This recipe is based on an old recipe from my 1941 cookbook. The original recipe didn't give any measurements on the ingredients, but these are pretty close to the measurements that I use. If you need to make more for a larger family or for company, you can easily double this recipe. They are so delicious and they made my kitchen smell awesome! I hope you'll give this vintage recipe a try.

How to Make Apple Turnovers - Vintage Recipe

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Thaw frozen puff pastry according to package directions and set aside.
  2. Peel and coarsely chop apples and place in a bowl. Add spices, lemon juice, flour and thoroughly mix with hands or a spatula.
  3. Lightly flour a sheet of waxed paper. Lay the puff pastry on the paper and gently unfold. Cut into four squares. In a mixing cup or small bowl, add egg and water. Combine with a fork until well mixed and slightly foamy and set aside.
  4. Spoon apples into one side of pastry squares, leaving a little room at the edge. Dot with butter pats. Fold over to form a triangular shape. Brush edges with egg wash to seal. Repeat with the three remaining squares.
  5. Gently place turnovers onto the prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with egg wash and sprinkle with raw sugar. Make some holes in the top using a fork or small knife to let steam escape.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven. Can be served warm or room temperature.
