Caramel Apple Turnovers(Recipe from ComfortofCooking)
Makes 8 turnovers
For caramelized apples:
2 apples (any kind)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
¼ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 can (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent roll dough or seamless dough sheet
1 large egg
2 tablespoons water
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
8 tablespoons white sugar
4 tablespoons water
To caramelize apples:
Core and slice the apples into ¼-inch thick slices. In a large skillet, heat butter until it is bubbling. Add the apple slices to the skillet and continue to cook over medium-high heat for approximately 5 minutes, or until apples soften and begin to brown. Turn several times to brown evenly. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar, and continue to cook until sugar has melted and started to caramelize. Apple slices should be tender. Set pan aside.
To assemble turnovers:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Separate the crescent roll dough into 4 rectangles, then press the perforations together to seal. Cut each rectangle in half to make squares (8 squares in total). If the pieces are not quite square, gently stretch them into shape. If using a seamless dough sheet, cut into 8 squares.
Beat together the egg and water, and brush each square with the mixture.
If using, place 3-4 caramelized apples on one corner-half of each square. Fold the other half of the dough over the filling to form a triangle. Use your fingers or a fork to seal the edges together. Brush the tops with the egg mixture and sprinkle a pinch of nutmeg over each turnover.
