Creative Cooking Part Two
So on Monday I had the worse sweet tooth imaginable and if your read my TMI Randoms you know why. So what is a girl to do when she wants to continue losing weight, but must quench the sweet tooth? Well, I looked for desserts that would work for me without a lot of calories and definitely not chocolate.
I decided to make a Apple Berry Fruit Turnover. I purchase Granny Smith apples by the bag as a healthy snack in between meals. However, I hate when I get a bag and the damn apples are soft. I hate that with a passion. I like my apples to be firm, hence, my love of Granny Smith apples. So to get rid of them I decided to make this turnover.
My recipe is simple. Cut up apples, thaw out froze mixed berry package and of course thaw out your puff pastry dough. Now you know good and well I don't really measure so just work with me. You really can't mess this up.
I cut up my apples and put my mixed berries in a bowl along with raisins, golden raisins and dried cranberries and stirred in some sugar (small amount), a tablespoon of brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon and then stir them together and then add enough cornstarch to cover your fruit mixture. Then I let it sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes because I needed to workout. Oxymoron. Roll with it.
I then roll out the puff pastry into a good rectangle shape and fixed any holes.
