Apple Turnovers

Once again I LOVE puff pastries!! I made these for my future brother-in-law’s birthday, because I knew he liked apple/pecan desserts. They turned out so well that I made more for a family dinner we had last weekend! These little turnovers are the perfect balance of sweetness to pastry. I love delicately sweet desserts so these were right up my alley BUT you can make them more decadent by adding a caramel drizzle across the top of them.a2
