TWD: flaky apple turnovers
Flaky apple turnovers.
Doesn’t that just sound marvelous? I apparently have a thing for sour cream doughs, this reminded me of those pecan sour cream biscuits which were also amazing.
Unfortunately, I had some trouble working with this dough. I found it very crumbly and cracky. I was actually feeling a bit down about my abilities when Susan tweeted she found it difficult to work with too. Then I realized (reading the P&Q later) that we were not alone.
Never fear, though. I just pressed the dough together and put it in the oven. I didn’t even realize until I was almost done that I forgot to sprinkle sugar on top. Or until later that day that I forgot the butter in the middle! (It’s okay–neither was missed.) Quite the make-shift culinary adventure, I’d say!
So how’d it turn out? While I didn’t experience any puffage, I definitely thought these were tasty! I have many fond childhood memories of similar pies. Although, to be honest, I was glad I quartered the recipe. While these were delicious, I don’t think it was necessarily enough so to counter the difficult crust and loads of butter. I did love having this as a “grab and go” type breakfast though!
