Considering that today is Super Bowl Sunday, one might wonder why I’m not sharing a recipe for buffalo wings or some sort of ultimate party dip. While those are great party foods, I am not what you might call a football fan. I won’t lose a wink of sleep tonight if I don’t know who reigned victorious on the gridiron. However, I’m also not one to let a good reason to bake pastries slip by me. In football lingo, a turnover is not exactly a sign of success. Around here, a turnover is a very, very good thing. What’s not to love about buttery, flaky pastry filled with gooey, cinnamon-y apple filling? Everyone wins.
Deep down, I have a guilty conscience for not sharing a recipe for homemade puff pastry with you. That day will come soon enough. It’s still a work in progress. These apple turnovers are made with pre-made puff pastry and one bite made my guilt melt away. These turnovers are so easy to make, yet they taste so much better than apple turnovers from the bakery. Who needs football anyway?
