Caramel Apple Turnovers with Sweet Ricotta Filling

24 comments
Wowsers! This really is something I would never have picked out of this book if left to my own devices but I sure am glad someone else had the amazing sense too. That someone is Tracy of the fabulous blog Tracy's Culinary Adventures . I love these turnovers, they were so unbelievably simple to make and they make for a killer breakfast!!


Like the recipe stated, I drained the ricotta 24 hours in advance but when I awoke the following morning, there was no excess moisture in the bowl. How odd, I thought, so proceeded to squeeze my cheese cloth till a little of the water dribbled out. I left the bowl a satisfied woman. The apples were also super easy, I've never made caramel before but found it quite an easy process, even leaving it to catch a little bit of Scrubs on TV. I had to force myself to leave the caramelized apples alone at one point, it looks so delicious I was itching for a little spoon full.


They browned a little more than I would have liked but that's all down to my vanity and wanting to be washed and dried for my boy coming home from work. They toasted up a little while I was soaping myself in the bath, ooops. Although I really enjoyed these turnovers I think I'd prefer something in place of the ricotta, maybe a mascarpone based filling would be nice. I just think it needs to be a little creamier, maybe that's just me.


I will definitely make these again, so easy, so tasty, so satisfying. Check out the Sweet Melissa Sunday blogroll for everyone else's attempts :)

  1. They look so delicious, golden and puffy! Do like the idea of mascarpone instead of the ricotta, prefer the naughty creaminess!

  5. I love the idea of using mascarpone in place of the ricotta -- I bet that would be so delicious. I want to make these again with peaches this summer. Peaches & mascarpone? I think that would be such a great combo! Your turnovers look delightful!

  10. So far, I haven't heard of anyone actually getting any liquid out of their ricotta! How funny. I too have been thinking that maybe mascarpone would be tasty!

  16. Before using this recipe as an excuse to make homemade ricotta, I was actually thinking of "cheating" and using cream cheese instead. Not sure if that would have made it creamy. These turnovers were definitely fun to make. I like how yours turned out so puffy.
