Between family health issues, appliance failure, and just the general hustle and bustle of everyday life, posting last week for TWD slipped away from me. But I knew that I just had to make these – Jules from Someone’s in the Kitchen picked Flaky Apple Turnovers, from pages 316 and 317 of Baking: From My Home to Yours.
I made the full batch of dough, but froze half of it for future use. I debated swapping the apple filling for a jam filling, but I had a couple old apples sitting about that needed to be used up. My only changes to the filling recipe were to halve it, and to add the juice of one lemon. I ended up with about 10 turnovers.
THESE TURNOVERS ARE OUTSTANDING. Not the best looking pastries I’ve ever made, but delicious. Definitely, without a doubt, in my top five Dorie favorites, and they will be on the repeat list. After all, I have half a batch of dough sitting in the freezer! Check out Jules’s blog for the original recipe.
