  • PREP TIME: 20 minutes
  • COOK TIME: 15 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 35 minutes


For Stewed Cinnamon Apples

  • 2 apples (Pink Lady recommended), peeled and diced
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons water

For Turnovers

  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked for egg wash

Optional to Serve

  • Thickened Cream, whipped


  • Cook the Stewed Cinnamon Apples as instructed in this post. Once cooked, transfer them to a plate and allow them to cool slightly.
  • Remove the puff pastry sheet from the freezer and let it thaw partially. Then, cut the sheet into 4 squares and brush the edges of each square with the beaten egg.
  • Spoon the stewed apples into the center of each puff pastry square. Fold the pastry over from corner to corner, forming a triangle shape, and seal the edges together with a fork.
  • Brush the tops of each turnover with the beaten egg.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 180°C / 350°F. Place two turnovers in the air fryer basket and cook for 15 minutes, or until they turn golden brown. Repeat the process to cook the remaining turnovers.
  • Serve the turnovers as they are or accompanied by thickened cream. Enjoy!


Tips for making Air Fryer Apple Turnovers

  • No preheating of the air fryer is necessary for these apple turnovers.
  • If your air fryer isn’t non-stick, lightly spray the bottom of the basket with cooking spray before adding the turnovers.
  • While optional, applying an egg wash will enhance the color and shine of the turnovers.
  • If you have a single-basket air fryer, you’ll need to cook the turnovers in two batches. However, if you have trays or a trivet attachment, you can cook them all at once.
  • Alternatively, you can bake the turnovers in a preheated oven (180°C / 350°F) on a lined baking tray for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  • Uncooked apple turnovers can be frozen for later baking. This is especially convenient for smaller air fryers, as you can bake two at a time. Bake two now and freeze the remaining two for later use.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
