Apple Turnovers

Apple Turnovers

Here is another example of the kind of tasty treat you can make with my multipurpose pastry dough.  My family really likes these.  They are like individual apple pies, and make a perfect dessert or snack.  Of course, I hope you will experiment and try other fillings.

    yum-o! I think I have missed Apple turnovers more than anything I can think of. My grandmother made them when I was a little girl and I have such fond memories of her making them. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I look forward to trying this.

    Son will especially love these, Linda. He used to love popping by McDonald's for one of their apple pies. (What can I say? He was a teenager.) I'll have to make them for him the next time he's home. :-)

    I tried to access the link to your pastry dough but only got a blank page. Is there somewhere else to view it? Thanks!
