  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 40 mins
  • Yield: 8 1x


  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice, and an additional 1/2 teaspoon for sprinkling on top of turnovers
  • 2 cups cored, peeled and chopped apples (about 2 medium apples – I used granny smith and red delicious
  • 1 (17.3-ounce) package puff pastry sheets, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water or milk


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  2. Whisk together sugar, flour and apple pie spice in a large bowl. Add chopped apples and toss to coat evenly. Set aside.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry sheets and cut each sheet into 4 even squares. Place puff pastry squares on the baking sheet.
  4. Spoon apple mixture (about 1/4 cup for each square) into the corner half of each square and fold to make a triangle. Press edges together, then press edges with a fork to crimp and seal.
  5. Brush the tops of each turnover with melted butter and sprinkle with additional apple pie spice.
  6. Bake for 16-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. While turnovers are baking, prepare the glaze by stirring together powdered sugar and water (or milk) until smooth.
  8. Drizzle glaze over turnovers.
