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 currently have some time, I was looking on the internet last week. On the lookout for new, exciting ideas, inspirational dishes that I have never tried before, to astonish my family with. Hunting for a while unfortunately couldn’t discover lots of interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I stumbled on this delightful and simple treat by chance. It looked so tempting
on its photo, that required prompt actions.
It was not difficult to imagine the way it is made, its taste and how much boyfriend will love it. Actually, it is extremely easy to keep happy him in terms of cakes. Anyways, I got into the webpage: Suncakemom and then followed the simple instuctions that had been accompanied by nice shots of the task. It just makes life rather easy. I can suppose it’s a bit of a inconvenience to take photos down the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you most often have sticky hands therefore i genuinely appreciate the hard work she put in to make this blogpost .
That being said I am empowered to present my own recipes in the same way. Appreciate your the concept.
I had been fine tuning the initial formula to make it for the taste of my family. Need to tell you it had been an awesome success. They enjoyed the flavor, the structure and loved getting a treat such as this during a lively week. They basically asked for more, more and more. Thus the next time I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m likely to twin the volume .

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.
