Apple Turnover


I made these  Apple Turnovers  with the Kawan puff pastry and they turned out great.   I served these for tea and they were well received by my family members.  Not only were these flaky pastries delicious but they were extremely easy and simple to make.  Aromatic pastries with apples, raisins and much more ..........














I've no idea how the name came about but I'm sure that I didn't 'turn over' any apples, instead I placed a fresh piece of pastry on top of the apple filling ....... so shall I give it  another name?   Perhaps, just simple Apple Puffs?

Recipe for Apple Turnovers

Ingredients
  • 2 green apples
  • 2  Tbsp orange juice
  • 1  tsp orange zest
  • 3  Tbsp raisins
  • 3  Tbsp demerara sugar
  • 1/4  tsp cinnamon
  • 1  Tbsp flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten + 1 tsp water
Method
  1. Combine orange zest and juice.
  2. Peel, core and cut apples into 1/4 inch dice, toss in with the zest to prevent them from browning.
  3. Add in raisins, cinnamon, salt, sugar and flour.  Mix well.
  4. Place apple mixture onto a 4 inch x 4inch pastry, leaving about 3/4 inch border all round. 
  5. Apply egg wash round the sides of the pastry.
  6. Place another piece of pastry on top of the apple mixture, seal and crimp the edges with a fork.
  7. Apply egg wash on top of the pastry.
  8. Cut 3 small steam vents on top of each pastry.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven @ 200 deg C for 20 mins., till puffed and golden brown.
  10. Remove from oven, let cool on a wire rack.
  11. Dust with icing sugar.
  12. Serve warm.

  5. This looks temptingly delicious, my friend! I think I can handle this simple recipe... just got to search for the puff pastry squares at Tesco. Would it be possible to just use a single pastry wrap, fill half with the apple+raisins mixture and roll over like sardine rolls?

    You can put in the filling, not so much, then fold it diagonally and crimp the edges, or even make into a rectangle.
    Rolling up like a swissroll, afraid that the filling will drop out. Happy trying!

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
