Over the weekend, Meg announced to me that she had made up a new recipe and that she wanted to cook it. As she explained it,”you get fruit and wrap it in pastry like an envelope”.
Not wanting to squash her by telling her about the concept of turnovers, I let her show me how to make them.
Fruit Turnovers – By Meg
2 sheets puff pastry
4 nectarines (or other fruit such as apple, pear, peach, plum, or apricot)
1. Cut each sheet of puff pastry into 4 squares.
2. Cut the nectarine into quarters and remove the stone.
3. Place 2 pieces of nectarine in the centre of each pastry square.
4. Sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar over the fruit.
5. Fold the corners into the centre of each square.
6. Place on a baking tray lined with paper.
7. Repeat until all envelopes are completed.
8. Brush each envelope with a little milk and sprinkle with some cinnamon.
9. Bake for 12 minutes at 200*c
Meg served them very proudly with ice cream for dessert. They went down very well.
