Recipe: Grape and Walnut Turnovers

We have a lot of grapes and walnuts in the house at the moment, as they are both at the height of there season, so I though I would try these as a variation for our turnovers.  My husband was a bit sceptical, but he had to admit they tasted good.
. . . 
Ingredients - I haven't given quantities as it is upto you how many you want to do and how much filling you want in each. 

squares of frozen puff pastry
grapes, cut in half (I prefer seedless, but it doesn't matter)
walnuts, shelled and broken into small pieces
mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon (I always have a jar of this already mixed, 1 part cinnamon to 3 parts brown sugar)
sugar
. . . 
Method -
Place the squares of frozen puff pastry on a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper and allow to defrost.

In the meantime, cut your grapes in half and shell and break up the walnuts.

When the pastry is defrosted sprinkle each with a generous amount of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Then pile some of the grapes and walnuts in the centre.

Bring to of the opposite corners of the pastry square together to form a triangle and pinch the edges together firmly.

Place back on the baking tray and sprinkle with the sugar.  Repeat for the remaining squares of pastry.

Place in a pre-heated oven at 200c for around 15 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown and the underside is cooked.

Allow to cool for a few minutes before eating as the grapes get very hot.
