Easy Apple Turnovers

There is nothing quite like good conversation, dessert, and hot coffee after dinner.

Mitchell & I were planning to head over to his grandparents Monday night to hang out and so I could meet his great aunt and great uncle. I wanted to take a dessert but I didn’t want it to be to drawn out because I knew my mom was in the kitchen getting dinner ready.

My first thought was Apple Turnovers, a childhood favorite. I happened to already be in Target (I’d move in if they would let me!) so all I had to grab were crescent rolls!

I put them together in about 15 minutes and they only took 20 to bake- perfect 🙂 They smelled so good cooking that my family practically begged to have them with dinner! I obliged. Even after each of us having one, there were still plenty to share!

2 cups peeled and chopped apples (I used pink ladies. Don’t even consider canned.)

1/3 c sugar

2 tbsp flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon (I adore cinnamon, so I was extra generous here!!)

Dash nutmeg

two 8 oz cans refrigerated crescent rolls 

Glaze:

1/2 c powdered sugar

water to the right consistency

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together first five ingredients; make sure apples are well coated. Take a bite- this mixture is amazing. Roll dough out and separate the 16 triangles. Spoon 1 rounded tbsp of apple mixture into the center of each. Fold dough over the filling, overlapping each corner. Try to close up all the holes! Place each on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Combine glaze ingredients and mix until smooth. Drizzle over the top & lastly,

I couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon/evening! It somehow happened to include most of my favorites! Mitchell and I got into Collierville around 12:30, spent some time at his grandparent’s, then headed to Booyas with my mom! (My all time fave..!)

After Booyas, we had to hit up Target! I tend to have withdrawals while in Starkville with nothing but Walmart! .. It’s rare lately that my mom and I get to go without being in a hurry so this was so much fun!! Thanks Mom

Once we got home, Marley and I went for a quick run before getting ready & heading downtown.

Majestic Grill & Melting Pot were our destinations for the evening! I enjoyed every minute of it! It was so fun to think back on old memories and laugh- It’s crazy to think we’ve spent TWENTY of my birthdays together! So thankful for my parents, grandparents, bros, and M. It feels so clique to say “blessed”… almost even seems like it needs a hashtag before it- haha!- but truly, I am.

3rd birthday together- love it.

After lots of consideration of just about every item on the menu, I decided on Grilled Salmon with a Honey glaze, Sweet Carrots, and Garlic Mashed Potatoes- combined with a few handfuls of their famous parmesan fries we all shared- perfectly satisfying.photo 2

For dessert, we decided on two mixtures for the table. Bananas Foster (which included white chocolate and cinnamon and smelled phenomenal!) and Flaming Turtle (caramel and chocolate, too!- that actually came to the table flaming!). Our “dippers” included fresh strawberries, bananas, graham cracker covered marshmallows, brownies, cheesecake, and red velvet cake!! YUM. We washed it down with coffee. Just like I adore coffee in the morning, I love to have it after dinner.

Around here, we crack up at how long birthdays last.. it goes from one day to a weekend to a week to a month! So you probably will hear more about my entrance into the twenties before this is over..

More than ready to hit the hay now & wake up for more relaxin tomorrow.

I hope your weekend is awesome! The days pass slow, but the years go to fast.

I stumbled upon the cutest little corner of the world wide web tonight, check it out here! I fell in love with her title “Gimme Some Oven”!

I recreated her No Bake Energy Balls for a before dinner, during cooking, and after dinner snack 😉

I adapted her recipe just slightly & the result is simply DIVINE

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup biscoff spread
  • 1/2 cup crumbled honey nut cheerios
  • 1/4 cup craisins
  • 1/3 cup honey

Stir all ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour {the longer the better}. Once chilled, with cheeks stuffed full, roll into balls. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week!

But trust me they won’t last that long!
