Julie of Someones in the Kitchen picked Flaky Apple Turnovers for this weeks Tuesdays with Dorie. Nothing screams Fall like a apple and cinnamon dessert and this one is a keeper. These little hand pies are delicious and are fairly easy to make. The dough is pretty high maintenance but well worth the effort. The dough must be kept very cold to work with. My first tray of the turnovers turned out very rustic (ugly). I rolled up the leftover dough and chilled it for a couple of hours and tried again. This time I just rolled it out on the counter with some flour and it was much easier to work with. I froze the remaining pies and cooked then straight out of the freezer.
The second batch turned out looking much better. I spooned a little glaze over them and they were super yummy. The turnovers are good served hot or cold. This is a great make ahead dessert to have stashed in the freezer.
