I wouldn't exactly call this a recipe, and it certainly isn't original, but I love it all the same. If you follow me on instagram or facebook, you may have seen that I made a lovely starry pie the other weekend, and these turnovers were made from the leftovers - (I did actually make them a few days later, I just didn't have time to post this - just in case you were thinking I was a touch gross for having made turnovers for my kids from two week old shop bought puff!).

I also had some leftover blackberries in the fridge which were about to go over, and a few windfalls from the apple tree, and it all just screamed turnovers. So I rolled out the pastry as thin as I dared and cut out some big circles.

I peeled and chopped, into smallish dice, one eating apple and half a large bramley and tossed in a handful of blackberries (you could use any berry really).Then I added two tablespoons light muscavado sugar and gave it all a mix.

I spooned some of the apple mixture onto one half of the pastry circles and painted beaten egg around the edges. Then I folded the other half of the pastry over the fruit and made a feeble attempt at crimping the edges together. I personally don't mind a bit of the fruit juices oozing out because it goes all chewy and jammy.

Finally I brushed the top with egg and baked them for 20 minutes at 180c. Yum.
