TWD- Flaky Apple Turnovers

I always approach pastry recipes with a little apprehension- I don’t love cutting butter into flour until it “resembles crumbs.” But this recipe sounded so good and easy, I was excited to make it. Chosen by Julie of Someone’s in the Kitchen, this recipe was pretty easy, although it required more dough-chilling than I like. I admit I skipped the second chill- I rolled it out between waxed paper, cut the circles and put it in the freezer for a few minutes. Then I peeled the circles off, filled and baked them.
I quartered the recipe and still got close to 8 turnovers. This pic was taken by husband before he ate them all. 🙂

    I find pies fairly daunting myself, and that's mostly because of the crust. I'm just not good at it. I usually have a more successful turnout if I use the food processor, but for some reason I didn't use it for these!I loved the dough, though. I'm intrigued by skipping the second chill; did you find they turned out good and flakey that way? I'm all for shortcuts!
