Apple turnovers

Use those delicious fall apples in this scrumptious apple dessert (it's also great for breakfast!).

Salted Caramel


1 cup white sugar

¼ cup water

6 tbsp butter, cut into cubes

½ cup heavy cream 

Pinch salt 


Add the sugar and water to a saucepan, place on medium heat and cook until it dissolves into a clear liquid, about 4-5 minutes.

Keep stirring so it doesn't clump and wait until it starts to turn a golden brown color. Do not wait until it is dark brown or it will taste burnt.

Add in the butter and whisk until melted - be careful, it will bubble and foam. 

Take off the heat and whisk in your cream until all incorporated.

Add a pinch of salt and you have salted caramel!

Apple turnovers 


1 sheet puff pastry 

4 apples

1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

3 tbsp sugar 

1 egg 


Defrost your puff pastry and preheat the oven according to the puff pastry instructions - normally 375 F.

Peel and core the apples. Slice them into nice thin slices .

Take your sugar and pumpkin spice in a bowl and mix them.

Cut your puff pastry sheet into a 3x3 grid, it should look like a tic tac toe board. 

Add a handful of apple slices in the middle of each square and top with a pinch of seasoned sugar.

Fold the four corners onto the middle, creating a little parcel

Beat your egg and brush each pastry with the egg wash.

Place in the oven for the period of time on the puff pastry packaging, normally 15 minutes.

It should come out a nice golden brown. 

Let cool.

Drizzle caramel sauce overtop.
