When I was growing up, I loved McDonald’s apple pies. But who loves these ingredients?
Apples, enriched flour (bleached wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), water, shortening [palm oil, soy lecithin, artificial flavor, beta carotene (color)], sugar, high fructose corn syrup, contains 2% or less of the following: food starch-modified, sorbitol, dextrose, brown sugar, sodium alginate, sodium citrate, sodium phosphate, dicalcium phosphate, yeast, salt, dehydrated apple powder, natural (plant source) and artificial flavors, nutmeg, preservatives (may contain one of more of the following: ascorbic acid, citric acid, erythorbic acid), enzymes, hydroxylated soy lecithin, L-cysteine (dough conditioner), annatto and turmeric (color), caramel color. Topping: [cinnamon sugar (sugar, cinnamon)].
Not me, for sure.
I wanted to come up with grain free apple turnovers that were fried a bit to crisp up the “shell” and that my kids would love as much as I used to love those little apple pies.
This recipe is incredibly simple and will not disappoint even your harshest critic! The shell is light, crispy and flakey and the inside filling is divine!
