Looking for naturally sweet bite that brightens up the day? Let’s make some apple turnovers and open the door for even more!
As I most recently have a little time, I was searching on the web last week. Trying to find fresh, exciting tips, inspirational dishes that I’ve never tried before, to treat my family with. Looking for a while yet could not discover too many interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I came upon this scrumptious and easy dessert simply by luck at Suncakemom. The dessert seemed so fabulous on its snapshot, it called for immediate actions.
It was simple enough to imagine the way it is created, its taste and just how much boyfriend is going to like it. Mind you, it is quite simple to please him when it comes to desserts. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or perhaps he is.Anyway, I visited the website and used the step-by-step instuctions that were coupled with impressive photos of the procedure. It really makes life faster and easier. I can suppose it is a slight effort to take photos down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may typically have gross hands therefore i pretty appreciate the effort and time she put in for making this blogpost .
With that in mind I am encouraged presenting my personal dishes in the same way. Many thanks for the concept.
I was fine tuning the main formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to mention it absolutely was a great outcome. They prized the flavor, the overall look and loved having a treat like this during a stressful workweek. They quite simply requested more, more and more. Hence the next occasion I am not going to commit the same mistake. I’m going to multiply the amount to get them happy.

Place the peeled and grated apples into a mixing bowl.
The time has already come to use any optional sweetener of choice. Try to keep it low as apples are generally sweet enough and don’t really require extra sweeteners. Sprinkle the ground cinnamon on top and mix it well together.
While adding about a quarter cup of water pour the filling int a saucepan to cook. Cook apple in medium heat, stir occasionally for about 5 – 10 minutes. Replace the amount of water that evaporates if a more jucy filling is desired otherwise not necessary.
Meanwhile the apple is cooking mix a spoonful of cornstarch, teaspoon of optional vanilla extract and some water in a bowl. When added to the apple sauce this will thicken it somewhat so if we want a denser filling add more cornstarch. Optionally we can skip this step entirely.
Pour the liquid into the cooked apple mixture then stir vigorously.
Take it off the heat when it starts to boil and set aside the saucepan with the filling whilst we’re making the dough. The cooler the filling gets the better as handling buttery pastry with hot filling isn’t one of the easiest task in the kitchen.
Apple turnover dough
Measure flour, butter, baking powder and pour it into a mixing bowl with and egg. (soften or even melt the butter a bit as it will be hard to knead it otherwise)
Add the water. Water is crucial ingredient that activates gluten in the flour that holds together the whole pie from falling apart into a shapeless brown mass in the hot oil pan. Knead it well together by hand until the dough comes together and not sticking to the hands or the side of the bowl.
Divide it into nine pieces of the same size.
Make 9 little balls out of them.
Sprinkle some flour on the board and put one ball in the middle.
Flatten it with a rolling pin then put some filling on one side of the dough.
Fold it in half. A help of a spatula may be needed to pick up the flattened dough nicely.
Press the dough together by hand or with a fork. Make sure there aren’t any gaps where the filling could escape. Remove the excess dough if necessary and make new balls from them. Repeat until the dough runs out.
Pour oil into a frying pan and heat it in medium to high heat. Drop a tiny piece of dough into the oil. If it starts sizzling, we can put the first two apple turnovers into the oil to fry. In about 1 -3 minutes (maybe more, depending on the cooktop turn it round to fry the other side too.
