Apple Turnovers (Arby's Copycat)

I kid you not, every single time Jason tries to order an apple turnover at Arby's, they are out.

It's become a running joke.

Instead of just picking up a box of frozen ones at the store, I found a copycat recipe to try instead so he could get his apple turnover fix.

And y'all. They're amazing.

I wasn't even a fan of fruit turnovers until I tried these. To be honest, I would have been fine just eating the cinnamon apple filling with a spoon but the addition of puff pastry is always a good idea.

Apple Turnovers {Arby's Copycat}
For the turnovers:
1 package puff pastry sheets
4 large cooking apples
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon water

Peel, core, and dice the apples. In a medium saucepan over low heat, cook the apples, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and cinnamon stirring frequently, until apples are tender. Refrigerate until cool.

Thaw the puff pastry at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400.

Unfold the first sheet of pastry on a lightly floured surface. With a rolling pin, roll it into a 12 inch square and cut into four 6-inch squares. Repeat with the second sheet.

Place 1/4 cup apple mixture in the center of each square. Brush the edges with water and fold to form triangles, sealing the edges firmly. 

Place on baking sheets and bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Cool on wire rack. 

To make the glaze, stir together the sugar and water. Using a spoon, drizzle over top of turnover, allowing to set before serving.
