Yields: 10 Apple Turnovers
Prep time: 25 min
Cook time: 20 min


Pastry for 9-inch two crust pie*
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
4 to 5 medium tart cooking apples
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 

In a large bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves; set aside.

Peel, core, and slice apples approximately 1/8-inch thick. Toss apple slices in sugar mixture until well coated.

TurnoversPrepare pie pastry. Roll pie crust to a 20-inch x 16-inches rectangle; cut into 10 oblongs pieces. Place prepared apple filling on top of each oblong dough piece. Fold dough over to form a square; prick ends of the dough with a fork. Place the turnovers on a large lightly-buttered baking sheet. Brush milk over top of each turnover and then sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar onto tops.
