Apple Turnovers

Christmas has come and gone already , wow time flies too fast.Elder one is still watching Christmas movies on Netflix and singing the same songs .When I asked her she replied it’s still Christmas holidays and she is in the festive mood and can watch throughout the holidays.

I made these turnovers from Food 52 and loved the cooked apples in mild spices and wrapped in the puff pastry topped with glaze.I did not make good slits in the top and that is why some of the turnovers slightly opened from the sides.
