What’s the best part of autumn? Besides the cool weather, the crisp air, the mere fact that summer is over? Is it the rain? Close, but nope. The smell of cinnamon? Oooh good, but no, not quite. Apples. Yes, bushels and bushels of apples. So many apples I hardly know what to do with them. Usually during this time, I’m putting apples in everything. Making apple pie every other weekend. I dream about apples. I wake up with ideas in the middle of the night, scheming on how to cook them next or incorporate them into my diet. One can say that I’m addicted to this fruit, especially during their peak season, so much so that my family gets tired of eating so many of them in everything I make. Candy Apples, Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake, Apple Crumbles, Apple Tarts, Apple Butter…you name it. To celebrate the start of my favorite season, I decided to make Apple Turnovers. I just happened to have blueberries on hand, thanks Trader Joe’s for having them on sale, so I thought, “Why not just add them? Sure, throw them in Jonathan. You’re a genius!” Yea I talk to myself all the time, usually complimenting my good ideas. Patting myself on the back. It’s a sight to see.
My friend, whom I mentioned in the previous post, has been wanting to start cooking, so I decided to develop a quick and easy recipe for her! Its a great fake out dessert, where we take a little help from the store with the puff pastry. It’s a perfect treat any beginner can make that’ll make them shine like a star! Let’s get started.
