National Apple Turnover Day

National Apple Turnover Day

The best thing about turnovers is the delicious, fruit-filled cups of flavor coated in a sugary glaze. It’s like a small, personal-sized pie. Our favorite pie is the apple. National Apple Turnover Day is dedicated to making sure everyone gets their little slice of the apple pie in the form a whole turnover.

Turnovers can be described as a simple confection. You can make a turnover with any number of ingredients, but dessert turnovers are our favorite. A flaky crust is the hallmark of a good pie, but turnovers are a different kind of flaky.

National Apple Turnover Day can be celebrated by making your own apple turnovers. We have a recipe to help you do just that! It’s easy to learn, so give it a try! You never know what type of confections (yes, that’s a term, we use it) you’ll create.

You will need to peel, coring and slice the apples. Granny Smiths are great for their tartness. Combine the water, lemon juice, and apple slices in bowl. Make sure the apples are well covered. Next, melt the butter in a large skillet. Drain the apples and place them in the skillet. Stir for 2 minutes. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and continue to stir for 2 more minutes. You will need to add 1T water and cornstarch to the skillet. Stir the sauce until it thickens and cover the apples with it.

Pre-heat your oven to 400°F. While you are laying out the pastry sheets, cut each one into four equal pieces. Place a tablespoonful of apples in each square. Fold the pastry over to seal it. Place them about an inch apart on a baking sheet.

Mix the confectioners’ sugar with the vanilla and milk while they are baking. Once they have finished baking for 25 minutes, drizzle the glaze over the apple turnovers. Enjoy!
