Grandma’s Apple Turnovers

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


INGREDIENTS
Pastry

  • ½ C butter
  • 1½ C flour
  • ¾ t salt
  • 1½ C shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¾ C oats
  • ½ C water

Filling

  • 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

Glaze

  • ¾ C powdered sugar
  • lemon or apple juice

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.

Pastry Dough

  1. Mix Butter and flour until crumbly.
  2. Add other dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  3. Stir in water.
  4. 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.

Filling

  1. Mix all ingredients into the finely chopped apples. (If the apples are extra juicy, add a little more flour.)

Making the Pies

  1. Place a scant ¼ cup filling on each circle.
  2. Fold over the circles and seal edges with a fork. Cut a small slit in top of each and place on ungreased baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes (or until lightly browned) at 375°.

Glaze

  1. 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.

Enjoy!
