Campfire Apple Turnovers

Makes: 4 servings


1 package Pillsbury croissant dough
1 cup | 250 ml apple pie filling
½ cup | 125 ml crushed walnuts  


At your campsite
Open up the dough, and separate it into four pieces. Fill each piece with apple pie filling and sprinkle with a few walnuts. Pinch the dough closed. Wrap each turnover in tinfoil and place on hot embers. Cook for about 10 minutes on each side, or until browned.

Insider’s Tips 

  • Chopped up fresh apples with brown sugar, butter and cinnamon would be delicious or, in a resealable food-safe bag, pre-freeze applesauce with a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. 
  • Packing the croissant dough frozen helps it last longer. 
  • Dates, raisins or dried cranberries would be good added to the filling. 
  • Be careful not to overfill the turnovers—they'll leak!
