  • 1 pack puff pastry
  • 150g apples, cored, peeled & chopped into small cubes
  • 150g blackberries
  • 115g brown sugar
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2tbsp cornflour
  • 2tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 eggs, beaten
  • Sugar, to sprinkle


Tart apples work best for this quick pastry recipe, but feel free to use your favourite variety.

  1. Add all of the filling ingredients to a large saucepan and cook on medium heat, stirring until all of the sugar dissolves. Simmer gently for 10 minutes until the apples are softened. Take off the heat and allow to cool.
  2. Roll out the chilled pastry onto a lightly floured surface into a large rectangle, approximately the thickness of a pound coin, then cut into four.
  3. Fill half of each square with the filling, then brush the edges with the beaten egg.
  4. Fold the top right point of the square to meet the bottom left point and seal the edges with a fork. Cut 3 small slits in the top of each to allow steam to escape.
  5. Place on a lined baking sheet and chill for 15 minutes. While they’re chilling, preheat the oven to 190c / 375f / gas mark 5.
  6. Remove the turnovers from the fridge and brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 30 mins until golden brown.

Chef’s Tip
If blackberries aren’t available, use extra apple or a different seasonal fruit instead.
