It was a rare treat as a kid when my mom would bring home fresh apple turnovers from the grocery store. When we were ready to eat them, she’d warm them slightly in the oven. It was perfection!

Achieving that fresh apple turnover taste doesn’t have to mean spending all day in the kitchen perfecting that flaky crust. For this recipe, we’re using puff pastry, which you can find in the freezer section of your grocery store.

Puff pastry gives us that light, buttery, flaky goodness – no needing required! Just make sure to set the puff pastry out on your counter about 30-45 minutes BEFORE you’re ready to assemble these pockets of goodness so it has time to thaw.

When it comes to choosing your apples, you could go with just about any variety but I’m partial to using the classic green baking apple – Granny Smiths. This apple holds up really well when cooking and baking!

To make this recipe even easier (yes, really!) we’re using Arctic Apples® pre-sliced apples. Just give them a quick dice and into the pan they go, along with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, to soften.

We recently shared these Caramel Apple Yogurt Parfaits using Arctic Apples, and they’re an easy 4-ingredient recipe that’s the perfect taste of fall.

Once these come out of the oven with that flaky, golden-brown crust your family won’t be able to resist digging in!
