Something New

Apple Doo-Dads - Don't know what to call them. Like a turnover as far as taste goes.

This shot shows a new attempt at baking something from all my homegrown apples. This shot is from when they were about half done baking. My wife brought a box of Filo Dough home and I baked what tastes just like an apple turnopver except for the dough. We call them doo-dads. They are very tasty and I plan on making more really soon. When was the last time, if at all, that you had homemade apple turnovers? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Hi GRANDPA BOB, The last time i had homemade apple turnover was when my mother cooked it many years ago, but shop ones never taste the same. Tamara

we had some kitchen made apple turnovers awhile back and all of us'were saying oh why dont they do this a lot more often? for'me it was surprising as usually the cook isnt that good on these types of dishes. but it really was delicious.

You know as much as I like to bake, I don't think I've ever had any homemade apple turnovers. What's wrong with me??? I need to try this really soon.

Hi GB - long time, huh? Haven't seen too much of you on FB either. These look really good, I have to say. Did you brush them with anything, like a simple syrup or maybe a glaze when they were done? How were they when you were done?

Ok, Grandpa Bob..I'm gonna end up baking a ton of apple desserts instead of canning applesauce if I keep reading/responding to your discussions. lol No, never had homemade apple turnovers before, just store-bought.

yummy indeed. we've started to harvest some green beans, but instead of cooking them I end up eating them raw LOL hubby said next year I'm gonna have to hold and use them for cooking because that's the whole point of growing them, to reduce grocery bills :)
