A Sweet Treat for Kids to Make
This Apricot Turnover Recipe is great for kids to make as it is a very quick and easy recipe to follow and a sweet treat for the kids to enjoy, for breakfast or a mid morning snack.
Using ready made pastry is ideal when baking with kids but your could make your own puff pastry if you want to really impress your guests.
This recipe is also great because it only uses 3 ingredients which is a real benefit when cooking with kids and for your purse, most of us have these ingredients in our freezer and store cupboards so a good dish to cook on a rainy day.
This recipe will serve 4 people and takes 10 minutes to prepare and 15-20 minutes to cook, if you have someone who does not like apricot you could also make a variation uisng strawberry or raspberry conserve.
225g Ready-Made Puff Pastry, thawed if frozen
4 Tbsps Apricot Conserve
2 Tbsps Icing (Confectioners’) Sugar, for dusting
Pre-heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas Mark 5.
Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 25cm/10in square.
Using a sharp knife, cut the pastry into four 13cm/5in squares.
Place a tablespoon of the apricot conserve in the middle of each square of pastry.
Brush the edges of the pastry with cold water and fold each square over to form a triangle.
Press the edges together to seal and transfer onto a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until risen and golden.
Remove to a wire rack to cool, the dust with the icing sugar.
