  1. step

    Prep puff pastry & egg wash

    • You can bake only 6 turnovers at a time. Assemble full batch of 12 turnovers. Bake the first batch of 6, reserving remaining 6 in refrigerator.
    • Roll out puff pastry into a 12-by-15-inch rectangle; place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
    • In small bowl, combine eggs, egg yolk and a pinch of salt; beat with fork until blended. Let stand at room temperature.

  2. step

    Make filling

    • Peel and core apples.
    • Cut two-thirds of apples into ½-inch pieces. Cut remaining apples into ¼-inch slices.
    • In medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together diced apples, sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons water.
    • Cook, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved and mixture begins to thicken, about 8 minutes.
    • Remove from heat and stir in sliced apples; cool completely before filling turnovers.

  3. step

    Assemble turnovers

    • Cut puff pastry into 12 rectangles, each 3¾ by 4 inches.
    • Place ½ oz cheddar in center of each rectangle; top with apple filling, dividing evenly.
    • Fold pastry in half to form smaller rectangles. Press edges firmly with fingers or fork to seal.
    • Using fork, poke tops of turnovers a few times to prevent them from overflowing.

  4. step

    Slide metal tray into bottom oven shelf

    • Place 6 turnovers, evenly spaced apart, in Zones 1, 2 and 3 of Brava metal tray.
    • Press green button to begin preheating.
    • Note: You will insert food once preheat completes.
    • Using pastry brush, brush tops of turnovers with egg wash.
    • When Brava is preheated, slide metal tray into bottom shelf. Press green button again to begin baking.

  5. step


    • When your food is done, transfer turnovers to wire rack or plate and cool for 10–15 minutes before serving.
    • Bake second batch of turnovers or refrigerate for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to 3 months.
