RECIPE: APPLE TURNOVERS Minnie Size (Great for Dutch Oven)



APPLE TURNOVERS  (Minnie size)


These are easy to prepare and bake.  These can be baked in your kitchen oven on a cookie sheet, in a Dutch Oven, or Deep Fried. 


Ingredients
4          9 inch Uncooked Pie shell dough sheets (Either pre-made store bought, or make homemade)
             You may want to have extra dough just in case...so you can use all the filling
1          21oz Can of Apple Pie Filling
1          tsp Cinnamon
1/8      tsp Salt
3 to 4 Tbsp Butter


In a bowl first slice up the apples into small bits about 1/4 inch.  Next mix in the Cinnamon, and salt.  Set this apple filling mixture aside.

Roll Pie Crust dough to pie crust thickness on a piece of plastic wrap laid out on your counter.  Cut circles of dough (about 3 inch diameter) with a biscuit cutter or the top of a drinking glass or opened can.  Pull up all the trimmed dough pieces.  Ball up the trimmings and roll that out and cut more circles.  Repeat until you have made use of all the dough.

Take a small piece of butter, about the size of half a pea.  Put a small piece of butter into the center of each dough circle.  Next spoon about a 1/2 teaspoon of your pie filling mixture on to the center of each dough circle.  Fold the dough to make a half circle with a pocket of the filling inside.  Seal the edge using fork to press them together.
3 Baking Options
Bake in a preheated 350° oven, on a grease cookie sheet, 8 to 12 minutes .  Or until just starting to brown.
Bake in a preheated 350° Dutch Oven, greased, 8 to 12 minutes.  Or until just starting to brown
Deep Fry at 375° until golden brown.  It won’t take but a minute or two.  Watch them closely.

They can be glazed with cream cheese icing, brushed with a powdered sugar type glaze, or sprinkled with powdered sugar.

This makes a bunch!
