Caramel Apple Turnovers.

These flaky turnovers are so easy to make. Simply stuff with homemade cinnamon apple filling and generously top with caramel sauce. 

Easy Caramel Apple Turnovers - one of the easiest recipes I've made. These are a must try!

I had a bittersweet moment yesterday.  I took Jude out for his early morning walk and after 2 minutes of being in the fresh air, I had to rush back inside to change from my beloved flip-flops into my fuzzy moccasin slippers (pink, of course).  I threw a warm fleece over my lightweight t-shirt and braced the crisp air.

You guys, fall is upon us.  Sadly, that means goodbye to summer.

Jude + Slippers

Luckily, it means hello to everything here. Yum.  

If you’re anything like me, you enjoy the warm flavors of fall any time of the year.  I had dreams of making today’s turnovers back in the spring but decided to wait until the weather cooled down to actually make them.  I’m kicking myself for waiting so long; these buttery, flaky turnovers are INCREDIBLE.  I mean… look at them.

Literally dripping with caramel and oozing with sweet apples. Perfectly enjoyed after a chilly morning walk. They’ll make you feel all warm and cozy inside. :)

Seriously good (and easy!) Caramel Apple Turnovers

What I love about these turnovers is how simple they are.  The hardest part is… nothing. There is nothing difficult about making today’s recipe.  It all starts with a package of thawed puff pastry.  Puff pastry is very easy to work with. In its raw form, it’s similar to pie crust. When baked – it’s magically airy, flaky, and puffy. Layers upon layers of buttery goodness.

The trick here is to thaw the puff pastry for about 2 hours. But do not let it get too warm or it will be hard to work with. An easy way to do this is to put the frozen puff pastry in the refrigerator before going to sleep. In the morning, the pastry will be thawed, but still cool.

There are typically two sheets of puff pastry in a standard box. Unfold the two sheets and lay them flat. Cut each into four squares. Spoon the filling on top, leaving about 1 inch diameter around the edges.  Fold in a triangle. Crimp edges with a fork.

Like so:

The filling is made from two small peeled and chopped apples. I used 1 Granny Smith and 1 Pink Lady apple. Any variety will work.  You’ll cook down the apples with 1 teaspoon cornstarch, 1/4 cup chopped pecans, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup sugar. The pecans are completely optional. I loved the extra texture they gave to the gooey filling, though.

I get my love of sweet pecans from my mom. (Hi mom!)

Allow the filling to cool and slightly thicken after it cooks down. I usually prepare the filling about 20 minutes before unrolling the puff pastry.

Caramel Apple Turnover filling

After you fill the puff pastry squares and fold them into triangles, brush the tops with a beaten egg and cut 2 or 3 small steam vents.  Now it’s time to bake them.  They are very quick in the oven – only about 20 minutes.  No need to flip them.

The cinnamon-y apples will leak onto the baking sheet…

…and it’s utterly amazing.

Easy Caramel Apple Turnovers

I like to eat them warm right out of the oven.  Once they are done, I drizzle each with caramel sauce.  I used the same caramel recipe from these cinnamon rolls.You could also use store bought caramel sauce or your favorite homemade caramel.  There is nothing quite like the combination of caramel and apples, especially this time of year!

If you have about an hour to spare, do yourself a favor and make these luscious turnovers. For breakfast, afternoon snack, or heck – even dessert with a huge scoop of melty vanilla ice cream. (Umm… yum.) You’ll fall in love with the pillow-y, flaky crust and the warm cinnamon-spiced apple filling tucked inside.   I can’t wait to make a few different variations!

Don’t want to use puff pastry?  Use my favorite pie crust to make individual hand-pies with this filling instead.

Caramel Apple Turnovers

Easy, buttery, and incredibly flaky turnovers stuffed with gooey cinnamon apples and generously topped with caramel sauce. My favorite way to start a cool, crisp fall morning.

Yield: 8 large turnovers

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

Filling

  • 2 small peeled & finely diced apples, any variety
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, optional
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

Pastry

  • 1 package (2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, thawed*
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce for drizzling*

Directions:

Make the filling. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook the apples, cornstarch, pecans, vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar.  Stir constantly for 5 minutes.  Switch to low heat and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to cool off for 20 minutes.

Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mats.

Prepare the pastry: Unroll the puff pastry sheets onto a lightly floured surface. Cut each into 4 squares.  Spoon 2-3 Tablespoons of apple mixture onto the center of each square.  Fold each over into a triangle shape and crimp the edges with a fork to seal. See photo above for visual. Some apple juices may leak out.

Lightly brush the top of each turnover with beaten egg.  Cut 2 or 3 small steam vents in the tops. Bake each batch for 20 minutes until golden brown.  Rotate the pan halfway through bake time to avoid uneven browning.

Remove from the oven and drizzle each turnover with caramel sauce immediately before serving.  Turnovers taste best on the same day, though you can store them at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Unglazed, baked turnovers may be frozen up to 2 months and thawed overnight in the refrigerator, then warmed up in the oven or microwave.

    Sally, these turnovers look fantastic! I love pre-made puff pastry. It’s so simple and easy to use, as you say. And yet, it also feel elegant at the same time. Perfect for whipping up an impressive breakfast or dessert in no time flat. can’t wait to try these out after we go apple picking! Thanks for the inspiration!

    The opening pic of your post is probably the best photo you’ve ever taken. Sally, it’s stunning. It should be on the cover of your cookbook b/c I know you love apple pie so much! I love the light, the color gradient, the reflection of the caramel – totally works soooo well.

    And I like how you have one big bold big like that, and not as many seemingly others. Yes, the step shots and the others, but that your main money shot is just BAM, right there, and so striking. I have thought about using less pics. I now cap it at 7-8 pics. I’d love to do like…3-4 :)

    I’m so excited for caramel and apples! I saw the first Daffy Apples of the year at the grocery store last weekend, and it made me happy :). These look adorable! You also made me want to try to make some kind of cinnamon toast with puff pastry…my mom used to make me cinnamon-toast flour tortillas, which are REALLY good. I love your choice of apples! I think Pink Ladies are some of the best, along with Jazz and Ambrosia. Yum, now I’m all hungry ;). Thanks!

      Pink Ladies and Jazz are my favorites! And honey crisp, too. I am so happy apples are now coming into their prime!

    As we discussed before, Hooray for autumn! And your pink slippers! They are just darling. Sometimes nothing is more satisfying than a caramel apple, but those can rip your teeth out, so these turnovers seem like a completely reasonable alternative. You’ve done it again. Thanks for another beautifully photographed, mouthwatering recipe!

    Yum! I love how oozing and delicious these are. They look like the perfect treat to launch us into fall! I’m a little jealous of your crisp weather… it’s still 100 degrees where I am!

      Don’t worry Erin – of course the day after I publish this – the weather inches up to the 90s. Haha! But will be cooler soon (hopefully).

      It was 90 for me too! But then 60 degrees the other early morning. The weather can’t quite make up its mind, that’s for sure.

      They are Ugg slippers but I can’t seem to find them in the light pink anymore. I know they have a darker pink for sale this season though.

    Caramel and apple is such a winning combination! These look so gorgeous (as do your fluffy slippers, so happy and warm!). It’s weird to be reading all the American posts about Fall at the moment. For us in Australia, Spring is in the air and I’m loving the transition to sunny days, warmth and new growth on the trees. Despite it not being Fall, I do think it’s still totally acceptable for me to get in the apple and caramel mood. These are calling my name! xx

      Laura, I can imagine it must be weird to read American food blogs right now – or even in your chilly days when it’s our summer! Apple and caramel are acceptable any time of year, of course. ;)

    Hi,

    These look absolutely yummy! I looked over the recipe a couple of times as well as other posts, but I don’t see the temperature for baking. I assume it is bake 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Is that correct? I really want to make some as we are getting chilly here and I have been searching apple recipes today.

    Thank you! I, too, love your moccasins. :)

    This was the first recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction that I have made (I made them yesterday), and they were a HUGE hit! I received many “ooohs” and “aaahs”. And they were SO EASY to make! (but I didn’t tell anyone… that will remain my little secret). I also made the caramel sauce, which I have heard is a very tricky process, but I followed the instructions and timing exactly as the recipe said, and it was some of the best caramel I’ve ever had. Thanks so much for this recipe! I will for sure be making this one again.

    Do you have a preference of pastry puff that you use? Have you ever made homemade pastry puff? If you have- I’d love the recipe! And if you haven’t you should! Making these right now… can’t wait to try them! I want to eat the apple filling out of the pan it smells amazing.

      Caster sugar is the same as granulated sugar, but it has been reduced to a finer grain. In this recipe, however, you may use caster.
