What a week. It has been a busy one at home and work. My MIL, Karen, was here this past week….and while I was able to bake the Flaky Apple Turnovers, I was unable to squeeze in the time and energy to post them. Karen flew home to Saratoga Springs yesterday morning (and now I have a sulky dog and two sad little boys) and so today it is a quiet house and I now have to get these posted.
I am so in love with this recipe. It is great. The flaky crust made me a little nervous. It was a little rough and lumpy when I made it, but then after tweeting about it with some friends I realized that mine was not the only one like that so maybe it was suppose to be that way! And it was. The dough came together wonderfully, rolled beautifully, and flaked up perfectly! These were super yummy. I used a Granny Smith apple for my filling and it was perfect, still a little crisp after baking, and just the right apple flavour. I had decided that I was only going to make a half batch of these and I wish I had made a full batch. But I did save some of the dough and filling for this weekend and Jason and I ate hot from the over turnovers for breakfast this morning! Divine. At the beginning of the week when I made the first batch of these I ate mine with some Honey Tart Frozen Yogurt. The perfect combo. I apologize to Julie, from Someone’s In the Kitchen, for my late post! Be sure to check out her blog for the recipe and the other TWD bloggers for their creations and takes on this classic treat!
Hope you all had a great week and are enjoying the end of summer!
Love Big, Bake Often
