It’s memorial day weekend, and of course it’s another excuse for me to make something apple pie themed. As you can tell by the recipe title, of course, I ended up making these mouth watering apple turnovers! Because apple pie has been around in America for quite a while, it’s been a traditional recipe that most people associate with USA holidays. In fact, in the first blog post I ever wrote on My Southern Sweet Tooth (which, sadly, doesn’t exist anymore), I mentioned one of my all time favorite cookbooks ever: The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook.
While I was flipping through the cookbook, I happened to stumble upon a beautiful apple turnovers recipe. Naturally, I had to put my own, slightly healthier twist on it (but only slightly). In these apple turnovers, I implemented coconut oil, whole wheat flour, and honey instead of sugar. As always, feel free to replace with those ingredients with anything you’d like.
I’m going to have to admit, these past couple of weeks have been crazy for me, so I’d like to apologize for being gone for for so long. Finals week is coming up in just a few days, we’ve been having some end-of-the-year festivities, and I’ve been completely swamped with afterschool activities. After summer starts (!!!), I’ll be posting way more consistently.
