Easy Apple Turnovers

Easy Apple Turnovers

So, fall is here- yeahhhh!  I love fall. I hate  to see summer go, but fall puts me in a pretty good mood. The pumpkins, apples, leaves, (NH has the best foliage!), and cool, crisp weather that’s perfect for baking. It’s a slight reminder that winter is on its’ way but I can’t let myself think about that yet.

So I bought a big bag of apples, but didn’t have a plan on what to do with them. I love to bake, but it’s just me and Mark at home, and I continue to learn that we just can’t keep up with everything I’m making. I hate wasting food, and after bringing in a huge batch of my homemade glazed donuts to work, I figured I’d give my workmates a baking break too. So that being said, I only made 4 apple turnovers. This recipe makes 8, but I used the 2nd half of the Pillsbury biscuits in this recipe to make mini deep dish pizzas. I say that was pretty thrifty ; ) Now we had a delicious snack/meal as well as dessert! Each of which took less than 30 minutes to make.

Oh, and you have to serve these with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream…it’s just soooo good… and the perfect way to bring in fall.

Easy Apple Turnovers
Serves: 8 turnovers
 
Ingredients
  • 2 & ⅔ cups chopped tart apples (Granny Smith is perfect)
  • ⅔ cup water
  • ⅔ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg (don’t overdo it)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (16.3 oz.) can of Pillsbury Buttermilk Grands! Biscuits.
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400. Combine the apples and water in a saucepan. Cook and stir on medium heat until it comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to love and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and simmer for another 5 minutes, stirring often. Mix the flour and sugar together, and stir into the apple mixture. Bring to boil and let boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in the butter.
  2. Roll each biscuit into a flat circle. Spoon a heaping tablespoon in the middle of each one and fold over, pressing down the edges to form a seal.
  3. Place on non-stick baking pan and bake for approximately 7-10 minutes, or until golden brown on top. I’d recommend setting the timer for 5 minutes and then resetting it again after you gauge how far along the turnovers are.
  4. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!
