I didn't have what I needed to make my own crust but I did have a couple of boxes of Pillsbury premade pie crusts. I bought them on sale right before the holidays ~ just in case!
Country Apple Turnovers
2-3 medium tart baking apples
1/4 c sugar
2 tsp all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
1 egg white, slightly whipped
cinnamon sugar to sprinkle
* Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Peel, core, and chop apples into 1/4" pieces.
* In medium bow, combine apples, sugar, flour, and spices. Toss gently. Set aside.
* Roll pie crust into approximately 9" circle. With a knife, slice the dough into 4 equal parts.
* Slightly whip 1 egg white. With a pastry brush, brush the egg white along the edges of each section of pie. This will serve as "glue" to seal the turnovers.
* Place approximately 2-3 tablespoons of apple mixture onto each pie section.
* Fold dough over, press edges together, and crimp them.
* Brush the turnovers with additional egg white. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Poke a few holes into each turnover.
* Bake until bubbling ~ about 18 minutes ~ until lightly brown. Let turnovers cool.
Makes approximately 4 turnovers per pie crust circle. I used two crusts and made 8 turnovers.
**The measurements of sugar/flour/cinnamon/nutmeg are what the recipe states but I tweak it until it has the sweetness/flavor that I want.**
