Easy Homemade Apple Turnover Recipe

This homemade apple turnover recipe is so easy and delicious that you’ll be tempted to try to make it with lots of other fruits! This recipe is a great way to use apples or other summer leftovers!

Easy Turnovers(apple, peach, cherry or blueberry)

1 can of apple pie filling*
1 tsp. of apple pie spice (or 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg and cloves)*
1 can of refrigerator biscuits
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) margarine, melted
1/2 cup sugar with 1-2 tsp. cinnamon (combined)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add the apple pie spice to the fruit filling. Using a knife, slice apple slices in the can into small chunks. (I add the spices into the can and press the apples against the can with the knife to cut them to avoid dirtying a bowl.)

Flatten the biscuits with a rolling pin or your hand into 4″ circles. Add 1 slightly rounded Tbsp. of pie filling into the center of each biscuit. Wet edges of biscuit with milk. Fold in half and seal well. Prick tops with fork. Dip in melted butter and then into sugar and cinnamon mix. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes or until brown.

* When using the other flavored fillings, you can leave out the apple pie spices. You can add other spices from your favorite pie recipe if you prefer, like a pinch of cinnamon to the peach or almond flavoring for the cherry pie. You don’t have to add anything if you don’t want.

Variation: Add raisins to the pie filling and/or serve with cheddar cheese.

    These look great. I think I will make them for Labor Day breakfast. I will get to stay in my jammies, and have a leisurely, yummy breakfast with one of these.

    I made peach turnovers last weekend and they were great. It was nice to have a cooler weekend weatherwise, and a yummy breakfast to eat. Simple pleasures.

      I usually make mine with the small most inexpensive biscuits as a matter of fact the recipe was written before there was such a thing as large biscuits in a can.You can use the large or small and just adjust the amount of pie filling you put in them. The only thing about the large is you will have more “bread” part to filling plus the small make a very nice and perfect serving size.

    I forgot about this recipe. I’m hungry for something with apples and this looks so good. Probably will make very soon.

      You can but you will need to mix the fresh apples with the usual ingredients you use for pie filling, then cook it 3-4 mins. in the microwave before putting it in the biscuit circles. This recipe only bakes for about 10-15 mins. and then the biscuits will be brown. That isn’t enough time to cook fresh apples usually.

    Sounds so yummy! I remember the product that Pillsbury made with everything in one box, they were so good, they had both apple and cherry flavors. Right now I have a ton of pears cooked down that did not quite turn into pear preserves. I will have to try this one morning and see how it is.
