This week's Dorie Greenspan's, Baking From My Home to Yours recipe was chosen by Julie at Someone's in the Kitchen. She chose Flaky Apple Turnovers on pages 316-317. I did not make apple turnovers. Although I do love apple pie. I just didn't think the kids would eat the apple, so I made cherry turnovers AND, and--get this---BANANA chocolate chip turnovers. That's what I'm talkin' about.
I'm not very thrilled with the way my pictures turned out, but the turnovers are quite tasty! (I think the egg wash LOOKS like egg on the turnovers. Maybe it's just me. I mean, I realize it IS egg, but it looks kind of funny. And looking at the actual turnovers themselves, it doesn't look that noticeable. Anyway, thanks for the fun pick, Julie. Feel free to check out the Tuesday's With Dorie blog to see all the other "apple" turnovers out there this week.
I halved the recipe. (Used light sour cream) Chilled the dough in the freezer (I was in a hurry), for about 30 minutes. Let it sit out on the counter for 10 minutes or so. Rolled it out, folded it in thirds and put it in the fridge for a good hour. That's all the time I had. I had no problem rolling out the dough (on a floured surface). I made about 8 banana turnovers. No measurements. I just chopped up a banana, threw in some mini chocolate chips and some brown sugar. Spooned a small amount into my 3 5/8 inch round cut dough circles. Then I made 8-10 cherry turnovers. I used canned cherry pie filling. The boys like it. So does Kevin. Then I still had leftover dough, so after chilling it again, I made a rustic streusel topped cherry galette. Sprinkled everything with turbinado sugar.
I knew the cherry filling would ooze. Oh well.
Banana Chocolate Chip Turnovers
I didn't even measure for the topping. A little flour, sugar and some butta.
Has to have a little of this---
Ahhh, much better.
And as a sweet ending, Sam was playing with blocks today (Monday) and said to me, "Take a picture, Mom." Could he BE any cuter? Didn't think so!
Such a sweet, angelic face on such a little stinker! ;)
Love you, Sam-o!
