Easy Apple Turnovers

4.8 (2 reviews)

3 Granny Smith apples
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. fresh ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. shortening
1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
6 6-inch-square frozen puff pastry pieces, thawed

•Preheat the oven to 375°F.
•Peel and dice the apples.
•Cook all the ingredients, except the puff pastry, in a saucepan over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, then purée 1/2 the batch. Mix the purée with the remaining half and let cool completely.
•Lay the puff pastry squares out on a work surface. In the center of each square, place 2 tablespoonfuls of the apple filling. Brush the edges of each pastry square with water and fold in half to create a triangle. Carefully press the edges together with your fingertips.
•Transfer each turnover to a cookie sheet and refrigerate until all have been assembled. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
