Pastry and apples are a classic combination, and these easy-to-make apple turnovers are the perfect way to enjoy them. The key to a good turnover is in the pastry – it should be light and flaky, with just the right amount of sweetness. Our recipe uses frozen puff pastry, which makes things even easier.

Once you’ve mastered the basic technique, you can try different fillings – trying different fruits or even savory options. These turnovers are best enjoyed fresh from the oven, but they will keep for a day or two in an airtight container.
