TWD: Flaky Apple Turnovers

Look at that flaky goodness!

Julie of Someone’s in the Kitchen picked Flaky Apple Turnovers for this week's TWD. Thanks for a great pick Julie! A great kick-off to "back to school".

I used Gala apples because that's what I had on hand. I couldn't believe how professional these turnovers looked and how flaky the pastry turned out with minimum work required. They truly live up to their name. The recipe calls for sour cream in the pastry and this really helps ease the handling. I egg-washed them then dusted them with sugar before baking. Mmm... a perfect morning pastry.

In the oven, working its magic

Oops, too much apple in this one - it wouldn't stay shut.

Visit Julie's blog (above) for the recipe.
