Easy Apple Turnovers
- 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
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Use two large ungreased cookie sheets.
- Combine the lemon and 4 cups water in a large bowl. Place the sliced apples in the water to keep them from browning.
- 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.
- 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.
- Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until turnovers are puffed and lightly browned.
