Apple Turnovers

There is nothing like a beautiful apple turnover to satisfy the sweet tooth in anyone. This recipe is simple, fun and tastes great!

Serves 4


  • 1 recipe pastry dough
  • 4 apples, peeled and sliced thin
  • ½ cup granulated sugar/caster sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, softened


  1. Roll out the pastry (pie) dough. Cut into rounds about the size of a large saucer.
  2. On ½ of the round, arrange ¼ of the thinly-sliced apples.
  3. Mix together the sugar, salt and cinnamon. Liberally sprinkle each pastry round of apples with the mixture. (Make more if needed)
  4. Dot each with butter.
  5. Moisten the rim of the pastry with water. Fold over uncovered half of the pastry and press the edges together with a fork. Prick the top. Spray the pastry top with a spritz of water, or you can use an egg wash. Sprinkle sanding sugar on top of the pastry.
  6. Bake in a 350°F/180°C/Gas Mark 4 oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until the apples are tender.
