Honey IPA and Caramel Apple Turnover
We worked with Happy Hour Confections (Beer Infused Baked Goods) to develop a custom recipe for our hoppiest flavor. And don’t worry – there’s beer in the turnover, too. And the caramel. What did you expect?
Caramel Apple Turnover with Honey IPA Ice Cream & Caramel Sauce
2 ½ cups flour
2 sticks butter (cold and cubed)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
¼ to ½ cup cold IPA or Pale Ale (We love O’Dempsey’s Inukshuk IPA)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
Combine flour, cinnamon, salt and sugar in a large bowl and stir to combine. Cut in cold butter. Add enough beer to bring the dough together. Form into a ball and chill for 2 hours.
5 Granny Smith Apples
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
½ cup IPA or pale ale (such as O’Dempsey’s Inukshuk IPA)
1 cup brown sugar
6 tablespoons of Happy Hour Confection’s Porter Caramel
Peel the apples and cut into small cubes. Put in a saucepan with the other ingredients and cook until the apples are softer but not mushy. Set aside to cool.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Allow dough to come back to room temperature and roll out to about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Cut the dough into 3 inch squares. Spoon the apple mixture in the center and add one tablespoon of Porter Caramel. Fold the dough over to make a triangular turnover. Use a fork to crimp the edges. Brush the top of the turnover with a beaten egg and sprinkle with a little bit of sugar. Bake on parchment paper for 35 minutes.
Best served warm on a plate with 1-3 scoops of Honey IPA ice cream, drizzled with caramel sauce.
