Ingredients

Granny smith apples 4 , peeled and sliced (Firm Ones, You May Use Any Tart, Firm Apples. This Will Make Enough Apple Mixture For About 4 Dozen 3 ½
Refrigerated pie crust circles 1 (Premade, Each Pre
Water 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Sugar 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Ground allspice 1/4 Teaspoon
All purpose sugar glaze 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (Betty'S)

Directions

Place 4 peeled, sliced apples in a medium-sized saucepan with about ½ cup water. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes, or until tender. Drain well, if the water has not already been absorbed. Mash slightly with a potato masher, leaving some apple pieces in the mixture. Measure 2 1/3 cups apples, reserving remaining apples for other uses. Combine 2 1/3 cups apples, ½ cup sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon allspice, stirring well. Let cool before forming the apple turnovers. When ready to assemble your apple turnovers, unroll a pre-made pie crust, making a flat circle. Use a circle of waxed paper 3 ½-inches across as a pattern to cut out 9 circles of pie crust dough. You may have to rework some scraps of dough to get the last couple of circles. For each turnover, spoon 2 teaspoons pie filling mixture onto center of pastry circle. Fold dough over the filling, pressing edges to seal. (You may need to moisten the edges with water, but they must be completely sealed.) Crimp edges with a fork. Place turnovers on a greased baking sheet or in a sprayed rectangular casserole dish. Bake at 425 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden. Use Betty's All Purpose Sugar Glaze to drizzle over warm turnovers. Serve warm or cold. They are particularly good served warm with vanilla ice cream! Fall season is the perfect time to try this traditional treat! I hope you enjoy it! --Betty
