Apple Turnover Pie Crust

Looking for naturally sweet bite that brightens up the day? Let’s make some apple turnovers and open the door for even more!

As I lately have a little time, I was surfing on the web a few days ago. Trying to get fresh, intriguing ideas, inspiring dishes that I’ve never used before, to amaze my family with. Hunting for a long time unfortunately could not come across any interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I ran across this tempting and easy dessert simply by chance. The dessert looked so delicious on its snapshot, it called for prompt actions.

It absolutely was simple enough to imagine the way it’s made, how it tastes and just how much my husband will probably want it. Actually, it is quite simple to delight the man when it comes to desserts. Yes, I’m a lucky one. Or possibly he is.Anyways, I got into the website: Suncakemom and simply used the step-by-step instuctions that were combined with wonderful photographs of the method. It just makes life faster and easier. I could imagine that it’s a bit of a hassle to take snap shots down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you most often have sticky hands so that i pretty appreciate the effort and time she placed in to build this post .

With that in mind I am empowered presenting my own, personal recipe in a similar way. Many thanks the idea.

I had been fine tuning the main mixture create it for the taste of my family. I can tell you it had been an incredible success. They prized the flavour, the thickness and loved getting a delicacy such as this in the middle of a hectic workweek. They basically wanted lots more, many more. Thus the next time I’m not going to make the same miscalculation. I am likely to double the volume to make them delighted.

You can find the original Apple Turnover Filling at SunCakeMom


Place the peeled and grated apples into a mixing bowl.

The time has already come to use any optional sweetener of choice. Try to keep it low as apples are generally sweet enough and don’t really require extra sweeteners. Sprinkle the ground cinnamon on top and mix it well together.

While adding about a quarter cup of water pour the filling int a saucepan to cook. Cook apple in medium heat, stir occasionally for about 5 – 10 minutes. Replace the amount of water that evaporates if a more jucy filling is desired otherwise not necessary.

Meanwhile the apple is cooking mix a spoonful of cornstarch, teaspoon of optional vanilla extract and some water in a bowl. When added to the apple sauce this will thicken it somewhat so if we want a denser filling add more cornstarch. Optionally we can skip this step entirely.

Pour the liquid into the cooked apple mixture then stir vigorously.

Take it off the heat when it starts to boil and set aside the saucepan with the filling whilst we’re making the dough. The cooler the filling gets the better as handling buttery pastry with hot filling isn’t one of the easiest task in the kitchen.

Apple turnover dough

Measure flour, butter, baking powder and pour it into a mixing bowl with and egg. (soften or even melt the butter a bit as it will be hard to knead it otherwise)

Add the water. Water is crucial ingredient that activates gluten in the flour that holds together the whole pie from falling apart into a shapeless brown mass in the hot oil pan. Knead it well together by hand until the dough comes together and not sticking to the hands or the side of the bowl.

Divide it into nine pieces of the same size.

Make 9 little balls out of them.


Sprinkle some flour on the board and put one ball in the middle.

Flatten it with a rolling pin then put some filling on one side of the dough.

Fold it in half. A help of a spatula may be needed to pick up the flattened dough nicely.

Press the dough together by hand or with a fork. Make sure there aren’t any gaps where the filling could escape. Remove the excess dough if necessary and make new balls from them. Repeat until the dough runs out.

Pour oil into a frying pan and heat it in medium to high heat. Drop a tiny piece of dough into the oil. If it starts sizzling, we can put the first two apple turnovers into the oil to fry. In about 1 -3 minutes (maybe more, depending on the cooktop turn it round to fry the other side too.
