As a child, my favourite day of the year was the much-anticipated family trip to one of the gigantic superstores for our annual back-to-school shopping trip.
Beautiful new notebooks. Pens in every colour of the rainbow and the fountain pen I had been dreaming of for month. And -best of all- the promise of warm-from-the-oven classic apple turnovers for le goûter.
It truly was the most wonderful time of the year!
My schoolyears are now far behind me but my love for the puffed up little pockets of autumn joy of my childhood remain.
Light, crisp, buttery, filled with warm cinnamon sprinkled apple and just so goddamn apple-ing!
The ultimate fall snack and the perfect accompaniment to a nice cuppa!
