Apple Turnover Recipe with Puff Pastry

How to Make the Best and Simple Apple Turnover Recipe for Dessert

Apples are among my favorite fruits, along with persimmons and strawberries. How I wish I could plant my own apple tree so I could have fresh apples when in season! There are so many things you can make with apples. You can make apple pie, apple cider, applesauce, and apple turnover recipe. Among my fave apple recipes to cook are apple pie and this apple turnover with puff pastry. It’s like having your own McDonald’s apple pie everyday!

Why You Need to Make this Apple Turnover Recipe

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. That’s because apples are among the most nutritious fruits. An apple is rich in nutrients such as calories, carbs, fiber, Vitamin C, potassium, and Vitamin K. For better health benefits, leave the skin on because that’s where the fiber is. Just make sure to wash them well before eating. What I do is to rinse, rub with rock salt, then rinse well. Rock salt has antibacterial properties and also helps scrub the dirt.

Apples are also good for weight loss due to its high fiber content. They also help lower the risk of heart disease because they contain polyphenols which are natural antioxidants. Among the polyphenols are the flavonoid called epicatechin, which helps in lowering blood pressure.

Other benefits of apples are:

  • lessens the risk of diabetes
  • promotes good gut bacteria
  • may help prevent cancer
  • has properties that help fight asthma
  • good for bone health
  • helps protect the stomach lining from NSAIDs brought about by painkillers
  • helps prevent mental decline


Now that you know about the benefits of apples, let’s start making this apple turnover recipe. For this recipe, I used regular puff pastry as it’s easier to make them rather than making your own dough. This apple turnover with puff pastry is a healthy dessert you can make for your family. Your kids will even love it as a snack! Bring out your baking pan and rack set and start baking!
