Super Easy Apple Turnover Recipe

There’s nothing better than a warm apple turnover. Well, you can make it better by adding a little cinnamon, some pecans, and drizzling them with salted caramel sauce. YUMMY!

Plus, they’re super easy to make! So easy that a two year old could do it. In fact, he did! Scroll down to watch the video and see how we got on.

Not Your Average Apple Turnovers – Top Tips

As I said, it’s a pretty foolproof recipe, but here’s a few tips to make sure you get the best possible apple turnovers:

  • The pecans are completely optional, but they do add a lovely texture to the filling.
  • You can, of course, make your own puff pastry (recipe here) – but, it is a right faff, and it probably won’t be as good as shop bought.

Apple Turnover Recipe

Ingredients for easy apple turnovers

  • 2 apples, peeled and finely diced (any variety)
  • 1tsp cornflour
  • 40g chopped pecans
  • 2tsp vanilla extract
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • One pack of puff pastry
  • One egg
  • Salted Caramel


  1. Mix together the apples, cornflour, pecans, vanilla extract, cinnamon and granulated sugar. Heat over a medium heat, stirring constantly for five minutes. Reduce to a simmer for five minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely.
  2. Cut the pastry block into two pieces, roll each one out and cut into four even squares (giving you eight squares in total)
  3. Evenly spoon the filling onto the middle of each square.
  4. Fold each one in half diagonally.
  5. Use the back of a fork to crimp the two halves together and trim any excess.
  6. Mix the egg together and brush each one of the turnovers with the egg wash.
  7. Carefully, make two or three small holes in the top of each one to allow steam to escape.
  8. Bake each tray (separately) for 20 minutes in an oven which has been preheated to 200°C (gas mark 6).
  9. Allow to cool slightly and drizzle caramel sauce over them.

Boom – Lovely pockets of spiced apples wrapped in pastry and covered in caramel sauce. What more could you want?
