Serves: 12
Cook time:
Total time:
  • 1 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1 green apple, small diced
  • 2-3 Tbs. sugar
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. maple syrup
  • 1 Tbs. lemon juice (optional)
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, defrosted
  • 2 oz shredded Comté cheese
  • 1 large egg
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the diced apples, 2 Tbs. sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and a pinch of salt.
  3. Cook for 5-7 minutes until softened. Stir in the maple syrup and cook until the mixture thickens, about 2 minutes. Taste and add sugar or lemon juice if desired.
  4. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside to cool. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry.
  5. Cut the sheet into 12 equal squares.
  6. Whisk the egg with 1 Tbs. water and brush the edges of the squares with the egg wash. Divide the filling evenly among the squares and top each with about 1 Tbs. of shredded Comté.
  7. Fold the squares into triangles and seal the edges with a fork. Brush the tops of the turnovers with egg wash and top with ½ tsp. of shredded Comté.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
