Crispy Apple Turnovers

Since I made the mini apple crumble on Monday, my family has been requesting me for my apple turnovers. How can I say no to them, right? The ingredients and steps are pretty similar to the apple crumble. Just that I had to get more apples since I used up the remaining on Monday. Always happy to pop down to the grocery store and somehow, I always managed to fill up my shopping basket with items other than on the shopping list. My version of a walk-in wardrobe is a room with shelves filled with all sorts of spices, ingredients, cooking tools, left, right and centre (think Masterchef pantry).
