For the apple pie spice glaze


  • Leave the peeling on the apples and core all your apples then chop them into bite size pieces. Place the apple chunks into a large bowl.
  • Measure out the flour, salt and the apple pie spice into medium size bowl and mix very well.
  • Mix the apple cider vinegar and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Pour over the chopped apples and mix well.
  • Measure and pour the white sugar onto the apples and mix.
  • Pour the flour/spice mixture over the sugared apples and stir.
  • Stir to coat the apple completely with the mixture and let sit for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes are up preheat your oven according to puff pastry directions and temperatures. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set them aside.
  • Unroll and cut the puff pastry with a pizza cutter into 4” squares. Place a tablespoon of the apple pie mixture in the centre of each square of puff pastry.
  • Fold the turnovers by bringing one corner of the puff pastry diagonally across and pressing to the diagonally opposite corner. Press the edges of the folded puff pastry together to form a seal, and then use a fork to make a crimped edge
  • Set each turnover on the prepared baking sheets. And make two small cuts in the top of the puff pastry using kitchen shears. Place into preheated oven and bake for 12 minutes, until golden brown
