Recipe: Apple + Smoked Gouda Turnovers (revised)

Yesterday was the Cheese + Apple Fest at Midtown Global Market, and I gave a cooking demonstration for my Apple + Smoked Gouda Turnovers. I have revised the recipe a little since I last shared with you, so here is the Apple + Smoked Gouda Turnovers v. 2.0!

Apple + Smoked Gouda Turnovers
makes 2 dozen

2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
3 apples, peeled, cored and diced

1/4lb smoked Gouda, diced

juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/4t salt

1-2t smoked paprika (optional)

1T all-purpose flour

dash of cayenne

chili powder for garnish

small bowl of water
egg wash (1 egg beaten + 2T water)

-preheat oven to 400˚F
-combine apples, lemon juice, Gouda, flour and seasonings in large bowl and mix to coat
-cut puff pastry into squares, 12 for each sheet

-place teaspoon full of apple filling (more if it will fit!) on to your puff pastry squares
-dab fingers in water and run along 2 edges of the puff pastry square (this will help seal the edges)

-fold into a triangle over the filling and crimp edges

-repeat until all are folded

-place on a baking sheet, baste with egg wash and dust tops with chili powder
-bake at 400˚F for about 15-20 minutes or until turnovers are golden brown and flaky
