Apple Season Is The Time For Gluten-Free Apple Turnovers!
With the apple season is in full force, what better reason than to bake something sweet and delicious that the entire family will love. Apple turnovers are something I grew up with and loved, especially warm right out of the oven.
My grandmother always made them for me whenever I visited her, but she used the classic store-bought chilled puffed pastry.
I tried some store bought frozen gluten-free apple turnovers, and honestly, I couldn’t eat them. Another apple dessert you may enjoy is the Gluten-Free Breakfast Apple Yogurt Cake

start with the gluten-free sweet pastry
First, I made the gluten-free sweet pastry. To give you an idea, this gluten-free pastry texture is something between shortcrust and puff pastry.
the cinnamon apple filling
This part was super easy. The fresh apple chunks are briefly cooked in a buttery, cinnamon sauce with fresh lemon juice. The filling is sooo good! The cinnamon apple filling and sweet pastry are a perfect combo.
assembling the apple turnovers
The next part is assembling the Apple Turnovers. First, let me stress that when you work with pastry dough, it has to be cold. You want to have small pieces of butter in the flour.
The butter is what gives the flakiness to the pastry. The dough is rolled out into two squares and then cut into four more squares.
Now add the filling to half the square and seal the pastry. I found it a lot of fun making the apple turnovers, and tasting the apple filling lol.
As with all gluten-free baking, these pastries are the best when fresh and slightly warm. I like to warm them in a hot oven for a few minutes for that freshly baked texture for leftovers.
You can also reheat the pastry in the microwave for about 15 seconds, which is almost as good. Finally, if you want to make the Gluten-Free Apple Turnovers a special dessert, heat them and top them with vanilla bean ice cream. Enjoy!
