Apple Turnovers

2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cups of shortening
5 tablespoons of cold water
1 3/4 cups of canned or fresh apples
1/3 cup of packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon of butter
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/3 cup of water
1 tablespoon of flour
1 teaspoon of sugar

Mix the salt and flour together and cut in the shortening.
Add the water a tablespoon at a time.
Form the dough into a ball and roll out on floured surface.
This dough will dry out quickly, so use immediately.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Bring the apples and 1/3 cup of water to a boil in a saucepan, lower the heat and simmer for about five minutes.
Stir in the remaining ingredients, except the butter, and bring to a boil once more.
Boil for about a minute, then add the butter.
Cut you’re dough into circles or squares and fill with the apples.

Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Drizzle a confectioner’s sugar and water glaze over the turnovers when cool.

Did You Know?

Apples absorb odors. They emit ethylene gas, which when placed with other unripe fruits will cause them to ripen quicker.
