Whole wheat pastry flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
Butter 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Sour cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Apples 2
Pears 2
Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon
Raisins 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) , plumped
Ground cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
Ground allspice 1/2 Teaspoon
Honey 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Vanilla icing 2 Cup (32 tbs)


Sift flour into a large bowl.

Cut butter into chunks, and then cut into flour with a pastry blender or in a food processor until mixture is crumbly.

Mix in sour cream with a spoon.

Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. (If dough is chilled longer it may be too firm to roll.) Peel, core, and chop apples and pears.

Place them into a large bowl and cover with cold water.

Stir in lemon juice.

Preheat oven to 400 °F.

In 2 batches, roll out dough on lightly floured surface.

Cut into 5-inch squares.

Thoroughly drain apples and pears.

Stir raisins into fruit, and toss with cinnamon and allspice.

Place about 2 tablespoons fruit mixture on one side of each piece of dough.

Drizzle with 1 teaspoon honey.

Fold dough over filling to form a triangle, firmly pressing edges together to seal.

Prick top of each turnover with a fork.

Place turnovers on a baking sheet, and bake on middle shelf of oven about 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
