Apple Turnovers

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We made these turnovers using leftover pie dough. (see pie dough recipe)
I’m going to post these turnovers using one filling, but we’ve also filled them with a cream cheese and fig spread combination (2 parts cream cheese, one part fig spread, mixed together in a bowl). The sky it the limit when it comes to the fillings. We like to experiment with whatever we have around the house.
I’m not going to give the amount of filling you need, that will depend on how much dough you have and how many turnovers it will yeild. I’ll just tell you how much we put in each turnover.

Filling

apple, sliced very thin and cut into 1x 1/2 inch pieces
cinnamon, season to your taste
sugar, season to your taste
almond paste
cream cheese
2 Tbsp. butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375.
In a bowl, mix the apple slices with cinnamon and sugar.
Roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness and cut into 3 x 4 inch rectangular pieces.
Put a dab of almond paste in middle of rectangle, then on top of that a dab of cream cheese, then on top of that 4 or 5 (or however many fit) small slices of the apple mixture.
Brush a small amount of melted butter around the edge of the dough, fold over and seal by pushing your fingers into the dough.
Place on a cookie sheet which is covered with non-stick aliminum foil, then brush the tops with melted butter and sprinkle with a little sugar.
Cut a few slices into the tops of each turnover to let the steam escape.
Put in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the tops are golden.

Oh so good with a cup of coffee in the morning……enjoy!
