Most challenging recipe

  • National Apple Turnover Day is a challenging day for all the chefs and cooks in America. 
  • With apple turnovers, the most challenging task is the method of preparing the pastry crust.
  • If a readymade puff pastry which is frozen in condition is used, then the apple turnovers look pretty.
  • If a butter crust made in home is used, which is simple to make, pastry taste becomes wonderful.
  • It may be with flakes, but it may not be stuffed with layers to make it puffy.
  • Sometimes people use their own homemade puff pastry dough.
  • It requires skills and methods and it is not as easy like pie dough which is made in home, but one genuinely lip-smacking pastry when it gets prepared.
  • One can choose either pie crust which is made with butter at home, or a puff pastry sheet which is frozen to make apple turnovers. 
  • But it is believed that the butter crust which is made at home is more useful in compare to the puff pastry which is frozen, though it is comparatively more time taking.
  • The center of the apple turnovers are made up of apples, apple sauce, walnuts, dried currants, cinnamonand a little sugar vanilla and many other ingredients as per the taste can be used.
