Recipe Tips

  • Supposing that you want to use up some fresh apples rather than canned, simply cook down the apples diced in a pot until nice and tender. This extra will add about 10-20 minutes more onto the recipe but will be worth it if you have delicious fresh apples.
  • If you find the apple is leaking out the sides too much, then make sure you crimp the edges more. As well as this, make sure you poke a hole for the steam to escape otherwise you will end up with exploding apple turnovers.
  • One thing you’re able to do if you’re a sweet tooth is to sprinkle some sugar over the top of the apple.
  • Assuming you like sugar, you can sprinkle some sugar on top of the pastry before it goes in the oven.
