FAQ

Can I freeze turnovers?

Place the turnovers on a baking sheet in a single layer and freeze until solid. Then store for up to two months in a freezer bag or an airtight container.

Turnovers can be cooked immediately after being taken out of the freezer. It will take a few more minutes for them to bake.

Tips for the perfect air fryer turnovers

Remove puff pastry from the freezer when ready to make.

Thaw puff pastry until it is just moveable – be careful to not over-thaw, or the pastry will fall apart. Thawing should take about 10-15 minutes or so.

Only use a tablespoon of pie filling and do not over-fill.

Add icing after the turnovers have completely cooled.
