BB: Apple Turnovers
This month’s Barefoot Bloggers Bonus Recipe was selected by Anne, of Anne Strawberry. How did Anne know that turnovers are one of my favorite desserts?
I happened to have puff pastry in the freezer – Trader Joe’s came out with a new product awhile back, so I’d been looking for a good excuse to use it. I decided to make just half the apple filling, and I’m certainly glad I did because even though I over-stuffed 4 turnovers, I still had at least half the filling left. (As a testamonial, the filling is delicious eaten raw, right out of the bowl.) These were definitely a hit. The orange component smacks you with scent and flavor.
While I might wish I’d made all 8 of them, I know full well that I would have eaten all 8 of them. But with puff pastry in the freezer and all of the remaining ingredients perpetually in my pantry, I can make them anytime. Great choice, Anne!
