Ingredients

  • 2 cups Granny Smith apples - 2 Granny Smith apples are perfect, diced small
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • 6 tablespoons apple jelly - (I have also used apricot), warmed until it is just melted
  • 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch
  • teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 sheet puff pastry - thawed - they come two to a pack so keep the other one in the freezer until you need it
  • 2 tablespoons dairy-free butter - softened

Instructions

  • Defrost the pastry sheet - it takes about 20 minutes.
  • On a floured surface roll out the pastry sheet in one direction so that it makes a longer rectangle. The final rectangle will measure 12" x 18".
  • In a bowl mix the cornstarch, melted jelly and cinnamon together.
  • Add the apples and cranberries - mix well.
  • Cut the sheet down the center, lengthwise, so that there are 6" on each side.
  • Now cut each side, twice, so that there are 6 squares that measure 6" x 6".
  • Dollop the apple mixture, evenly in the center of each square.
  • Dot the vegan butter on top of each pile of the apple mixture.
  • Fold over the squares to line up the edges to form a triangle.
  • Press the edges with your fingertips and fold over a small edge if you can.
  • Use the tines of a fork to go around the edges to crimp a better seal.
  • Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet.
  • Bake ay 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and then place the turnovers on a rack to cool.
  • Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top of the turnovers, if you wish.

Notes

You can enjoy these little gems any time of the day.
They freeze perfectly too.
IF FREEZING:
After they have cooled you may freeze them in any of the methods shown in my article Preparing Food for the Freezer.
They defrost quickly so it really doesn't take any planning. The microwave will also zap them in 20 seconds.
You can also heat them in a 350 degree preheated oven for 10 minutes.
