It’s such a Dutch tradition to eat apple turnovers on New Year’s Eve. But I think it’s a complete waste to only eat these delicious apple turnovers on that day, so I eat them all year round…yummy!
Whenever I want a quick substitute for an apple pie, I make these apple turnovers. They are a perfect snack, and kids absolutely love them too!
