TO MIX ALL FILLING INGREDIENTS


Step 1

Place stacked sheets of phyllo on a flat surface and cover with plastic wrap to keep from drying out.

Step 2

Place 1 phyllo sheet on work surface. Lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Top with another sheet. Cut lengthwise in three 4-inch-wide strips. Move strips apart. Mound 1 heaping tablespoon filling at one end about 1-inch from corner. Fold opposite corner at same end over filling, forming a triangle. Continue folding your way up the strip, as you would a flag, to the end.

Step 3

Repeat with remaining phyllo and the filling. You'll have 12 turnovers. (Can be made ahead up to this point and frozen on a tray or cookie sheet. When firm, pack in plastic bags.).

TO BAKE FRESH OR FROZEN TURNOVERS


Step 4

Heat oven to 400-degrees F. Lightly coat a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 5

Arrange turnovers seam-side down on prepared cookie sheet. Lightly spray tops with cooking spray. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake 15 - 17 minutes, or until golden. Remove to wire rack to cool.

Awesome recipe Forevermama. The flavor of the apples is wonderful. We enjoyed this tasty treat very much. I had a bit of difficulty with the pastry, gotta practice more. My turnovers were not very pretty... but they sure tasted good. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again. Made FYC tag game.

Good turnovers. Although good I didn't find the dough easy to work -- so mine didn't come out as pretty as the one pictured but taste great! Thanks for sharing!

For 2 1/2 cups of chopped apple I used 4 granny smith apples otherwise made as per recipe and served up 6 for dessert and froze the rest for later use. The only issue I had is my pastry sheets were 11" so with the first one I tried it in thirds but couldn't get the triangle right so then did 4" strips and that worked well so all up got 13 apple turnovers which we all enjoyed. Thank you ForeverMama for a lovely dessert, made for Alphabet Soup tag game.
