Easy Apple Turnovers

If you read my recent recipe for Apple Walnut Spice Muffins, you will know that I have a bunch of Granny Smith apples to get through before they go bad.

Not only did I recently discover that my husband doesn’t enjoy green apples, but I also discovered he has never had a turnover! What?! Crazy talk, I know.

I’m not a huge pastry person. I’m a dessert girl, yes, but not so much into danishes and such. But my husband is, however, we rarely have them in the house.

So when I learned that he had never had a turnover and since I have all these apples just hanging out, I made these Apple Turnovers.

They are so, so easy to make and really delicious!

Eating them warm with a scoop of ice cream on top is like perfection!

I can’t wait to try this recipe with other fillings!
