There are appetizers...  and then there are these Pumpkin Apple Turnovers with Everything Bagel Seasoning. Crunchy on the outside, velvety and buttery on the inside, topped with everything bagel seasoning for a punch of flavor.  A heavenly bite of goodness!


  • 1- 17.3 ounce pack of frozen puff pastry (2 sheets), thawed in the refrigerator
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 apple, diced small (1 1/2 cups diced)
  • 1 small onion, diced small (3/4 cup diced)
  • 2 cups canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 unsweetened non dairy milk
  • 4 tablespoons everything bagel seasoning


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the apples and onions and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of water and continue cooking until the apples are tender and the water has evaporated, stirring often (this should take 10-15 minutes, depending on the type of apple. If they are not tender after that time, add more water and continue cooking for a few more minutes)
  2. Add the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt and continue cooking for another 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool
  3. Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
  4. Remove one sheet of puff pastry from the refrigerator (leave the other one in). Gently roll the pastry on a floured surface with a rolling pin to form a 9" x 12" rectangle. Cut it into 12- 3 x 3 squares
  5. Place about 1 tablespoon of pumpkin filling on the bottom half of each square.  Fold over and seal the seams using a fork (Watch the video above ). Arrange them about 1/2 inch apart on the lined baking sheet
  6. Brush each boureka with non-dairy milk and sprinkle everything bagel seasoning on top. Bake for 20 minutes or until puffed and golden. Repeat the process again with the other sheet of puff pastry


  1. When you prepare the filling, make sure to cook the apples until they are nice and tender. Depending on the type of apple you're using, the cooking time will vary.
  2. Folding the pumpkin apple turnovers might seem like a daunting task, but it's really easy!
  3.  You will probably end up with some leftover filling. Spread it on warm toast or use it to top pancakes, French toast, yogurt or even your morning oatmeal.
  4.  These pumpkin apple turnovers taste the best when freshly baked.  They can be made ahead, frozen, and baked right before serving. Remember that they will require a few extra minutes in the oven! Just watch them carefully, because they can go from done to burnt in no time.
