My close friend from Yakima Washington harvests his families apple orchards every year. This year he decided to ship me a box of apples. I was extremely excited when he asked me if I wanted some apples, yet a little concerned that he would send me a huge box of apples that I would never be able to consume on my own. He joked that he would be sending them individually by carrier pigeon. The most frightful thing is that he would in fact find a way to send them by carrier pigeon.
To my surprise, a large 28 LB box arrived at my doorstep, full of Honeycrisp apples, yummy! 🙂
So the first thing that I chose to bake were some Apple Turnovers.
2 Honeycrisp Apples-make 4 Apple Turnovers
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
2/3 Cup Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/16 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1 Roll of Dough
1 Tablespoon Flour
1. Preheat Oven to 400 Degrees Farhenheit
2. Peel and core Honeycrisp apples ( I did this via the oldschool apple peeler (My favorite kitchen tool))
3. Slice if you havent already (keep in cold-room temp. water to prevent from turning brown)
4. Mix your flour, nutmeg, cinnamon sugar, sugar in one bowl
5. Unroll your dough on a cookie sheet
6. Dip your apple slices into this sugary mixture
7. Cluster a decent size pile onto each corner of dough
-> make sure that your pile goes vertical (almost as if youre making a cookie dough blob out of apples)
8. slice the dough into 4 squares
9. Fold each square over the top of the apple mound and press a fork into the dough, mending the two layers together
10. Paint on egg white onto the top of each apple-dough mound
11. Sprinkle brown sugar on the tops and edges (more the merrier)
12. Make small decorative incisions on the top of your apple dough, serving as a vent-allowing internal heat to release.
13. Bake for 10 minutes
