These flaky wonders are a hand-held spin on apple pie. Cover the phyllo pastry with a damp tea towel to prevent the remaining sheets from drying as you assemble the turnovers.

  • Prep time 35 minutes
  • Total time 45 minutes
  • Portion size 8 servings


  • 3 cups diced cored peeled baking apples (such as Braeburn, Northern Spy or Golden Delicious)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 4 sheets frozen phyllo pastry , thawed
  • 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Filling: In nonstick skillet, melt 2 tbsp butter over medium heat; cook apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and 3 tbsp water, stirring occasionally, until apples are softened and liquid is thickened, about 8 minutes. Let cool completely.

Pastry: In small bowl, melt 1/3 cup butter. Place 1 sheet of the phyllo on work surface with 1 long end facing you; keep remainder covered with damp towel (to prevent drying out). Brush phyllo with some of the butter; top with second sheet of phyllo. Cut crosswise into quarters; spoon rounded 2 tbsp of the apple mixture onto bottom corner of each. Working with one-quarter at a time, fold bottom corner upward and sideways to line up bottom edge with side edge, cover filling and form triangle; continue folding bottom corner upward and sideways to end of strip. Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets and all but 1 tsp of the butter.

Arrange, 1 inch apart, on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheets. Brush tops with remaining butter; sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 425°F oven until golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
