Apple Turnovers

Hi, well i have always loved apple turnovers buying them once in a while as a treat however i have never considered making them until i ran across another bog and saw the recipe. so i decided t look around and see what people have said about making them.
And every recipe i found was different some added egg to the middle others walnuts or cinnamon. so from this i decided to create my own recipe using cinnamon to flavour the apples. i also have to admit i did you jus-rolls put pastry however it turned out well they were the perfect consistency between fluffy and flaky and thick and full. i however didn't take into account that they would rise and expand so this made a lot of rather large apple turnovers with just 3/4 of the packet (after this i ran out of apples and baking trays)
so here is my own recipe

6 medium apples
3oz of soft brown sugar
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 packet of jus-roll puff pastry
1 egg

Preheat the oven to 190C/gas mark 5
first of all i peeled cored and finely chopped my apples. i then left them in water and lemon juice before i needed them again (this stops the apples going brown!)

I then mix ted together the sugar and Cinnamon
then i rolled out the pastry into thin squares approx 5mm thick
i then filled one half of the square with the apples
then sprinkle on the  sugar mixture and placed a dot of butter on the top
i then used the egg as a wash over the pastry to help it stay together.
after this i folded the pastry in half to made a triangle and coated it with the egg wash
i then crimped the sides with a fork to keep it together
i then placed them on a  a lined baking tray and placed them into the preheated oven
leave to cook for 25 -30 minutes or until golden brown.
