Author Notes: This recipe is my fall favorite. Puff pastry seemed the perfect vehicle in which to make it all come together. This rendition was inspired by a recipe I found for a fruit turnover. Fresh figs pair perfectly with grapes in my humble opinion, so the idea was born to work this into a delicious, flaky treat. I drizzle honey over the turnovers when they are hot out of the oven, which is purely optional. ashleypiersonchasesdinner

Serves 8

  • 1 package frozen puff pastry
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
  • 10 firm ripe fresh figs, stems trimmed, quartered and cut into 1/2 inch chunks
  • 1 cup seedless red grapes, halved crosswise
  • 1 large egg, seperated
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Thaw puff pastry in package at room temperature 15 to 20 minutes; carefully unwrap. Keep 1 square of pastry refrigerated while working with the other. Roll pastry on lightly floured wax paper from center into a 10-inch square. Cut into 4 equal squares. Repeat with second sheet.
  3. Combine sugar and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Mix until combined completely.
  4. Add figs and grapes, and gently stir until blended.
  5. Place egg white in a small bowl; lightly beat. Place egg yolk and milk in a second bowl, and lightly beat until blended. Working with 4 squares of pastry at a time, lightly brush egg white along edges of 2 adjacent sides of each square. Spoon about 1/3 cup sugared fruit onto 1 side of pastry. Fold over to make triangles, and press edges to secure. Repeat with remaining pastry.
  6. Place turnovers on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  7. Lightly brush tops with egg yolk mixture.
  8. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
  9. Cool on a wire rack or drizzle with honey and serve warm.
