Mmmmm... I love fruit!
I love it fresh. I love it cooked. I just love it!
You know who doesn't love it?? Mr. Quart! He enjoys apples.
Yep, just apples. No berries, no bananas, no grapes, plums, or pears. Nada.
I guess it's just more for me :) 'Cause I LOVE Fruit!
Last fall, I made some Apple Turnovers, which are soooo good and so easy. Today, I made another turnover. Only this time, I stuffed it with Nectarines and Raspberries.
These Hand Pies - or Turnovers - whichever you prefer, are so easy to make.
They start off with a Puff Pastry Sheet.
Then add the fresh fruit.
Then seal up the sides and bake!
Once they are baked, you can leave them "naked".
Or... add some MORE sugar to the top!
To me, that's the only way a turnover should be!
While your baking, do you wear an apron? I wanna know!
