Fruit turnovers

I based these on a good food recipe for apple and blueberry turnovers that I will try making again in the autumn as they’re quite autumnal. The idea is pretty basic, cooked fruit in puff pastry, and you can then vary it with your own choice of fruit. I made peach and cardamom which were amazing. I used the majority of a punnet of peaches and the seeds of about 6 cardamom pods, but it could have taken more. We ate these for a yummy breakfast picnic. They aren’t very filling though and they come in at around 300 calories, so be careful when you have them, you don’t want to be starving later!

1 roll of ready rolled puff pastry (these seem to be sold in pairs)
Fruit of your choice

Prepare your fruit. Chop and put into a pan with butter, sugar and spice if needed
Cook until softened (about 10 mins)
Leave until it cools a bit, and gets stickier and more solid. This stops it being too wet when you put it in the pastry cases.
Open up the pastry and cut into 6 equal squares
Put a line of fruit filling diagonally down each pastry square
Brush the 2 empty corners with milk and pull into the centre (the milk helps it stick)
Brush the top with milk and sprinkle with sugar
Bake in oven for about 20-30 mins until brown and puffed up

These are great for picnics and definitely seem autumnal to me!
