Apple Turnovers using Phyllo Dough

Apple Turnovers using Phyllo Dough



4-5 apples quite small (use granny smith for a better result),diced,
1-2 TBS butter
2 tsp lemon/orange peel
1/4 cup -1/3 cup sugar (depending on your taste...)
1 tsp vanilla extract
phyllo sheets
1 tsp cinnamon, sometimes I use Nutmeg (Jouz hendi in Farsi) or ginger powder, and the tase is extraordinary goood!
butter  melted
powdered sugar for dusting (optional)

Peel and dice apples. In a medium saucepan, add apples,sugar,vanilla,orange/lemon peel and cinnamon. Heat on med-low stirring every so often . Cook for about 5 minutes or until the apple mixture thickens.

Remove from heat. Remove phyllo dough from package and have a damp towel ready so you can keep the phyllo sheets covered as you work.They tend to dry out very quickly

Melt butter. Using a pastry brush, brush one phyllo sheet. Fold in half(vertical)and brush again. Fold again to form a long strip. Brush again with butter if you like. On one edge, add about 1 1/2 TBS of apple filling. Roll in the form of a triangle...just like you would fold a flag.
 Brush the outside of the triangle phyllo turnover with extra butter. Place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 220c for 15 minutes or until nicely golden brown. Check after about 10 minutes so that they won't burn. Oven temps vary.

About Me

I'm Proshat, the queen behind Proshat Kitchen. I've never attended a cooking class, although I'd love to. My cooking knowledge mostly comes from my lovely mom, a master chef in our family, and also leaning by doing. I really love this wonderful science and I'm still fascinated by it. I’m a senior researcher in energy and economy, recently finished my Ph.D. So I am not an expert cook, please do not refer my blog as a professional source. I start blogging as a way to keep track of my progress in the kitchen and to get rid of the pile of printed recipes with hand written notes. I mostly write about my general experiences and my baking adventures. I love trying new combos in our everyday bread. On my blog you will find lots of classic recipes with a personal touch. Except my husband, a couple of close friends are my main testers. Love you all!! If you have a recipe you'd like me to feature on my blog, drop me a line. I would also love to hear your thoughts. I'm so happy you took the time to visit my blog; it means so much to be. Hope you'll visit again soon :) Love, Proshat
