I partnered with Eckert’s Farms for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Every year, my whole family and I head out to Eckert’s Farms to pick apples. We love this tradition that we have been doing for more than 10 years! While most of the time we love to enjoy their apples the classic way (biting into that crunchy sweet apple!), I decided this year it was time to make a delicious recipe for us all to enjoy. My classic apple turnovers recipe that I got from my Mom was a huge hit with us all and I know that I’ll be making it a few times this season since it’s so easy to make.
- Puff Pastry
- 2 Large Honeycrisp Apples, cored, peeled and chopped (my favorite kind of apples!)
- 2 Tablespoons of Butter
- 1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon
- 2 Teaspoons of Cornstarch
- Heat the oven to 400 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- In a saucepan, combine apples, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and corn starch and heat until boiling. Turn down heat and let simmer for 5 minutes or until the mixture is thickened and apples are tender. Set aside to cool.
- Roll out the puff pastry and cut into 9 even squares.
- Spoon the apple mixture in the center of each square.
- Fold the pastry in half to form a triangle and use a fork to seal the edges. Use a knife to create a few vents on top of each turnover. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
You will love this apple turnovers recipe! It’s flaky, sweet and is delicious with some vanilla ice cream on top! If you’re in St. Louis, make sure to head to Eckert’s Farms to pick up your apples. My whole family loves the experience of taking a wagon to the fields and picking apples right from the trees.
Apple season doesn’t end until late October so you have plenty of time to head to Eckert’s Farms for some fresh picked apples. I can’t wait to hear what delicious apple recipe you make!
Pin it for later!
