*Check out the Valentines edition of the Mystery Baking Challenge. to see the life instructions of this recipe.
1. Take the puff pastry sheets out of the freezer to thaw.
2. Slice the dried apricots in little pieces and put them in a mixing bowl.
3. Add the raspberries and the prosecco to the bowl. (Just enough prosecco to cover all the fruit underneath.) Let the fruit marinate for 30 minutes. (The longer you marinate, the softer the fruit and the stronger the prosecco flavor will be.)
4. Drain the prosecco trough a sieve (Make sure to catch up the remaining prosecco in a glass or bowl, you will need it later.) Add 2 tbsp of sugar to the fruit mixture and stir it through.
5. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F and line a baking sheet with baking paper.
6. Remove the plastic sheets between each sheet of puff pastry and place the puff pastry squares on the prepared baking sheet.
7. Place 1-1,5 spoons of the fruit filling on top of each puff pastry square. `You can optionally wet the edges of the dough a bit with the prosecco (to make it stick easier). Fold one corner of each dough square to the opposite tip of the dough (into a triangle) and press it down until closed.
8. Wet the top side of the turnovers a bit with the remaining prosecco and sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of sugar on top of the turnovers. Tip: sprinkle from some hight. This way the sugar gets evenly distributed `(thick spots of sugar will easily burn).
9. Bake the Apricot, Raspberry & Prosecco Turnovers for 25 minutes in the preheated oven.
10. Meanwhile press the raspberries for the icing trough a sieve, above a small bowl. Add the powdered sugar and rose water and mix until combined. Transfer the pink icing into a piping bag and cut off the tip of the piping bag.
11. Once the turnovers are completely cooled down, drizzle lines of the raspberry-rose water icing on top of the Apricot, Raspberry & Prosecco Turnovers. Crush the freeze-dried raspberries between your fingers and sprinkle it on top of the iced turnovers. (Alternatively you can use crushed, dried rose petals or other cute looking and tasty sprinkles.)

Hi! You posted these on reddit and I made them the very same day. Fantastic recipe! For my own personal tastes I probably didn’t need the additional sugar after the fruit mingled with the bubbles, but I firmly believe in not altering a recipe if I can help it on the first time around.
I’ll be packaging these up and gifting some to my mom, some to my partner’s staff, and the rest to our stomachs.

Hey Nicole! Thank you for taking the time to post a comment. I’m so happy to hear you like it and you are sharing the love around. 💖
I totally agree! The fruit is probably sweet enough on itself. A little sugar thickens the juices a bit, so the pastry does not get soggy. But feel free to omit the sugar next time! 😊
