I’ll eat a nice, big bowl of cereal for dinner when I’m too tired to cook and be perfectly satisfied. But on weekends, I get the urge to treat my family to a delicious, not-out-of-a-box breakfast that will totally blow their minds. This recipe, my friends, does just that! My Apple Turnovers with Vanilla Glaze are not only the perfect breakfast pastry, but make a wonderful sweet treat any time of the day! And the smell that fills your kitchen while cooking these scrumptious turnovers is absolutely heavenly!
