The dreaded mid-summer blues have hit our house. Have they arrived at yours? Those endless days when the children decide they’d rather be inside, hanging on your legs, complaining about how there’s nothing to do, than rollicking throughout the culdesac with their friends. I’ve never understood why my kids don’t lap up every second of summer sun, it’s what I’d do if I had summers to do over as a kid. Still, they hit that wall about a week ago, so I pulled them into the kitchen for a bit of entertainment. With just three simple ingredients, I gave the kids free reign in the kitchen and let them go at it, creating their own mini apple turnovers. They loved the task, lapped up their treats, and were more ready than ever to go out and play once their inner creative geniuses had pulled together a few tasty afternoon snacks. Mid-summer blues averted, for another day, at least.
10-Minute Apple Turnovers
- 1 package unbaked crescents
- 1 can apple pie filling
- 1 jar vanilla frosting
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spoon apple pie filling into the wide part of one of your crescent triangles. Use a fork to pinch off the edges. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment. Bake until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
Zap several tablespoons of the frosting in the microwave until melted. Use a spoon to drizzle the melted frosting over your warm, cooked turnovers. Enjoy!
