Apple Turnovers
4 sheets ready-rolled puff pastry, partially thawed
2 cups canned pie apple
½ cup raw sugar
2 tblsp maple syrup or honey
1 tblsp milk
Whipped cream, to serve
Preheat oven to 200°C. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Using a large cutter, cut two 14cm
rounds from each pastry sheet, or just one pastry sheet into four squares. Combine apple and ¼
cup sugar in a bowl. Stir gently to combine. Use a knife to cut big pieces. Spoon ¼ cup of apple
mixture over one half of each pastry round, leaving a one centimetre border.
Drizzle each with one teaspoon of maple syrup or honey.
Fold pastry over filling to enclose. Using a fork, press edge to seal.
Place turnovers on prepared trays.
Brush turnover tops with milk. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake for 10 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack. Stand for five minutes. Serve warm with cream.
Be careful and seal the edges of the pastry tightly to avoid leakage
