Does anyone do really good apple turnovers (like McDonald's, only actually hand-made)? I'd LOVE to have the time to learn to bake, but who has that kind of time these days??

Puff pastry filled with apples? You really don't need to be "a baker" to do that.

Just buy some high quality puff pastry sheets and good traditional apples. No bland Granny Smith.

Peel and slice the apples, heat some butter (3tbs), put the apples (4), brown sugar (1cup), nutmeg, ground clove and cinnamon in it. Mix 1 tbs cornstarch with 3 tbs Cider or Cointreau, pour it over the apples and let it cook for a couple of min. Let it cool.

Preheat oven to 380 degrees F. Cut every puff pastry sheet in 4 squares. Give some of the filling on top, leave 1inch room on the sides. Put a little water on these edges (works like glue), fold from corner to corner to get a triangle shape. Close the edges by pressing a fork on it (like ravioli). "Paint" the top with whisked egg yolk, and put the pastry on a baking sheet (with baking paper)...leave some room between them. Bake for 20-25 min. till the pastry is puffed and golden brown. Voila!

Texas ain't exactly apple country now is it? Best pies come from apples fresh off the trees grown in local soils and sunlight.

However, I am sure Martha Stewart has done something wonderful to Apple Pie recipes you can make at home..After making her Mac N Cheese recipe recently I am convinced she's from some other planet of delicious creativity.
