Apple turnover

I've written before about our amazing apple harvest. It hasn't been picked in one go this year as it is easier to manage in bits but the photo, from a previous year, shows far, far fewer apples than this year.
We are storing many apples both in the freezer, bottled (canned) and as jam.

 It seems silly not to use them now as well. One favourite recipe is apple turnover. It is amazingly quick and can be made one day and reheated the next. I often make it on Saturday for eating on Sunday.
3-4 Bramleys depending on size
500g puff pastry (I'm lazy and tend to buy a block)
granulated sugar
sultanas (optional)
milk to glaze

Heat oven to 200C/400F
Roll the pastry to a rectangle shape very approximately 30cmx 20cm (12"x8").
Peel, core and slice the apples.
Layer apples on one half (lengthwise) of the pastry.
Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and sultanas to taste.
Fold over uncovered pastry half.
Place on baking tray.
Glaze with milk.
Cook for 23-30 minutes until pastry is golden brown.

Serve with custard, ice cream or yogurt.

Leftovers, if any, can be served cold or reheated.

  1. I am saving this recipe! We have sadly missed most apple-picking here this year due to my lack of *oomph* from mono. Ugh. But so glad to see and watch the beauty of the others' enjoying them!
