TWD: Flaky Apple Turnovers
Despite mistakes, confusion, and a few swear words, this was a very unattractive but tasty choice for this week. Thanks to Julie of Someone's in the Kitchen for picking a challenging and delicious treat!
Things started out rough when the dough wasn't broken down into small enough parts.
My butter was too cold, so it didn't "make friends" as much with the rest of the dough as it should have.
After a trip to the fridge, out came the crumbly dough -- all over the floor.
A little more sour cream and a little more mixing, and back into the fridge the divided dough went.
Out for a roll -- not exactly 9x18. Both of mine looked like small European countries.
Back into the fridge (where one still lives) for more rest, while apples were cut and mixed.
A trip to the oven, took about 23 minutes for them to become the right color and doneness.
Too many apples, too small of dough, too ugly to serve to others. But oh so tasty, flaky and flavorful once cooled.
Since I have another dough in the fridge, I can give this another try. I probably didn't have the dough rolled out thin enough, and I can't imagine how TWO tablespoons full of the apple mixture would EVER fit in the dough round. Like I said, it wasn't pretty, there was some swearing, but gosh these things are good. Definitely a challenge, and one I'll likely try again!
