Granny smith apples 1 Pound , cored, pared, and finely chopped
Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon
Granulated sugar 1/2 Teaspoon
Ground cinnamon 1/2 Teaspoon
Refrigerated 9 inch pie crust 1 (Ready To Bake)
Confectioners' sugar 2 Tablespoon
Grated orange peel 1 Teaspoon


1. Preheat oven to 425°F. In 1-quart saucepan combine apples, lemon juice, granulated sugar, and cinnamon and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until apples are very soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; set aside.

2. On work surface roll pie crust into a 16 x 8-inch rectangle; cut rectangle into eight 4 x 4-inch squares. Spoon an equal amount of apple mixture onto center of each square. Fold square in half, forming a triangle. Using tines of fork, press edges to seal.

3. Arrange turnovers on nonstick baking sheet and bake in middle of center oven rack until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove to wire rack and let cool.

4. While turnovers cool, prepare icing. In small bowl combine confectioners' sugar, orange peel, and 1 teaspoon water, mixing to form icing; decoratively drizzle icing over turnovers.
