- Paint egg wash onto each puff pastry square.  

-  Spoon apple mixture into the center of each puff pastry square. 

- Add apple mixture to the center of each puff pastry square.

- Fold puff pastry over apple mixture in a triangular fashion and crimp edges with a fork.  

- Egg wash the top of each turn over and then make small diagonal incisions on the top of each turn over to allow ventilation. 

- Bake turnovers on parchment paper lined baking sheet for 20-30 min. until turnovers are golden brown.  

- Lightly frost with your favorite frosting and cover with a #ChefanieSheet!
