Apricot Turnovers

This light and airy dessert is filled with apricots and has a delicate crispy crunch.

SERVING SIZE

serves 4-8

INGREDIENTS

5 apricots, pitted and sliced into ¼-inch wedges

2 tablespoons sugar or honey

1 teaspoon almond extract

1 lemon, zested and juiced

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 sheet puff pastry (14 ½ by 9 ½ inches), thawed

1 egg, beaten with a tablespoon of water

2 tablespoons powdered sugar for dusting

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, toss the apricots with the sugar or honey, almond extract, lemon zest, lemon juice and cornstarch until well combined. Set aside until the natural juices start to release, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, put the puff pastry sheet on a floured surface and gently roll out any uneven edges.

Cut the pastry into four large squares. Brush each square with the egg wash. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the apricots onto the center of each square, on top of the egg wash side. Pull one side over into a triangle, stretching it over the fruit. Press the dough together, then use a fork to press along the edges to seal.

Brush each turnover on top with the egg wash, then poke the top center of each turnover with a fork.

Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet for about 20 minutes, or until the turnovers are puffy and golden brown.

Cool slightly and dust with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
