Apple Picking


Every year we head up to north Georgia to take in the cooler temps and pick apples. As usual, we get a little over-excited and bag way more apples than we can eat. To make good use of the extra fruit, I fold them into simple apple turnovers. Check out some pics from our day and my easy recipe in the post


Honey Crisp? Mutsu? Pink Lady? I’m clueless when it comes to apple varieties (so a quick bite helps us figure out what we like).


Making our way through the apple orchard.


The key to a perfect apple turnover is a lazy baking spirit (check!) and frozen puff pastry. My recipe is a version of this, with a couple tweaks.

• 1/3 cup sugar
• 1 tbs flour
• 1/2 tsp cinnamon
• 4 cups apples (chopped and peeled)
• frozen puff pastry (thawed for 30 minutes)
• pinch of salt

• 3 tbs melted butter
• 1/2 tsp cinnamon
• 2 tbs sugar
• pinch of salt

Step 1 | Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon and pinch of salt in a large bowl. Add in chopped apples and blend. Unfold one sheet of puff pastry and cut into four smaller squares.
Step 2 | Spoon apple mixture in the center of the pastry square and fold the pastry diagonally, pressing the edges to seal. Place on a silpat sheet or a baking sheet lined with parchment. Use a fork to press the edges of the turnover once on the sheet.
Step 3 | Melt the butter and combine ingredients for the topping mixture. Brush the tops of the turnovers and bake at 400 degrees for 14 minutes.
