Though these apple turnovers may look complex to make, they really are easy and are so worth the effort. This recipe can be made quickly if you use tin apple instead of making your own apple filling. It also tastes great with a peach filling or Nutella filling.
This Apple Turnover recipe makes 24 delicious apple turnovers. These turnovers don’t keep well, so if you don’t need that many, you could halve the recipe.
The cream filling should be added just before serving, or otherwise the apple turnovers will start to get soft and go a little soggy.
