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!

Peach Resin Snow Fungus Dessert ~ 桃胶雪耳糖水

The scientific name for Peach resin is Prunus Persica which is resin secreted from the Peach tree and form like crystals which are stuck to the tree.  Originated from China, the composition of peach resin is collagen, amino acids.  The rich collagen helps to improve the complexion, nourishes and helps to prevent dryness of the skin.  It also helps to improve bowel movement.  In short, this is an inexpensive substitute to the highly expensive birds nest.

Kaya Slice ~ 咖椰片

I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!
