Pumpkin Pie Turnovers

Pumpkin Pie Turnovers Experience

My Experience with Turnovers is personal.  When I was a child, I was babysat by a family that owned an A&W shop that went belly up.  I stayed good friends with their son for years and eventually they got back on their feet and bought a bakery.  They delivered bread to local restaurants, sold all kinds of desserts, cakes, pies, donuts and of course Turnovers.  And just like the Poor Man’s Gourmet Kitchen, they didn’t care too much for waste.  So anything left over would often find its way home.  It wasn’t often, but sometimes my friends would offer me a slice here or there.  But, my absolute favorite was the turnovers.  I’m not sure they ever made Pumpkin Pie Turnovers, per say but I sure had my fair share of Apple, Lemon and Raspberry.

Be sure to check out my Pumpkin Pie Milkshake.  It’s so good and easy to make. You can even use leftover pumpkin pie as the base.

Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries Ingredients:

1 Sweet Potato, Orange or White
Frying Oil
Season Salt to taste
Dipping Sauces

Barbecue Fry Sauce
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
3 tbsp Barbecue Sauce
1/2 tsp Soy Sauce

Spicy Mayo
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
1 1/2 tbsp Sriracha

Pealing the Sweet Potato is optional, but you want to cut the ends off, then slice into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices.  Fry at 350 degrees for 6 to 8 Minutes then place on paper towels.  Immediately Salt with Seasoned Salt before the Sweet potato Fries cool down.  This allows the seasoning to stick better.  For the dipping Sauces, just mix all the ingredients for each one and stir until it’s smooth, then serve.
