Tuesdays With Dorie 51: Flaky Apple Turnovers


Just reading that this week's recipe was going to be Flaky Apple Turnovers was enough to get me incredibly excited. Apple turnovers certainly aren't mainstream in Australia, but I just knew I would love them. To me they sounded like mini apple pies (and I love me some apple pie). In fact, I could happily eat apple pie everyday for the rest of my life.


I actually hadn't noticed this recipe before, so thanks to Julie of Someone's in the Kitchen for picking it this week! Like I said before, I just knew I would love this recipe so I made the whole batch (usually I half it at least) as I was planning on freezing them for a quick treat. Well, boy did these live up to my expectations- they are so flaky and so delicious it isn't funny. Truly, it is no laughing matter! Bake these as soon as humanly possible. The only problem is that the rest of the dough is in my fridge right now, waiting to be rolled out. How I loath rolling out this particular dough! It's a nightmare and I am avoiding it at all costs. These little turnovers are too good though, so I will no doubt endure the stickiness of the dough and give my biceps the workout of their life for these little pieces of heaven.

I thought they were super yummy too. I had tons of dough left and I got super tired of making the little turnovers so I made one big one and sprinkled cinnamon chips all over it...I really liked it!

The dough is made with sour cream. Huh? This threw me off. Never would have thought of making a pie crust with sour cream. But I trust Mrs. Greenspan. She did work with the Mastah, Julia Child after all. That being said, I didn’t exactly follow the directions. I was supposed to have taken the dough and made a rectangle out of it before putting it in the fridge to chill. I missed that part. I just threw the whole bowl in the freezer. Ooops. So I had issues arise when it came time to roll it out and fold it into an envelope. My envelope was more like what happens you you incorrectly open one of those padded manilas and all the crap falls out of them while you are trying to scurry to the nearest available trash can. Not ideal. But I smooshed it all togehter and returned it to the fridge. From there, I was able to roll it out and cut large rounds using my big cookie cutter.
