Dutch-style apple turnovers (appelflappen)
If you have frozen puff pastry, you don't need to ask yourself what to do with leftover fruit. You can create a treat for any occasion with this combination, from homey turnovers for a simple brunch to an elegant company-worthy tart.
- 1 apple
- 4 squares of puff pastry about 3 inches per side
- 2 T sugar plus 2 t for sprinkling
- pinch cinnamon
Set the puff pastry to thaw on a sheet of baking paper.
Peel and core the apple, dice it into 1/2 inch squares.
Toss the apples with the sugar and a pinch of cinnamon.
Spoon about 1 T of diced apples into the center of each square of puff pastry.
Moisten your fingertip with water and rub the bottom and right edges of the puff pastry square with water. Fold the square diagonally from top left to bottom right and press the sides together to form a triangular packet.
Sprinkle the tops of the turnovers with sugar.
Bake 15 minutes at 400F.
Especially delicious when served warm.
