Breakfast is probably one of the meals I dread to make the most. Why is that? I think it’s because I get in the french toast, pancakes, cereal oatmeal rut and begin to think that breakfast is a boring necessity. Plus, it messes up my clean kitchen!

However, I look forward to serving these turnovers for breakfast. They literally take me only minutes to make and my kids are thoroughly impressed. They love watching me fold the puff pastry and make small indentations with the knife. They also jump in and help glaze the turnovers. Breakfast is anything but boring when these apple turnovers are on the menu!

Poor hubby. He’s not normally fast enough to grab the sweet treats I make from time to time. After he finished two turnovers, he asked for more. I told them they were all gone, but I could make him some more. He didn’t want to make me go through the trouble, but he really wanted some more turnovers. I told him it really wasn’t much trouble! He was pleasantly surprised that I made these in just a few minutes and baked them for only 20 minutes. My family loves to hear that news because that means mom has another yummy recipe that she can whip up when we are stretched for time.

Don’t you love meals and treats that use five ingredients or less? Me too. I couldn’t wait to get these up on the website! I wanted to make some mom’s breakfast menu a little bit more fun and easy. But, hey! You don’t have to make these just for breakfast, you can serve them as snacks or desserts. Haven’t seen someone turn down an awesome turnover yet!

Stay tuned because there are lots more yummy turnover recipes on the way!

3 Ingredient Easy Apple Turnovers


  • 2 puffed pastry sheets, thawed
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup vanilla glaze


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place puffed pastry sheets on clean, dry surface. Cut each pastry sheet into four squares.
  3. Place one tablespoon of applesauce on one half of the square.
  4. Fold over from corner to corner into a triangle shape, and press edges together to seal. Place turnovers on an ungreased baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between them.
  5. If desired, crimp edges with fork.
  6. Cut three small indentations on the thickest part of the turnover to resemble small apple pies.
  7. Brush with one beaten egg, if desired.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes.
  9. When golden brown and puffed up, remove from oven and drizzle vanilla glaze on top using the prongs of a fork.
  10. If you desire to make your own glaze, simple whisk together, 1 cup powdered sugar, 3 Tablespoons of milk, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. Enjoy!

  1. hi Alison,
    Can’t wait to try this recipe. I was wondering, could you use a can of apple pie fillilng instead of the applesauce to make these yummy turnovers? And what about subbing with some different fruit preserves…..peach, fig…etc…..?


    1. I make these all the time, using cans of apple and cherry pie filling. The apple takes a little longer to cook than the cherry. I top with some powdered sugar mixed with milk and almond extract to make an icing. Very good! I bake the apple at 425 for about 25-30 minutes.
