Lightly brush edges of pastry with egg wash. Place apple filling in center of squares. Fold over puff pastry to create a triangle and gently press edges together. Using a fork, press edges to seal . Brush with eggwash and sprinkle tops with cinnamon sugar. Prick tops of turnovers a few times with fork. Bake until pastry is crisp and golden, about 20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
