"I saw this being made on sunrise television programme and just had to try it. These are so easy, and make a very nice dessert. I used fresh apples and they turned out fantastic. I dusted the tops with some icing sugar and served with cream, the family loved them."

WAY too good and not hard to make and just as good as the over priced turnovers from the store. Saved to make again for sure, thanks Tisme!

Very good and so easy! We used two apples and regular sugar to make this recipe. I also used raspberry jam instead of the strawberry and skipped the extra sugar. Served with a frittata for a great Sunday night supper. Thanks for sharing!
