Sweet Melissa Sundays - Caramel Apple Turnovers with Sweet Ricotta Filling

Oh, that's right... I've joined another group! :) Sweet Melissa Sunday's started two weeks ago and I knew I had to join! We are baking once a week out of "The Sweet Melissa Baking Book" by Melissa Murphy. This book is full of fantastic recipes that I can't wait to make! The first two recipes were Honey Beescotti (seriously, just the name made me want to join!) and Brooklyn Brownout Cake, both of which I will be making soon.

This weeks recipe was Caramel Apple Turnovers with Sweet Ricotta Filling. Yum, yum, yum! I love apple turnovers and these were fantastic! They weren't difficult to put together and not very time consuming. I made them Friday night and put them in the fridge to firm up overnight. I popped them in the oven Saturday morning and had warm, delicious apple turnovers for breakfast. I really enjoyed the orange zest in the ricotta... it really stood out for me! I will definately be making these over and over again!


My pictures REALLY don't do these justice!!!




Head on over to Tracey's Culinary Adventures for the recipe and then head to the bookstore and pick up a copy of this fantastic cookbook! And if you want to join us as we bake our way through, click here!

This looks like a great recipe. I think I'll leave out the ricotta as well.

I LOVE apple turnovers but have been afraid to try making my own. Now I see I just have to get over myself.

Yep, just might have to rush to the bookstore and buy the book!

Great post. Thanks for sharing.

Glad you liked them! They were a big hit with me too....perhaps too big. I've already eaten half of them myself. Ooops :) Thanks for baking with me!

So smart of you to make these the night before - hot turnovers for breakfast sound pretty darned delicious! I thought the orange in the ricotta was the best part. Glad you're in the group.
