caramel apple turnovers

turnovers

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.

Caramel-Apple Turnovers

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
Powdered sugar

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.

Enjoy,

    is it safe to assume the egg was intended to be used as an egg wash? thanks
