Ingredients

Main Ingredients

  • 1 sheet  Puff pastry
  • 4 Apples large
  • 4 tbsp Sugar plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1 tbsp All purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon and Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Raisins and almonds

Instructions

Prepare Apples

  • Peel, core and slice the apples into cubes.
  • Add a pinch of salt and lemon juice.
  • Followed by the sugar and the spices
  • Lastly add the flour, raisins, and almonds
  • Cover with cling wrap and let sit for 10 minutes
  • After 10 minutes drain the liquid
  • Pour the liquid in a saucepan and cook it until thick 
  • Add back to the apple and mix well.

Prepare Puff Pastry

  • Preheat the oven at 200 C/ 400 F
  • Open the chilled puff pastry on a floured surface
  • Roll into a rectangle about the size of a sheet pan 13 x 9 (approximately)
  • Fold the puff pastry sheet into three lengthways so it will give you three panels. The center panel will hold the filling and the sides will be flipped over.
  • Place the apple mixer in the center evenly.
  • on both the side panels - cut strips at an angle with a sharp knife about an inch each.
  • Then carefully flip the strip from the side panels over the center panel alternating from either side as shown in the progress pictures
  • The two extra flaps on the top and bottom of the center panel can either be tucked in or cut off. I prefer to tuck them below the strips.

Bake the turn over

  • Brush the pastry with egg wash and
  • Sprinkle white granulated sugar
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 to 35 minutes until the top is crisp and golden brown.
  • When baked cool in the pan for 10 minutes
  •  Use a long pallet knife or spatula to move the long pastry so it won't break.
  • Serve at room temperature or warm -  just on its own or with a dollop of ice cream.
