Crispy Apple Turnovers





American as it may be, the caloric price of applie pie can be a steep one to pay. I've cut calories dramatically by packing all the appley goodness in a warm handheld vessel.

8 g fat (1 g saturated)
32 g carbohydrates
20 g sugars


You'll Need:
  • Flour
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 Granny Smith apples
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten

How to Make It:
* Flour a work surface. Roll the puff pastry into a 9" x 15" rectangle. Cut the pastry into six equal squares.

* Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a saucepan. Peel and core the apples; cut them into 1/4" chunks. Toss with the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and lemon juice, then add to the water and simmer until the liquid thickens, 5 to 7 minutes. Set aside to cool.

* Preheat the oven to 425�F. Spoon 3 tablespoons of apples onto each of the puff pastry squares. Fold the pastry over the filling to make a triangle and seal by pinching the edges.

* Place the turnovers on a baking sheet and brush with the egg white. Bake until crispy and golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Makes 6 servings.
