Apple Turnover

Saturday we celebrated my daughters 37th birthday. (wow)  Her birthday was on the 9th but she wanted to have her birthday dinner on Saturday.  Every year she wants me to make her one of her favorites, which is Corned Beef, cabbage and mashed potatoes.  (I must say one of my favorites too, well really it's the whole family's except for my Son Danny...won't repeat what he said about cabbage...LOL)  Well Alan, my son-in-law wanted to help cook something for his wife so she said she wanted Apple Turnovers for dessert.  I made the apple mixture and Alan put them all together.  Don't they look yummy.  They sure were good.
This is the apple mixture, very simple
Slice apples about 6, put into skillet with 3/4 stick of butter, 3-4TBL cinnamon, 1 TBL nutmeg, 1/3 cup sugar, pinch of salt, 1/4 cup white drinking sweet wine.  Cook until reduced.  Then put into puff pastry, with a dab of butter.

I had the puff pastry thawed and cut into 6 pieces, then Alan cut them in half, put this mixture in a sealed the edges.  Baked them at 400 degrees for about 20 mintues. Then dust with powdered sugar or you could make the powdered sugar icing.                                                                                                                             
Give these a try, a quick easy dessert or a nice treat for a Sunday Brunch.  Even the man in your life  (if you   have one) can do these.   ;)                                                                                                                                                                            

 Have a wonderful week, and please try to Find the Time to Do all the Things you Love.
PS here is a picture of Alan and Mirna. (she had a taste too)
