20 Minute Apple Pie Turnovers are made with buttery and easy to work with crescent roll dough and a quickly sauteed apple. This recipe is perfect for breakfast, brunch, or even a fall dessert.
Apple Pie Turnovers? Yes, please! I love some pastries but do not have any good bakeries nearby!
Truthfully, working with pasty dough is not my specialty. Like at all. In fact, I have been known to easily get my hands wrapped up in dough and create horrific, horrible masses of dough that could likely break something if propelled.
That is why I stick with crescent roll dough as a base for many of my pastries such as our pumpkin cinnamon rolls. If I dared to make my pastry dough from scratch, I could almost imagine my yeast rising up so much that it took over the counters, and kitchen like a giant blob.
Sad, but true.
That is why I am a firm believer in using crescent roll dough to make pastries, and savory meals like pigs in the blanket or ham and cheese crescents.
Honestly, using crescent dough can save you TONS of time in the kitchen and you never have to worry about mixing flours, waiting for yeast to rise, and all that baking headachy stuff.
When I am in the kitchen baking or cooking I like to multitask to save time and effort. These 20 Minute Apple Pie Turnovers are all about multitasking and timing things right.
With a cook time of about 15 minutes, these apple turnovers are my kind of fall pastry. The drizzle of slightly crusty glaze takes them from good to hard to resist with just a little more effort as the pies bake.
