TWD: Flaky Apple Turnovers

APOLOGY – I’m apologizing to any TWD bakers this week. I am so swamped with work I’m lucky I actually got these made. I may not be able to get out and post comments, and I’m sorry for that. Just wanted to make sure I got this out there :-/

Today is my one year blogoversary. However, it’s also Tuesdays with Dorie. So I decided to hold off on my one year post until later tonight to allow the TWD post to shine through. After all, these Flaky Apple Turnovers chosen by Julie of Someone’s in the Kitchen are to die for! You can check out Julie’s blog for the recipe or flip open Baking From My Home to Yours to pages 316 and 317.

I have been insanely busy with work this past couple of weeks. So much so that I haven’t been able to blog the way I would like. I work for Disney’s as their kid’s craft expert and during Disney’s acquisition of Kaboose from June through July, I did not have any assignments. So now that is all ironed out, I have been slammed with assignments and have been a crafting fiend for the last two weeks. My living room has been over run by craft supplies, glue, construction paper, felt, wiggle eyes, and pom poms.

So with that all said I don’t have any step by step photos or anything truly insightful to say about this recipe other than it really is fabulous. I will definitely make it again, only next time I think I will try subbing brown sugar for the white sugar that is mixed with the apples, I have a feeling the results would be similar to a Taco Bell caramel apple empanada (insert Homer Simpson “oooooaaaahhhh”).

The dough has sour cream in it, making it rather sticky, but if you follow the recipe instructions and peel back the wax paper slowly after rolling, you shouldn’t have too many issues. I allowed mine to sit in the refrigerator overnight, so it was pretty easy to work with. Dorie says these freeze very well and do not need to be thawed, just add a few extra minutes to the baking time. I will definitely do that next time, these are really a winner!


Oh, if I can muster up enough energy, my blogoversary post tonight will include some fun stuff I’ve learned over the last year as well as an interview with one of my favorite recipe blogs. See you later!

    Yay for 1 year of blogging!
    Perfect looking turnovers. I liked this recipe, too! But if you know me, I didn't make apple!

  3. Michelle says

    Happy Blogoversary! Your turnover look yummers, I love baking with apples. I just made the gang dumplings over the weekend and today I'm making a pie to go with some homemade vanilla ice cream. My mouth is watering!

    Amanda, I swear, you make everything looks so easy and darn pretty.

    Those turnovers look so flaky and wonderful. I am drooling . . thanks! ;)

    My Mom and one of the twins would love these as they like turnovers and apple pies.

    Hope things settle down soon for you.

    Happy blogiversary! :) I'll be back to check out your anniversary post!

    Mmm, those look just perfect (and delish). Congrats to you on your anniversary. Here's wishing you another awesome year.

    I totally understand what you're saying about being busy with work. My last couple of weeks have been absolutely crazy for me. I'm just now finally getting out of the water. Good job for cranking this out among the craziness.
