Breakfast in Bed: Homemade Apple Turnovers

There is just something about fall – picking apples & pumpkins, corn mazes, football games…I love it!  I especially love all the great baking that I can do…apple pies, pumpkin pies, and my latest find – apple turnovers!  I originally found the recipe on Pinterest, via Frugal Homekeeping’s blog.


Look at those pretty apples!  My hubby and I went apple picking in early October, and we picked A LOT, so I was searching for creative recipes with apples.  We already have a great apple crisp & apple pie recipe, but didn’t have anything for breakfast…until now!

Easy Apple Turnovers

2 C peeled, finely chopped apples
1/3 C sugar
2 T flour
1/2 t cinnamon (more or less as you like)
dash of nutmeg
2 cans of refrigerated cresent rolls

1/2 C powdered sugar
2-3 t water

Heat oven to 350.  Mix together first 5 ingredients; make sure the apples are well-coated in the mixture.  Separate dough into triangles (should be 16 total).  Spoon a rounded T of apple mixture into the middle of each triangle, and fold all sides up over the filling.  Place them roughly one inch apart on baking sheets.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.  Combine glaze ingredients & drizzle over warm rolls.  Serve & enjoy!!


Don’t they look delicious?!  Definitely going to be a repeat-recipe here at the Rouse House!
