Apple Turnover with Lemon Drizzle Iicing

Apple Turnover

An Apple Turnover is my cake or sweet of choice in a Scottish bakery almost every time

Back in the day, in Scotland I remember Mr Tartan Tastes bringing them home from a Bakers and we would enjoy the delicious fluffy, sweet Turnovers with a hot cup of tea…. Ahhh

It’s something I miss from home immensely

So I just had to make these this week, to curb my cravings for something sweet, sticky and finger licking good

To make Apple Turnovers
