  • 4 Small or 2 large Granny Smith apples (chopped and peeled)
  • 4 Tablespoons Cold water
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cornflour (cornstarch)
  • 100 g Soft brown sugar (½ Cup)
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon (optional)
  • 500 g Pack ready-to-roll puff pastry (17.5 oz)
  • Melted butter or plant-based milk (to brush the pastry)

For the glaze:

  • 45 g Icing sugar (1/3 Cup)
  • 1 Tablespoon Plant-based milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla essence


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F (or 180°C/ 350°F if you're using a fan or convection oven) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

  2. Set the puff pastry out at room temperature to allow it to soften while you prepare the apple turnover filling.

  3. Add the chopped apples to a large pan along with the water, cornflour, sugar, and cinnamon. Mix well.

  4. Turn the heat on medium and cook for roughly 10 minutes, stirring often, until the mixture begins to thicken. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly.

  5. Roll out your puff pastry to around 1/2 cm thick. Divide it evenly into 8 squares using a knife or pizza cutter. Discard any uneven edges.

  6. Place 1-2 tablespoons of filling into the center of each pastry square. Fold the pastry diagonally over the filling to join at the corners, then seal the edges using a fork. Be careful not to overfill them.

  7. Lightly brush each pastry with melted vegan butter or plant-based milk. 

  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the turnovers are golden brown all over. Once baked, transfer to a wire rack to cool.

  9. Prepare your glaze by mixing together the icing sugar, plant-based milk and vanilla essence. Drizzle it over the cooled turnovers and allow it to harden.
