The perfect after-school snack: Mini apple turnovers

These mini-apple turnovers are packed with things we love about fall baking: crisp apples, flaky pastry, and lots of cinnamon!

These are quite easy to make, and if you make several batches of them, they can be stored in the fridge and reheated in the microwave for snacks during the week. They can also be packed in plastic containers in lunch boxes, as they won't spoil during the day. 

Plus, they're incredibly delicious!

Mini apple turnovers:


1 large apple, like Granny Smith or Gala, cut into 8 equal slices

1 can crescent roll dough (8 rolls per can)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons butter, melted


1. Preheat oven to 375, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Separate the crescent roll dough into 8 separate pieces 
3. Mix the brown sugar with the cinnamon in a small bowl, and sprinkle it generously on each triangle of dough.
4. Place an apple slice on the bottom of the triangle, and drizzle or brush with a bit of melted butter. Roll the apple in the dough, toward the pointed end.
5. Brush the resulting turnover with more of the melted butter. When all eight are complete, bake for about 10 minutes, until golden brown.
