  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat apples, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch to boiling over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; simmer about 5 minutes or until thickened and apples are tender. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • 3
    Sprinkle work surface lightly with flour. Roll out thawed puff pastry into 15-inch square. Cut into 4 smaller squares.
  • 4
    Brush each square with egg wash; spoon apple mixture onto center of each. Fold each in half diagonally to form a triangle; press edges together to seal. Use back of fork to crimp edges. Transfer to cookie sheet; brush with egg wash. Use sharp knife to cut a few vents into each turnover.
  • 5
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden.

Expert Tips

  • Thaw puff pastry in the fridge overnight or at room temperature 30 minutes.
  • To prevent filling from leaking, make sure to seal edges completely, and cut vents into each turnover before baking.
