apple cranberry turnovers


apple & cranberry is one of my favourite flavour combinations in desserts. i love the sweetness from the apples & the tartness from the cranberries. this recipe features tenderflake's frozen puff pastry sheet, so it whips up in a flash! puff pastry is something i don't make myself because when the store bought kind taste so good, why put yourself through that kind of stress over the holidays. all you have to do is roll out the sheet, add the filling & bake! how easy is that?

p.s. enjoy one of my first blog post recipe videos!!! it was so fun to put together, so heres to more videos in 2018. to make it easier for you though, here is the recipe written below too. xo

happy baking!


  • 2 large apples, peeled & diced
  • 3/4 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 box tenderflake's puff pastry sheet, thawed


  • in a large mixing bowl toss together the apples, cranberries, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract, cornstarch & cinnamon.

  • transfer to a sauce pot and cook over medium heat until apples soften, about 5 minutes. set aside to cool.

  • roll out puff pastry & cut into six squares.

  • add a spoon full of filling to the center.
