TWD: Flaky Apple Turnovers


Ahhhh...fall is in the air! As soon as I feel the first hint of a chill, I start craving all things fall. I can't wait to bake with pumpkin, apple, maple, and other delicious autumn spices. These apple turnovers were a great way to kick start my fall baking streak! Great recipe pick for September, Julie!

I'd never made turnovers before (although I've eaten plenty!) and I struggled a little bit with the proper dough thickness::apple filling ratio. As a result, mine had a little too much dough and not enough apple, but they were still fantastic. The dough is made with sour cream (oh don't worry, there's a LOT of butter in there, too) , so there is a hint of tang throughout the flakiness, and the apples are tossed with just enough cinnamon and sugar to make them melt in your mouth. I will definitely try to make these again!

Well, they look delicious to me. I love making 'hand pies' and these were easy.

Great job.
