Apple Cinnamon Turnovers

Apple Cinnamon Turnovers

This year has been an amazing apple season, my parent’s trees are loaded with apples. I have been frequently taking apples home with me whenever I visit & have been eating a lot of apples with peanut butter. However I skipped the apples & peanut butter to make these apple cinnamon turnovers yesterday. The secret ingredient is the cinnamon cream cheese filling/frosting, it is the same frosting I used for my pumpkin bars except you only need half of the amount.

The turnovers are so good, they don’t even need the extra frosting but I say go for it. The frosting melts over the warm turnovers & they taste like something you would get from the store except better.

Apple Cinnamon Turnovers made with a Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting.
Serves: 8 turnovers
  • 2 thawed sheets of puff pastry, 1 box has two sheets
  • 3 apples, any variety
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup cinnamon cream cheese frosting (plus additional frosting to top them with)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • ¼ package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ stick butter, softened
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1½ tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • Just use a mixer on low to whip together all the ingredients.
  1. Pre heat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Wash, peel & dice the apples.
  3. Place them in a saucepan with water, sugar & cinnamon.
  4. Cook for 5-10 minutes over a low heat until the apples are soft.
  5. Remove from heat & stir in the cream cheese frosting.
  6. Take out your puff pastry sheets & cut each one into 4 equal squares.
  7. Place equal spoonfuls of the apple mixture into the middle of each square.
  8. Fold over into triangles & seal the edges with the end of a fork.
  9. Brush the outsides with the beaten egg.
  10. Poke holes in each turnover & place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  11. If you don't have parchment paper, use aluminum foil sprayed lightly with cooking spray to prevent them from sticking.
  12. Bake for about 20 minutes, I would advise checking your turnovers after 15 minutes. Mine were perfect after exactly 17 minutes.
  13. Frost turnovers with additional cinnamon cream cheese frosting & enjoy.
Tip - frozen puff pastry can be put in the fridge a day before to thaw. If it is too soft, it can be difficult to work with so put it back in the freezer if it's too soft.

Apple Cinnamon Turnover

So light, so flaky & delicious. I might now be in love with puff pastry, I could eat all eight of them by myself but luckily I have company to help me eat these sweet treats. Don’t be intimidated to make your own turnovers – while they may look fancy, they are so simple to make. You can wow house guests or coworkers by whipping up a batch of these for breakfast or dessert.
