If you’re a fan of apple turnovers, you’re going to like these apple and pear turnovers for Thanksgiving.

“These apple turnovers are what I like to make on a chilly autumn evening with a cup of coffee on the side,” stated Shinta Simon of the weblog CaramelTintedLife.com. “They taste so much better than what we get in the stores here and come out perfectly crisp (no soggy crust!). My kids love them, and we like to think of them as shortcut apple pie without the fuss and stress of making a pie from scratch!
