Whatever the reason, I am so not ready for life to be moving at this warp speed.
These caramel apple turnovers are so easy to prepare, and worth every darn calorie in each buttery bite. I highly recommend you not only make them, but eat a lot of them along with your feelings about the cold weather creeping in... and your 9 year old buying his first stick of deodorant.
Caramel Apple Turnovers
1 sheet of puff pastry
4 cups of peeled, chopped apples
1 1/2 cups soft caramels, chopped
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs ground cinnamon
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1tsp water)
1 tbs raw sugar
1 tsp heavy cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, toss apples, 1 cup of the chopped caramel, lemon juice, cinnamon, sugar and flour.
Roll pastry out until it is just about 1/8 of an inch thick. Cut into 6 squares.
Place spoonfuls of the apple filling into the center of each pastry square.
Fold edges of each over and crimp the sides closed.
Brush with egg wash, and then sprinkling with raw sugar.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown all over.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 15 minutes.
Add the remaining caramels and a tsp of cream to a small microwave safe dish, and microwave in 15 second increments, stirring between each, just until it has all melted and smooth.
Drizzle caramel over the top of each turnover, and serve with vanilla ice cream.
Turnovers are best if eaten warm, as they cool the caramel will harden.
