Monday was a busy day of running around and baking. I actually bought some fresh fruit to make these
And ya know what? They turned out pretty good!* I made 4 of the “traditional triangle” that we’re all familiar with, and 8 of the rectangle that you saw in yesterday’s post (which are sitting in the freezer waiting for this weekend). All apple, because it was easy (which is obviously the way to go).
Of course I cheated and bought the phyllo dough because… have you ever tried to make that stuff yourself? It takes like 3 days and you have to have the patience of Mother Theresa and the muscles of Lou Ferrigno to pull it off!
OK, I may be exaggerating a tad, but not by much. Here’s my fear: I’m gonna take the time and energy (and flour, butter and other crap) and with my luck I’ll end up with hockey pucks instead of light fluffy turnovers. Some of my fears may be irrational, but I don’t think I’m too far off the mark on this one.
And if I do decide to be Betty f’n Crocker and make the homemade stuff, you’ll know I’ve finally headed down the road to Crazyville.
At least I won’t be lonely… I’ll have all of you there with me.
*My taste tester loved them.
