Sorry I was a bad TWD blogger last week. I actually made the chocolate souffle but managed not to get pictures. I made individual souffles for a group I had over for dinner. It was not a smart idea to make souffles for the first time while making dinner. Needless to say the souffles did not come out as nicely as I had hoped. My mind failed me and I forgot that mini-souffles didn't need as much time in the oven as one big one. By the time I realized this my mini-souffles had some burned bits on top, but they were still edible - barely. Next time I'll try this while not cooking dinner for six people. Thanks to Susan of She's Becoming DoughMessTic for that selection!
On to this week's selection, Flaky Apple Turnovers, chosen by Julie of Someone's in the Kitchen. Was I the only one thinking about Pepperidge Farm turnovers when I first heard the selection? I think those are the only turnovers I have ever had! The dough is a sour cream based dough (with 3 sticks of butter!), lightly sweetened with a simple filling of apples, sugar, cinnamon and flour. My problem was the dough, it was really hard to put together and roll out, even after refrigeration. I believe part of the problem is my lousy kitchen counter and it's bumpy tiles. I really need a nice smooth place to roll out my dough. In the end I made a massive mess in the kitchen but the turnovers got made. The shape was more like a lumpy roll than a turnover though, my dough didn't want to stay together so I had to wrap the dough around the filling. These were really good, I sent them with Doug for his game night last week and he brought me home an empty plate so I'm assuming they were a hit with the guys. Thanks again Jules for selection, it was very 'fall'!
p.s. This is my 200th post, hopefully my blogging has improved since the first post!
