What's the best apple for apple turnovers?

Known as the original hand pie, apple turnovers are an easy, everyday version of the classic apple pie. Their flaky dough and sweet center make for the perfect sugary treat any time of day. Enjoy it with a cup of coffee in the morning or after dinner for dessert.

Golden Delicious and Granny Smith apples are great for baking because their flesh stays in tact even after the baking process. But don’t be afraid to switch things up and add Piñata® into the mix as their natural sweetness works great for pastries.
