Caramel Apple Turnovers
This is the time of year when we want to share our love with our friends and family. There is something innately gratifying when you share your love with food.

It is said, “It is not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
Apple Pie is as wholesome to America as it gets. Therefore, in keeping with my theme of “Friendsgiving” and desiring to share a some love and wholesomeness, I wanted to make something sweet with apples with a little twist. So I decided to create this Caramel Apple Turnovers recipe with Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry.
My kitchen smelled amazing while making these. Scents of apple and cinnamon filled the air. It was so intoxicating that it enticed my daughter to come out of her room to see what I was making. (Very few things motivate her to come out of her room on her own free will.)
There was an immediate smile on her face along with, “Hey Mom, can I have one of these?” The Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry crust is light, airy, flaky, and crispy filled with a sweet apple center. Just as expected, she had an immediate response of happiness and delight.
