A brand spanking new Gooseberry Patch cookbook, Hometown Harvest, is up for grabs. Hometown Harvest is a great cookbook although I may be biased since fall is my favorite time of year. This book has several wonderful chapters, Hometown Pancake Breakfast, Church Social Soup Supper, Thanksgiving Dinner to remember, Game Day Get-Together, Pumpkin Patch Sweets, Slow-Cooker Potluck Pleasers, and Over the River and Through the Woods. All are chock full of wonderful recipes from home cooks like yourself. I even have a recipe in this book ~ Buttermilk Pecan Waffles. The last chapter is is full of memories from readers and customers of Gooseberry Patch products.
After the recipe will be all the “rules” for this giveaway!
The first recipe I tried from this cookbook is Mini Apple Turnovers. They are super simple to make and would be perfect for unexpected guests or for tea time.
Mini Apple Turnovers
Submitted by Robyn Stroh, Calera, AL
2 9-inch pie crusts, homemade or store bought
21 ounce can apple pie filling
1 egg white
1 tbsp water
Place one crust on a lightly floured surface. With a 3 inch biscuit cutter, cut out as many circles as you can. I used a slightly bigger cutter and got about 7 rounds from each crust.
Top each circle with 1 to 2 teaspoons pie filling, cutting up the apples if necessary. I placed my apples toward one side so it would be easier to close. Fold circles in half and crimp the edges wiht a fork dipped in water.
Place on lightly creased cookie sheets. Repeat with second crust.
In a small bowl, beat egg white and water together and brush over turnovers.
Bake at 425º for 8-12 minutes or until golden.
Makes 12-14 turnovers.
