WHAT ARE TURNOVERS?
Turnovers are a delightful pastry that typically have a fruit filling of some kind inside.
They are made with a dough that has a filling inside and is folded over, sealed and then baked or fried. Another name for turnovers is hand pies because they are easy to hold in your hand and eat.
You can also make a savory turnover that could contain meat like with an empanada.

HOW TO MAKE EASY AIR FRYER APPLE TURNOVERS
Making these turnovers in the air fryer ends up with a lightly crispy turnover that is just plain delicious.
STEP ONE: ROLL OUT PASTRY DOUGH
The first step is to roll out the puff pastry dough sheets on a non-stick surface.
Next you will cut the pastry dough into squares. It is easy to just use a knife to do this or a pizza cutter also works quickly.
You should get 9 squares for each sheet of puff pastry dough.
STEP TWO: FILL SQUARES
Now you want to spoon some apple filling into the corner of the pastry dough squares.
Repeat until you have put some filling on every pastry dough square.
STEP THREE: FOLD PASTRY
It is time to fold over each dough square so that you get a triangle.
Use a fork to press down and seal the edges. It is important to seal the edges so the filling doesn't leak out during the cooking process.
STEP FOUR: AIR FRY
If your air fryer requires preheating go ahead and preheat it to 350° F.
Lightly spray the air fryer basket with olive oil spray.
Place the apple turnovers in the air fryer basket or on an air fryer oven rack in a single layer so that they are not touching. You may have to cook these in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
Lightly spray the tops of the turnovers with olive oil spray. This will help them crisp up.
Air fry for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Remember that each air fryer cooks a little bit differently and it is a good idea to keep an eye on your food to make sure it doesn't overcook.
