Serves 9-10 turnovers

2 Granny Smith apples, chopped

2 tablespoons flour

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1½ tablespoons cinnamon

1 pack of 5 large cinnamon rolls

1 egg

Vegetable oil

Cinnamon sugar for coating


Heat 2 inches of vegetable oil in a pot to 350˚F/120˚C.

Pat chopped Granny Smith apples dry with paper towel.

Mix in brown sugar, cinnamon, and 1 tbsp of flour.

Open your cinnamon rolls and reserve icing.

Cut the cinnamon rolls in half and roll out each half into a 2 in x 2 in square. Place a dollop of icing and apple mixture onto the square.

Beat egg in a bowl and brush the sides of the square.

Fold the square into a turnover shape and seal closed with your finger, making sure to get the air out from inside.

Primp the edges with a fork.

Place turnovers into oil and fry for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Toss in cinnamon sugar.

Serve and enjoy!
