These apple turnover are easy to make and a great way to use up apples from your fall apple picking adventure. Simply dice the apples, toss them in brown sugar and fill them into a flaky puff pastry dough and bake! Add in caramel bites and other candies to make them extra delicious!

Welcome to Fall!! My most favorite time of the year! The weather starts to cool off and you can fill your home with DIY Fall decor and the sweet smells of baked goods…and not feel guilty about over indulging because you can wear a sweater! HA! Or at least that is my excuse!

Picking apples during the Fall and turning them into a baked good, is a favorite family tradition of mine. It’s a tradition my husband and I started when our oldest kiddos were just babies! Now, we still enjoy this yearly tradition, just in different ways!

My big girl just turned e-l-e-v-e-n!! I’m not even sure how this is possible, because I swear I am only 28!!! But somehow the hands of time just keep on moving and making us both older…and her taller!

For her birthday we went apple picking with my parents and my mother-in-law. We had such a nice time. This was our first apple season in Wisconsin but I do have to say that we had such a nice time I wasn’t sad about the beautiful mountain views in North Carolina until I realized I wasn’t going to get my annual Bruce Family Apple Picking Photo at our favorite mountain top orchard since 2010…oh well! Time for new memories!

Anyway, since we have so many apples to use up, my daughter and her friend made apple turnovers for all of us to enjoy! With just a little explanation of how to make these super easy apple turnovers I was literally able to turnover my kitchen to them and they made these all on their own! …I’m loving this part of them being older! They can make ME food for a change!! šŸ™‚

These apple turnovers were absolutely delicious and I love that you can change them up by adding whichever ingredients you’d like! They were such a nice change to my usual apple recipe, my Classic All-American Apple Pie (with raisins!!) and Apple Pie Bread | Cinnamon Apple Bread, that we all love!
