Cottage Cheese Pufflets & Flaky Apple Turnovers -- Tuesdays with Dorie

I'm late for TWD! My oldest started pre-k on Monday and we've been so busy this week I didn't get a chance to post yesterday. Our treat this week is Cottage Cheese Pufflets, picked for us to try by Jacque of Daisy Lane Cakes, thank you Jacque! You can find the recipe here at her site. These fun little turnover pastries were delicious but like many people have mentioned, the dough was a little tricky to work with, possibly because of the humidity here lately. I ended up filling mine with blackberry jam, but any jam or even a savory filling would work with these.

I also have a Tuesdays with Dorie treat that I missed posting last Tuesday, Flaky Apple Turnovers, picked for us by Julie of
Someone’s in the Kitchen, thank you Julie! You can find the recipe for these delicious turnovers here at her site.

Apple turnovers are a favorite here, so I was really excited to make these. This recipe was great! I loved the flaky sour cream dough and the simple apple filling. My husband gave these 4 out of 5 stars, a star was apparently lost because the turnovers weren't big enough, ha!

We really liked both treats. I personally have a soft spot for filled things, whether they be raviolis, mini pies, turnovers, cookies, whatever they are if they have a filling they have already won me over :)

I love filled treats too. One TWD gal used Figs in hers..I thought that sounded wonderful!
Your pufflets look puffy and good. I thought they were a pain to make but the end result was so good.

How exciting you have one starting K! It's a special time.

I love how your husband deducted a star because of the size. Too funny!

I'm glad you enjoyed them both so much. I agree that the apple turnovers were yummy.

Thanks for baking along this week.
