Easy Bakery Style Apple Turnovers Recipe – these easy apple turnovers taste just like they are from your favorite bakery – with a crunchy sugar topping and cinnamon apple filled puff pastry that fit right along with the gourmet bakery pastries found on Princess Cruises! 

This post is sponsored by Princess Cruises. All opinions are 100% my own. 

I was recently given the chance of a lifetime to take a British Isles cruise with Princess Cruises to Ireland, the United Kingdom, and France – and loved every single second. 

If you’ve ever wanted to visit the British Isles, but you weren’t sure where to start or how to plan one, Princess has already done the hard work for you with fabulous itineraries including tons of top rated and even some exclusive shore excursions you won’t find anywhere else. 

Touring with Princess can help you get a taste of Ireland, Scotland, England, and France like no other vacation can!

These puff pastry apple turnovers are so crazy easy – they require just a few basic ingredients and no special equipment or skills – and taste indulgent and delicious just like my favorite way to start off mornings at sea – with tasty pastries from Princess Cruises International Cafe (the absolute best spot to grab coffee and fresh pastries each morning!). 

These pastries are so easy – just like how easy Princess makes exploring some of the best ports, and enjoying the best food while at sea. I love to eat when traveling, and Princess never lets me down with their gourmet selections that are both part of the cruise package, and the specialty restaurants on ship. 

To make these simple pastries, you will just cut, fill, fold over, and top with crunchy sugar before popping in the oven – and you’ll have delicious bakery style apple turnovers in no time. 

This recipe couldn’t be easier – or more delicious. It is so simple, even my kids can make these apple turnovers even though they taste just like they came from the International Cafe!

Why Princess Cruises Gets My Pick For Best Cruise Food: 

Princess has a commitment to delicious, easy, and unique food that is unparalelled when traveling.

From innovative dining events like the Chef’s Table and Chef’s Table Lumiere, to wine tastings and blendings, to dishes crafted by Curtis Stone and Norman Love Chocolates, Princess really knows how to spoil guests with delicious dishes all over the ship. 

Princess often offers theme nights (I love seeing the waiters dress up for Italian night in striped sweaters) and the Brazilian night in the buffet is packed with amazing finds that help you explore international cuisines – my favorite is the British Pub lunch on ships featuring the Salty Dog gastropub. 

Princess also offers specialty pizza, Italian restaurants, a gastropub, and one of the most delicious steakhouses at sea – in addition to the out of the park tasty meals you’ll find in the main dining rooms. 

There are so many amazing food finds on ship, you can never go wrong!
