Henny Peach Turnovers

So as I’m here eating these Henny Peach Turnovers and getting crumbs everywhere! I had to share this recipe. Peach season is almost over so I grabbed a few at the Farmers Market and wanted to elevate the sweetness of the peach! Had a bottle of some Hennessey and a few spices plus some puff pastry. Perfect combination of sweet guilt. I wish I had some brown sugar and next time I might add some fresh herbs. Have fun making these!

Henny Peach Turnovers

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • 4 peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1tbsp pumpkin spice
  • 1tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cognac
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions

  1. Start by making sure your puff pastry is thawed. Follow instructions on box! Go ahead and place your peaches, sugar and pumpkin spice in a pot over medium high heat.
  2. Cook for about 4 minutes, stirring so your sugar won't burn. Add your cognac*, stir and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Start smashing your peaches but not too mushy. Your mixture should be thick.
  4. Add your water and cook for about 6-8 minutes. You want your peaches to break down easily.**
  5. Most of your water should be gone. Turn off heat, set aside and cool.
  6. Mean time preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Roll out your puff pastry and cut out squares.
  7. Once your peach mixture cooled, add a spoonful in the middle of your puff pastry. Don't do that to all of them leave the other half empty to cover the mixture.
  8. Take the empty puff pastry to cover the mixture. Press a fork on the sides to close it and cut a slit in the middle. Sprinkle with sugar.
  9. Pop in your 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.
  10. I broiled them for a few for a slight browning and to caramelize the sugars.
  11. Enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or alone!
  12. *You can add more if you need to
  13. **Add more water if it evaporates too fast
