Ingredients for Delicious Apple Turnovers in the Ninja Air Fryer

  • Apples: Sweet and juicy filling that adds a fruity flavor and texture to the turnovers, a classic choice for pastries.
  • Sugar: Adds sweetness to the apple filling, balancing the tartness of the apples and enhancing the overall flavor profile.
  • Cinnamon: Provides warm and aromatic spice to the apple filling, creating a cozy and comforting taste in the turnovers.
  • Lemon juice: Adds a hint of tanginess to the apple filling, brightening the flavors and preventing the apples from browning.
  • Puff pastry: Flaky and buttery pastry that encases the apple filling, creating a crispy and golden-brown shell for the turnovers.
  • Egg: Brushed on top of the turnovers before baking, it helps achieve a shiny and golden crust, enhancing the visual appeal.
  • Powdered sugar: Sprinkled on top of the turnovers after baking, adding a touch of sweetness and a decorative finish to the pastries.

  • Bowl: To mix the diced apples with sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice for the filling.
