Apple Turnover

I am an apple pie lover. I love the crunchiness of the cooked puff pastry and the sweet and sourness of the apple, not so much on the cinnamon though. I used to buy those fried apple pie from a junk food outlet, because it is cheap and always available everywhere whenever I crave for it. Few months ago, I bumped into apple turnover in a Chinese bakery Chinatown and I loved it ever since. They are so much healthier because they are baked and not  fried like the the cheap one.

Few days ago, I had a ready rolled puff pastry left over in the fridge and I thought ‘why not making the apple turnover for my toddler’. I always want to give him a variety of foods to try on, so he could learn to love and appreciate healthy food. So I did the apple turnover my style. I mix the diced apples with honey instead of sugar, spread some ricotta cheese on the ready rolled puff pastry, put a spoonful of apple mixture, fold them into triangles, sprinkle some sugar to make the top sparkly appetizing, and they turned out to be a hit.

Apple Turnover


  • ready used rolled puff pastry
  • 2 apples (preferably Granny Smith or Pink Lady), cut into small cubes
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon (can be added more to your preferences)
  • ricotta cheese for spreading
  • melted butter for brushing
  • white sugar to sprinkle


  1. Mix the apples, honey, and ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
  2. Cut the puff pastry into square 12×12 cm.
  3. Spread generous amount of ricotta cheese onto the puff pastry (not too close to the edges). Spoon 2 tbsp of apple mixture into the puff pastry. Close the pastry to shape like a triangle. Press the edges with fork.
  4. Preheat the oven 170 C.
  5. Brush the triangle apple turnover with melted butter and sprinkle white sugar on top.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastry well-puffed.

Preparation time (duration): 30
