Country Apple Turnovers

When we were snowed in this last weekend, I did a bit of baking.  I made Country Apple Turnovers.  Comfort food warms the heart and the tummy!

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
pie crust

* 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.**

    1. Diane, I think if you find sweet apples, you may not need to add any sweetener. I look forward to your recipe Thursday!

    I enjoyed reading your quote about popcorn and nuns! Sounds like you're having a good time by watching some interesting movies.
