This recipe came from a silly little murder mystery book but it sounded good....and tastes great!


  • 1 - 17.5 oz package of frozen puff pastry sheets
  • 4 1/2 cups apples (about 4, I used Gala and Fuji), peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 cup craisins (dried cranberries)
  • 1 TB lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cardamon (if you don't have cardamon, don't can leave it out.)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 TB water
  • Sugar


  • Preheat your oven to 400' F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Thaw the puff pastry sheets according to the instructions on the box.
  • Meanwhile, prepare your apples. In a mixing bowl, combine the apples, craisins and drizzle the lemon juice over them. Toss to thoroughly coat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the 1/3 cup sugar, flour, spices and salt. Add to the apple mixture and toss to coat.
  • When your pastry is ready, on a lightly floured surface, roll one of the pastry sheets into a 12" x 12" square (you can put the other sheet in the fridge for now). Cut vertically and horizontally to create 4 equal squares (6"x6")
  • Now to prep the assembly line. In a small bowl or cup, beat the egg and water to make your egg wash. Have a slotted spoon, fork and sharp knife handy as well as a small bowl of sugar for sprinkling.
  • With a pastry brush, dampen the edges of a square with the egg wash.
  • With a slotted spoon, scoop about 1/4 cup of filling onto the center of the square.
  • Pull one corner over the filling to the opposite corner to create a triangle.
  • Press the edges together to seal. Using the fork, press along the edges to make it pretty (and to make a better seal).
  • Make 2 slits in the top with your knife to ventilate
  • Transfer to your prepared cookie sheet and repeat with the remaining 3 squares.
  • When all four squares are ready and on the cookie sheet, brush the tops with some egg wash. Sprinkle with some sugar
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • While those are baking, prepare the second pastry sheet into 4 more apple turnovers.
  • Allow the turnovers to cool for 5 minutes and enjoy while warm
