Snowy Day desserts

On those quiet snowy days when going out for dessert is just not an option... I start browsing Pinterest to see what I can make from ingredients already in my cupboards.

This is what won!!

2 sheets pre-made frozen puff pastry, defrosted

2 tablespoons butter
4 apples, cored, peeled and sliced into 1/8” thick slices

2 teaspoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
dash salt

1 egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Lay the pastry on the floured counter and roll out to two 10” squares. Cut each square into four 5"x5"squares. Set aside.
In a skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add apples, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, orange juice and salt. Sauté 3-4 minutes, until apples are crisp-tender (NOT soft- they will continue to cook in oven) and juice has slightly thickened into a caramel-like sauce.

Divide apples up evenly for the 8 turnovers. Spread apples across the center of each pastry square followed by a little of the sauce drizzled over the top of apples. Dip fingers in water and rub along the edges. Fold the top edge over the bottom and press to seal the edges. Brush the tops lightly egg wash. Repeat with the other squares.

Bake for about 15 minutes, until golden and puffed. Can be served hot or cold.

Thank you!! Delicious!! We chose to serve with a scoop of ice cream! Mmmmm good!
