Hot crossed…Apple Turnovers?

As you know, G + I migrated up to Fishkill, NYC with the other Brooklyn couples to fulfill what Instagram tells me is a very basic Fall couple activity. Now, we’re not huge apple people (G specifically picked Fishkill Farms, because you could pick your own vegetables and listen to live music)… so color me surprised when we left the apple orchard with a bag full of apples. Of course I had to hop on Pinterest to figure out what to DO with the apples….and found this gem of a recipe from the Blog Cook. I am no baker (as well as know!), but this recipe took twenty minutes and was SO TASTY. If you’re heading into apple land and looking for something to do with the delicious excess, try this.  – A
