So I’ve been trying to be part of the blogosphere, become integrated with the already successful foodies, you know, catch up. Make this serious. Realllll serious.
So I was reading Orangette (for the uninformed of us, who have not done their food blog research, behind it is Molly, who, after writing a quality food blog for some time, managed to nail down a monthly column in Bon Apetite), and wandered to Bon Apetit’s website, and found a recipe for Apple Turnovers.
I tried to make some a few weeks ago but was a little retarded in using my DuFour pastry, and they blew up the size of bike helmets and it was pretty ridiculous. So while I made my own filling, I did follow the method and sizing used in the article and then made some mini or skinny or plain different chocolate croissants as well. It worked out since I rarely get through the fruit in my CSA delivery, and had several near bad apples hanging around, ready to be made into a delicious chunky apple filling.
We spent yesterday exercising and cleaning the yard, ending the day with an evening walk (read: hike–we’re talking 55 minutes of over a hill and down a hill walking!). Today, we got to bake the pastries I prepared last night (I froze them in their shapes and put the egg wash on the outside this morning before baking) and enjoy the garden.
