TWD: Apple Turnovers

The world is a beautiful place isn't it? Despite all the bad and sad, there is still a lot of love and happiness going around. I like to think of all the good things to help me get through the day and help me cope with the reality of things. A little bit of my happy mood got into the apple turnovers and every time I looked at them I smiled. I made some of the turnovers in their traditional shape and got creative with the rest. The turnovers were fantastic. Alex kept raving about them and how he liked how the dough wasn't sweet. The dough is sweet, just not sweet in a way that overpowers and takes away from the natural flavors of the apple filling. I love sour cream in desserts because it adds another level of flavor and it makes desserts more tender, if that makes any sense.

Thanks to Julie of Someone’s in the Kitchen for this week's selection. Make sure to check out her blog for the recipe and to head over to the TWD site to see what everyone else thought of the apple turnovers.

Not traditional.
Goodness on the inside.
