Finally, here is my final recipe in the Halloween recipe series: cinnamon apple pockets, made out of puff pastry, made to look like wizard hats. I hope they do look like wizard hats. To me they do look like wizard hats, but it might be my wishful thinking because I’ve been staring at them for too long.

How to make cinnamon apple turnovers:


Prep time: 20 min


  • 1 puff pastry sheet, defrosted but not too soft
  • 1 apple, peeled and cored
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • additional sugar and cinnamon for sprinkling

(makes about 9 or 10 turnovers)

1) Preheat oven to 415 F.

2) Cut puff pastry sheet into 3 equal rectangles along the fold lines of the pastry (as you know the pastry is folded in 3 parts, so just separate those three). Cut each rectangle into 8 or 9 triangles.

3) Chop apple finely, mix with brown sugar and cinnamon. Let apples sit to get juicy.

4) To make each wizard hat: place 1 triangle on foil or parchment paper. Fill with a little bit of chopped apples. Place another rectangle on top, seal the edges with your fingers. Elongate the top portion of the “hat” and bend it to the side. Fold bottom portions of the triangles up to form a hat brim. Brush the top portion of each hat with egg wash. Sprinkle hats with cinnamon and sugar.

    What a cute idea for a festive treat! Easy enough to make at the very last minute too, which is wonderful since that’s always how my Halloween celebrations end up coming together.
