See...I did make them

These Flaky Apple Turnover were last week's TWD pick. Julie from Someone's in the Kitchen chose them for her hosting week.

My 5 yr old and I picked the apples from a neighbor's tree.

We put all the rotten apples in a pile for them to pick up. (I would have done it but I only brought along one bag...for MY apples)

We were very careful of the little bird and her nest when picking.

Chopped them up.

Dropped a raspberry on a few.

Chopped up some caramels on a few.

Made some into little bundles.

Sprinkled the tops with raw sugar and.....

....there you go. Passed some out to the neighbors with the apple tree. We loved them.

I have 9 tucked away in the freezer to be consumed at a later date.

Thanks for stopping by.

It's still Tuesday isn't it?

I know, I know...total slacker. I really have a good excuse....but who really cares? I'm here now and it's not like I haven't been baking. I have...but finding the time to take the photos off the camera...onto the computer, and then sitting down and actually writing something? That's the hard part!

These Cottage Cheese Pufflets that Jacque from Daisy Lane Cakes chose for this week's TWD adventure were not my favorite thing to make. But that's the whole idea of this baking group, right? To venture out and try new things. Don't get me wrong, the taste is lovely I just get frustrated when something is not going the way I think it should be going! :)

Should have chilled the dough more...even more than I did. I used apricot jam for the filling and my kids don't care what they look like. :)

Don't forget to stop by the website to see what the others have created.

Thanks for stopping by.
