Simple & Sweet Apple Turnovers


Really simple to make: 1 Can apple pie filling(chop coarsely), 
1 Box Refrigerated Pastry Pie crust (2 circles per package), 1 egg, powdered sugar, 
milk, water, almond extract.

Cut out circles with a glass or small bowl. Use knife to score edges. Fill center with 1 TBls. filling.
Wet seam with a small amount of water and press closed.

Score edges with fork or I used a Wilton decorative stitching tool (used for cakes & fondant). 
It is pictured below. 

Beat egg with 1 tsp. Milk and brush on the top of the turnover. 
Yum! The egg wash created this nice browning effect after they were cooked in the oven. So awesome! 
After the turnovers cooled for a while, I glazed them with powdered sugar and 1tsp. water and 1tsp. almond extract. After I mixed the icing I poured the mixture into a Ziploc bad and cut a small hole in the corner. I used it as a make shift pastry bag. Then I drizzled the topping on and allowed it to dry.

Heavenly treats!
Warm, sweet and tasty treat for the Fall season. You can't beat these treats for the holidays.
These beauties remind me of the little Wonder Bread pies that my Dad used to bring home when I was a little girl. What a treat they were. They package up nicely for a great gift.


  1. Mmm... I'm seeing lots of delicious fall recipes and I'm starting to think I may not make it to Dec sane. These fall treats are not really conducive to our spring/summer weather here! AHHH! Eat an extra one for me :)
