Peyton and I visited Riley's Farm for a little fall outing of apple picking.  We got a bunch of apples and I needed the perfect exuse to use them all up.  I love apple season and love how yummy the house smells when I bake up something yummy.  I asked the bakers at Riley's Farm what their secret was to their amazing apple pies.  They told me it was all in the crust and they were right!  It's flaky and buttery perfection.  I decided to make apple turnovers for our sweet treat and bring back the flaky gorgeous crust of Riley's Farm's bakery.   I love turnovers because they are flaky and delicious and so easy. Even better, they aren't frowned upon as a breakfast treat.  Winning! Here is my super easy and quick recipe for our sweet, delicious Apple Turnover.
