Apple foldovers are apple and pecan filled puff pastry dessert. Prepared with baked pastries, filled with a cooked lemon apple and nut filling, the apple foldovers are best served warm with sugar sprinkled on top.
  Basic puff pastry 1 (1 recipe)
  Egg yolk 1
  Water 1 Teaspoon
  Peeled sliced apples 6 Cup (96 tbs)

  Butter/Margarine 3 Tablespoon, melted
  Lemon juice 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon

Roll pastry into a 17 x 13 inch rectangle.
Cut pastry into 4 inch squares; place squares on ungreased baking sheets.
Combine egg yolk and water; brush edges of pastry with yolk mixture.
Fold each square of pastry into a triangle; press edges of foldovers together with a fork.
Bake at 425° for 13 to 15 minutes or until foldovers are puffed and golden brown.
Let foldovers cool on a wire rack.
