Gluten-Free 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. 

Unfortunately, I misplaced the paper where I wrote down the actual amounts I used for the filling, but it’s really a matter of taste.  Here’s what I think I did:

2 apples
1  - 2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. sugar

I’m sure other sweeteners would work well too.  Chop the apples pretty small then combine them with the cinnamon and sugar.

Make 1 recipe of  pastry dough.  Roll the dough and use a bowl to cut it in circles about 7 – 7 1/2 inches in diameter.  Place some of the apples on half the circle.

Fold the dough over and press the edges together.  Place it on a baking sheet and prick the top of the dough with a fork several times.

Ooh, yum! I imagine you could make all sorts of fruit turnovers with this idea. Yum!
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.
Ooo, tasty! I just love apples and cinnamon!

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. :-)
