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 :)
