2 apples peeled, cored and diced (Try it with Granny Smith)
1 sheet puff pastry thawed
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 lemon juiced
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 egg white plus 1 tbsp water whisked together
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk
1. Preheat oven to 400°, lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray
2. Melt butter in a skillet, add apples and cook for about 3 minutes. Add sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cornstarch, lemon juice and stir. Bring to a simmer and cook until sauce is thickened after about 5 minutes.
3. Unfold the thawed puff pastry sheet. Use a rolling pin to gently roll over the seams. Cut the sheet into four squares. Divide the mixture up evenly and spoon it into the center of the pastry square. Fold the pastry in half and pinch the edges together using a fork. Repeat with the remaining squares. Brush some egg wash on top of the pastries to help them become nicely browned. Place on baking sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes on cooling rack.
4. In a small bowl whisk the powdered and milk together until combined. If you want it thicker just add a little more sugar. Drizzle glaze over turnovers. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in freezer. Once they are frozen you can put them in a ziplock freezer. Once they are frozen you can put them in a ziplock freezer bag and they wont stick together. Bake 15-20 minutes
