Crispy Apple-Raisin Turnovers

Submitted by: Charlie Trotter

Crispy filo provides the perfect crust for these apple-raisin filled turnovers.


  • Serving Size: 1 turnover


  • 1 cup peeled and sliced Granny Smith apples
  • 1 cup California raisins, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 sheets filo dough
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350°F.

For filling, cut each apple slice crosswise into thirds and place in small bowl with raisins; toss with lemon juice until well coated. Drain excess juice and toss again with flour and cinnamon.

Then, lay a sheet of filo on a flat surface; brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons powdered sugar. Top with another sheet of filo and repeat until all filo is used; brush top sheet with butter but do not sprinkle with sugar. Cut into 8 strips each 3 inches wide. One strip at a time, turn entire strip over and place some filling mixture at one end; pull a bottom corner up diagonally to form a triangle, folding the bottom edge upward over the filling until even with the side of the strip. Continue folding in triangles, alternating direction, to the end of the filo strip. Repeat for remaining strips.

Arrange on baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot or cooled as snack or appetizer.
