Easy Healthy Homemade Apple Turnovers {Fall Recipes}

Fall is upon us and that means comfort food! Warm, tasty fall recipes are on my menu plan each week. We love sweet and savory apple and pumpkin recipes in the fall. How about you? Today I'm sharing with you a tasty recipe from WearEver for a healthier version of the fried Apple Turnover.

Ingredients:

·         2 tablespoons lemon juice
·         1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
·         4 cups water
·         1 tablespoon cornstarch
·         4 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced
·         1 tablespoon water
·         2 tablespoons unsalted butter
·         1 (17.25 ounce) package frozen puff
·         1 cup brown sugar, packed
·         Pastry sheets, thawed
       
Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Use two large ungreased WearEver Cookie Sheets.
  2. Combine the lemon and 4 cups water in a large bowl. Place the sliced apples in the water to keep them from browning.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Drain water from apples, and place them into the hot skillet. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes. Add brown sugar, and cinnamon, and cook, stirring, for 2 more minutes. Stir together cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Pour into the skillet, and mix well. Cook for another minute, or until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat to cool slightly.
  4. Unfold puff pastry sheets, and repair any cracks by pressing them back together. Trim each sheet into a square. Then cut each larger square into 4 smaller squares. Spoon apples onto the center of each square. Fold over from corner to corner into a triangle shape, and press edges together to seal. Place turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving about 1-inch between them.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until turnovers are puffed and lightly browned.

Soon I will be doing a lot of holiday baking. How about you? I will be trying out the NEW WearEver Pure Living Bakeware collection which has a ceramic coated surface, free of PFOA, PTFE, and cadmium - a safe, eco-friendly alternative to nonstick. This bakeware is durable and easy-to-use, dishwasher safe, scratch resistant, stain resistant and high temperature resistant, as well as suitable for use with metal utensils. I can't wait to try it out and see how it holds up with all my baking.

This is not a sponsored post but soon I will be reviewing the bakeware. Stay tuned.
