There are 2 pastry sheets in each box. Unfold one sheet and cut it into fourths. Each square will make one turnover.  Repeat with the second pastry sheet.

With a pastry brush (or your fingers) , brush some water on two edges of the pastry for a "glue" - like seal.  Fold over each little square to form a triangle.

Step 7: Seal turnover

Use a fork to seal the edges tight so the pie filling will not ooze out while baking.

Step 8: Vent

Cut three vent holes in the middle of the pastry. Don't go all the way through, only pierce the top layer of the pastry.

Step 9: Position on cookie sheet

Place the turnovers on the parchment lined cookie sheet and leave about 1" margin between them.

Repeat the process using the second box of Puff Pastry.  When making 16 turnovers with two boxesof Puff Pastry, the whole can of pie filling will be used up - just the perfect amount.

Cool word "appelflap" , sounds better than apple turnovers. Oh, I have a Dutch friend and this is what he says ; "If you ain't Dutch, you ain't much"...ha ha : )

I made these this evening...OMG! They're amazing!! I had some trouble with the consistency of the glaze, but it didn't matter. Warm apple turnovers with french vanilla ice cream.... Definitely going to make them again!

I'm really glad you made them! Makes it worth it to post it when people actually try it. I know, the glaze is kinda tricky... you gotta start with just a scant amount of liquid added to the powdered sugar, and if that's not enough, add a teaspoon at a time. Too much liquid will quickly make the glaze into soup. The first time (years ago) when I messed with glaze, I went through many boxes of powdered sugar to get the right consistancy. The trick is to start with just a small amount of liquid. If you get it right, you can make a lot of baked goods look more yummy with a cool glaze. You can make a choc. glaze by adding a little powdered choc. to your sugar. Post pictures of what you made. I'd love to see 'em. Thanks....
