Apple Coconut Turnovers are the perfect treat in this chilled weather. Flakey puff pastries stuffed with apple and coconut flakes spiked with warm cinnamon. The dark coffee glaze drizzled on on top is the best part in today’s recipe. The bittersweet glaze beautifully balances the flavors. The glaze is my latest favorite. This drizzle works like charm on cinnamon rolls too.
I can’t stress enough how important is the coconut flakes and the bittersweet coffee glaze in this recipe. These two components make these turnovers just amazing. If you like you can throw in some toasted nuts into the stuffing as well.
Here in Bangalore, we don’t get frozen puff pastry easily. Recently during my visit to nearest super market saw some frozen sheets and I quickly grabbed them. Since then it was lying in my freezer. We celebrated Dussehra and Diwali but each festival is associated with its own traditional food spread. So I really didn’t get any chance to use those pastry sheets.
It was a long weekend for us because of Diwali. Cleaning, making snacks for friends, cooking up a feast for family, bursting crackers and finally partying. It was so much of fun, I really didn’t want the holiday to get over. It was like a marathon in the kitchen for last three days. Post-Diwali was seriously a day of rest for me. I just sat and watched Netflix.
But if you really know me, then you would know that I can’t be away from the kitchen for too long.I really get impatient if I don’t enter my kitchen for more than a day or two. So yesterday finally baked with the frozen puff pastries. These little turnovers are a perfect little way to indulge on a cold chilled evening. Paired with a steamy cup coffee and a favorite book.
