National Apple Turnover Day

Today is National Turnover Day. The one place I found out that has the best apple turnovers is either grandmas house or Arbys. Here is your chance to make your self some Homemade apple turnovers. 

Apple Turnovers

2 Tablespoons lemon juice
4 cups water
4 Granny smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 Tablespoon water
1 (17.25 ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Combine the lemon juice and 4 cups water in large bowl. Place the sliced apples in the water to keep them from browning. 
2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Drain water from apples, and place them into the hot skillet. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes. Add brown sugar, and cinnamon, and cook, stirring, for 2 more minutes. Stir together cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Pour into the skillet, and mix well. Cook for another minute, or until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat to cool slightly.
3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F 
4. Unfold puff pastry sheets, and repair any cracks by pressing them back together. Trim each sheet into a square. Then cut each larger square into 4 squares. Spoon apples onto the center of each squares. Fold over from the corner to corner into a triangle shape, and press edges together to seal. Place turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between them .
5. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until turnovers are puffed and lightly browned. Cook completely before glazing.
6. To make Glaze: Mix together the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla in  a small bowl, adjust the thickness by adding more sugar or milk if necessary. Drizzle glaze over the cooled turnovers.
