Super Easy Apple Turnovers!!
Friday, September 21, 2007 | Time: 9:04 AM

Ok this is way cool. I found this while wandering around the site Open Source Food. This is kind of like a baked french toast meets apple turnovers, really. A great way to use up bread (especially those pesky ends!) and a thrifty alternative to buying phyllo pastry or making proper pastries, because you can just use up what you've got around the house. In addition, you could easily substitute apples for just about any other fruit, and add dried fruits and nuts.. you could just go crazy with this one.
I imagine they'd freeze ok, so you could pop a few out for breakfast whenever or pack them in bento lunches!
Tip: Make sure your apples are chopped small enough for your bread, or everything leaks out the sides! :) It took me a few tries to get the apples in the right spot so it would close properly, though it still leaked a little!
  • 8 slices of bread
  • 2 apples, peeled and diced
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp butter
  1. Toss apples, lemon juice, sugars, salt, cinnamon and butter into a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, until the apples are soft. Set aside to cool.
  2. Roll out the bread slices until very thin. Place about one tablespoon of apple mixture onto one triangle-half of each slice. Fold the other side of the bread over, and brush eggwash/water over the sides to clamp the bread tightly.
  3. Bake at 220C (or about 425F) for 18-20mins.
