Apple Turnovers


  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Soak the raisins in the wine until they expand. If you are in a hurry, bring the mixture to a boil in a saucepan.
  • Chop the apples in to very small cubes.
  • Beat the hazelnuts in a food processor, just to roughly chop. Do not finely grind.
  • Drain the raisins from the wine and add them to a bowl. Add the apples and cinnamon and toss.
  • If the apples are too sweet, I suggest you add some lemon zest to the filling. You can also add 1 tablespoon poppy seeds if you like.
  • Cut the phyllo dough in to 3 strips and carefully brush each strip with sunflower oil.  
  • Add 1 tablespoon of filling at the lower end of each strip.
  • Begin folding the phyllo dough over the filling, creating a triangle.
  • Transfer to a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until crunchy and golden.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool a little.
  • Serve drizzled with honey and sprinkled with sesame seeds and lemon zest. (optional.)
