Marti Mickkleson isn’t much of a cook, and Grandma Bertie is a ghost, but both would approve of my grandma’s Apple Turnover recipe. Not only do they have cheddar in the crust, we have reason to believe they contain magic.
Bake up a batch and see for yourself!
Grandma's Apple Turnovers
- ½ C butter
- 1½ C flour
- ¾ t salt
- 1½ C shredded cheddar cheese
- ¾ C oats
- ½ C water
- 2 C finely chopped apple
- ⅓ C brown sugar
- ¼ C raisins
- 2 t lemon juice
- ¾ t cinnamon
- ¼ t salt
- 1 T flour
- ¾ C powdered sugar
- lemon or apple juice
- Preheat oven to 375°.
- Mix Butter and flour until crumbly.
- Add other dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
- Stir in water.
- Roll dough into a log and slice into 12 equally sized peices. With a rolling pin, roll out each piece into a circle about 5 inches in diameter.
- Mix all ingredients into the finely chopped apples. (If the apples are extra juicy, add a little more flour.)
Making the Pies
- Place a scant ¼ cup filling on each circle.
- Fold over the circles and seal edges with a fork. Cut a small slit in top of each and place on ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes (or until lightly browned) at 375°.
- Add lemon or apple juice (lemon is the best!) to powdered sugar, a little at a time, until it’s a drizzle consistency. Spoon over turnovers.
