I have been using this recipe for a while now and my husband and I just love them. I use splenda because my husband is diabetic.

I made these and they are great. My husband is diabetic so I used splenda. We both love them so I made 8. Going to make them again this weekend.

That's great, we're so glad you enjoyed the recipe. Have you ever visited our diabetic site?

Method using splenda for making fresh apple turnovers.

Quick easy and delicious and.. I have made these many times using pie crust dough (homemade and store bought) I also use canned biscuits rolled out for the dough They are all great

I love this recipe! They're warm, light, and flaky which I think makes the perfect wintertime treat. You must try this easy apple turnover recipe!

When did the Amish start using puff pastry??

Amish families shop at Walmart, Target and many of the stores where Catholic, Protestant and Jewish families shop.

I made these and was almost as good as my Mothers who made them from scratch. She mostly made apricot and chocolate

Oops, I forgot to add that I get 8 turnovers from a can of fruit pie filling....

My hubby went crazy over these! I've used this apple recipe, and canned pie filling in every flavor they make, and they are all excellent. I did add a bit of brown sugar to the apple recipe. I have learned to dust the cutting board with a little confectioners sugar so that the dough doesn't stick to it when you are moving the turnovers to the baking pan. That works much better than waxed paper, parchment paper, or just the plain cutting board. Thanks Mr. Food for another awesome recipe!

Thank you! So glad to hear you both loved this recipe! :)

I made these and their GREAT ! & Easy to make ......

Made a double batch (used the while package of pastry) and had dessert Saturday and an easy fast breakfast on Sunday. All 3 of us loved them!

They look scrumptious! I'm going to add more BUTTER!

I made these and they are great and so easy. Better double the recipe as they disappeared fast.

I made these turnovers. So easy. They were great and my husband loves them. I doubled the recipe and made eight of them. They were gone the same day. Thank you.


They look and sound wonderful. I love turnovers.
