When is Apple Turnover Day?

It's national apple turnover day on the 5th July.

What's the Deal with National Apple Turnover Day?

On this delicious day, we celebrate the irresistible combination of buttery pastry and warm, gooey apples. If you're wondering who came up with the genius idea of turning apples into a portable dessert, those English folks should take the credit. Apple turnovers have been a popular treat in England for centuries, and lucky for us, they made their way across the pond to America.

Why limit yourself to a plain apple pie when you can enjoy a handheld version filled with cinnamon-spiced apples? These golden-brown pastries are perfect for any time of day, whether you're starting your morning with a sweet breakfast or sneaking a treat during a mid-afternoon snack break.

Celebrate National Apple Turnover Day by baking your own turnovers filled with your favorite apple variety, or head to your favorite bakery to indulge in their flaky creations. Just be warned, once you take that first bite, you may find it impossible to resist going back for seconds!

Did you know?

Did you know that the largest apple turnover ever made measured over 5 feet in diameter? It was created in Scotland, and if you ask me, that's one seriously giant pastry!
