving Sugar in the Raw packs.

Sprinkle the coarse sugar on the top of the turnovers.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until pastries are golden brown.

Look how beautiful these are!

Cool completely and store in an airtight container on the counter for up to 3 days, if they last that long.
