Warm Apple Turnovers  

After our trip to the farm for pumpkins and apples..I have a beautiful basket of apples sitting in my kitchen. So today I decided to bake a little treat for my sweetie. He is working outdoors today on the roof of an old castle on the Hudson River and could use a warm, sweet snack when he gets home, I'm sure;)

6 Turnovers
2  ready-made pie crusts  ( or you can make your own if you have more time than I did this afternoon...)
2 large apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2"  pcs
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt   

PreHeat oven to 425 degs. Peel 2 large apples and chop  into 1/2" cubed pieces
 In a large bowl, combine apples, sugar, flour, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside to "marinate" while preparing the crust...
Create a nice dry,  floured surface to work on, and cut small circles out of your rolled out pie crust...I use an old soup can as a "cookie cutter", pressing it down into my rolled out crust to cut nice round circles..then scoop 1/4 cup of the apple mixture onto the center of your little cut crust circle..
Place a second circle crust on top and pinch edges with a fork by gently pressing the fork tongs along the edges all the way around until you have sealed it. I like to brush the tops and edges of the sealed turnovers with a bit of egg white so that when I bake them they get nice and golden brown on the top..
 Place your little pies, evenly spaced, on an ungreased cookie sheet and pop into your 425 oven.. I let mine bake for about 15-20mins, but yours may be done sooner...you'll know they're done when they are lightly browned and the juices have begun to bubble out in certain places..

Happy Baking! Xo
