Spicy Apple Turnovers
As the summer season starts to finish up, I can’t help but be excited about my second favorite season, fall. For me, fall is the perfect time to start baking and experimenting with flavors and spices. I am obsessed with fall flavors like cinnamon and apple.
Often, I like to use frozen ingredients, but I find that some time it is impossible to find frozen ingredients that are full flavored. At the Summer Fancy Food Show this past June, I got to sample some of DOLE’s new Fruit ‘n’ Spice line. Now, this is what I was looking for.
I participated in Mom Blog Tour at the Summer Fancy Food Show on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers and received DOLE Fruit n’ Spice products to facilitate my review. #MomBlogTourFF
All DOLE Fruit ‘n’ Spice varieties are made with real, all-natural frozen fruit that are combined with chef-inspired spice blends. They’re made with no artificial ingredients and is non-GMO.
I had a hard time choosing which recipe I was going to share with you to highlight the DOLE Fruit ‘n’ Spice blends. I had originally made a pan seared tuna steak with the Chili Lime Mango Chunks on top and even had made a Tropical Vanilla Milkshake with the Honey Lime Pineapple Chunks. But, in the end, I thought these Spicy Apple Turnovers came out the best photographically.
This was my first time dealing with puff pastry and I was shocked at how easy it was to use! I called this recipe spicy because the DOLE Fruit ‘n’ Spice Cinnamon Apples have a kick! Besides cinnamon there is a subtle hint of red pepper that you don’t taste until the very end of your bite. It’s not overly spicy at all and even for someone like me, who doesn’t like heat in her food, it just makes you go “hmm”.
After thawing out your puff pastry, cut each sheet into a square.
Let the DOLE Fruit ‘n’ Spice Cinnamon Apples dethaw. The best part of using these is that there is no need to add any additional ingredients!
Add about two tablespoons of apples on one end of the puff pastry and then fold it over to make a triangle.
Finally, seal with your finger and crimp with a fork.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 15-17 minutes or until the tops are nice golden brown.
