Winter doesn't offer the same kind of variety of fruit to choose from that other seasons do, but one thing that most people can get their hands on locally in the cooler months are a wide array of apples. One can often find my kids munching away on an apple or two at breakfast time or as their dessert after dinner, but they also get super excited about these delectable Apple Pie Turnovers.
These handheld turnovers aren't anything like the baked apple pies made with stuff like palm oil and high fructose corn syrup that you got as a kid from at McDonald's (and probably loved in spite of what they put in them). These Apple Pie Turnovers are made with cubes of fresh apples, ground cinnamon and a touch of brown sugar which gives them a yummy caramel flavor. You can even freeze a few so that all you have to do whenever you are craving one (or two) is pop them in the oven and within 20 minutes you'll have a applicious treat to warm you up in winter or make everyone jealous come spring!
