Units Scale
  • 3 Puff Pastry Sheet, thawed
  • 45 small Gala Apples, peeled and diced
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. apple cider
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 c. pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 c. pecan pieces
  • 1/2 tbsp. water
  • cinnamon sugar for sprinkling
  • 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/2 tbsp. milk
  • 1/2 tsp, maple extract
  • pinch of salt


  1. Using a medium saucepan on medium-high heat, melt 4 tbsp. butter. Once the butter has melted add the diced apples and allow to cook for 5-7 minutes (the apples will release its liquid and you want to wait until it reduces, about 5-7 minutes). Next, add the apple cider, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Stir and allow to caramelize for about another 5-7minutes. The mixture should be nice and thick. Set aside and allow to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, 1 egg, and a pinch of salt. On a lightly floured surface, unfold the puff pastry, and lay it flat on a surface. Cut into four squares and separate them for easy use. Take a spoonful of the pumpkin mixture and spread over the puff pastry square; take a spoonful of apple mixture and spread over the pumpkin mix; lastly, sprinkle with pecans.
  4. Fold the turnovers where one corner of the turnover meets the other corner making a triangle shape. Place on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Spray with baking spray.
  5. Whisk the other egg and water and brush the mixture on top of the turnovers. If desired, sprinkle the tops with a little cinnamon sugar. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and puffed.
  6. While the turnovers are baking, make the glaze by adding powdered sugar, melted butter, milk, maple extract, and a pinch of salt. Mix and cover with plastic wrap until ready to use. Once the turnovers are cooled, drizzle with glaze and allow to set and serve!
