TWD: Flaky Apple Turnovers
Turnovers have always been one of my favorite treats. When I was young, my mother would buy the Pepperidge Farm frozen turnovers and bake up a batch for dessert. While I preferred the lemon filling, I also enjoyed the apple, cherry, and blueberry ones.
It's been quite some time since I've had turnovers, so I was very pleased to see this week's selection by Julie of Someone’s in the Kitchen. I was really looking forward to making and enjoying these apple turnovers, which I did, immensely.
The dough came together very easily for me; it was nice and smooth. I understand that other bakers had crumbly dough, but it certainly wasn't the case for me.
Half of the dough gave me 8 turnovers, with scraps left over to play with.
I chopped my apples into a very small dice, and added a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon juice along with the cinnamon and sugar.
Folded and crimped, brushed and sprinkled.
Fresh from the oven.
There's that yummy apple filling.
I was really hoping that I would be able to eat them all, because one of my daughter's least favorite foods is cooked apple. It's a texture thing. But -- and this is high praise, indeed -- she ate two of them, saying, that for a cooked apple dessert, it was one of the best.
I did get the remainder, however. Yesssss.
Catch the turnovers from the other bakers on the Tuesdays with Dorie blog.
