These are tasty little treats that I am sure could be made with apples, or any fruit of choice. Maybe even a apple, pecan/walnut, brwn sugar, clove cinnamon type mixture. I had a bought puff pastry left over so I used it.....I am in the process of trying to find a good puff pastry recipe so I can make it my self.....anybody got one?
2 Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastries (1 box)
3 cups of Mangoes cut in tiny cubes
1/8 cup flour (exact)
1/8 cup sugar (over flowing)
1 teaspoon bourbon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Couple extra pinches of sugar (for tops)
little dish of water
1 egg yolk
2 TB water
-Take puff pastry out of freezer and let thaw on counter for 40 minutes.
-As pastry is unthawing, prepare mango mixture in a bowl by stirring all ingredients together.
-Unfold and lay out puff pastries one at a time.
-Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the puff pastries into quarters in the shape of squares.
-Spoon a heaping 1/8 cup of mango mixture into one side of each square.
-Push mangoes around with your fingers so you know it is evenly distributed into the pointed ends.
-Dip finger in water and wet edges of half of the pastry.
-Fold and seal the pastry.
-Use a fork to make pretty edges, and also to double check the water seal.
-Poke with knife in the top like pies
-Put turnovers in fridge on a Pam sprayed cookie sheet to chill for a bit while you preheat the oven to 375 degrees
-Once the oven is preheated, remove the turnovers from the fridge and brush with egg wash, sprinkle with sugar, and pop in oven for 20 minutes.
-Remove from oven, remove from cookie sheet, and place on cooling rack.
-Serve warm or cooled.
-If preferred warm, toaster oven them later in the day rather than microwave.
-I couldn't taste the bourbon at all, but they were great without the bourbon taste. If you are looking for the bourbon taste, you may want to add more bourbon.
