This treat is reminiscent of the New York State Fair…totally. In my younger days we went every year (a couple of times each year) so I could compete in dance. After twirling, leaping, and tapping my heart out there was no bigger delight than walking around the fair. And there was no other place where I would get away with caramel apples, fried dough, apple dumpling, chocolate milk, maybe a hot dog, all in one day.
Now, I did not intend for this to taste like the state fair. It really started because I wanted to use up some caramel sauce and a caramel apple turnover sounded great! After my first attempt I had a yummy, sweet apple treat but not what I wanted. The caramel was completely lost. And I couldn’t just let it go. So off to the store for vanilla caramels and after a short time in the kitchen…ah yes. There we go.
1 sheet frozen puffed pastry, thawed
1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
1 Tbsp flour
5 vanilla caramels, cut into small pieces
1 egg, beaten with a bit of water
Preheat oven to 400°. Mix diced apple with flour until apples are coated. Unroll puff pastry sheet onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or onto a baking stone and cut into 4 squares. Spoon apple mix onto center of each square. Divide cut up caramels onto the apple mix. Fold the pastry over the apple caramel mix, forming a triangle. Pinch the edges with your fingers or seal, gently, with a fork. Bake in 400°oven for 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden. Dust with powdered sugar.
