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!



  • 117.3 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


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)

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

Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper

Remove one sheet of  puff pasty 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

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

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
