Apple Coconut Turnovers with Coffee Glaze

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 todays recipe. The bitter sweet glaze beautifully balances the flavours. The glaze is my latest favourite. This drizzle works like charm on cinnamon rolls too.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Roll the puff pastry sheet block to approximately 24X24 cm circle.Cut into small squares. (I got 9 squares.The number of squares will vary depending upon the size of the square).
  • Spoon apple coconut stuffing onto the center of each squares. Fold over from corner to corner into a triangle shape.
  • Apply cornstarch paste along the edges and press edges together using a fork(dipped into flour ) to seal. Place turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between them.
  • Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until turnovers are puffed and lightly browned. Cool completely before glazing.
  • To make the glaze - Brew milk and instant coffee powder for about 1 minute. Once it is cold add confectioners' sugar.Adjust the thickness by adding more sugar or milk if necessary.
  • Drizzle glaze over the cooled turnovers.
