Chocolate Walnut Turnovers


One of my favorite movie lines is when McLintock, after an outrageous demand from his daughter to protect her good name, points a gun at young Devlin Warren and tells his daughter in a rather matter-of-factly kind of way, “Well, I’m your father, and I love you” while pulling the trigger. If you’ve never seen McLintock, this sounds like a rather heartless scene, but it was a blank, Devlin was fine, and it resulted in a spanking for the mouthy daughter.

I can’t help but think of my own father every time  hear that line. I’m not sure I could ever convince him to fire a blank at someone, for dramatic effect or other wise, but the statement rings true.

What does all this nonsense have to do with turnovers? As I was thinking of how to describe these to you, all I could think was that they were a must make for your loved ones (which put that line in my head as I was rolling out the pastry and preparing these). See, it all comes together.

So, if you love your family, make them these. Then watch McLintock. Seriously, it maybe my favorite movie ever.
