Apple(sauce) Turnovers

That puffed up very nicely

That puffed up very nicely

So maybe someone made too much applesauce a day or two ago. Then maybe someone’s wife invited over a few folks for dinner. What to do for dessert?

This could work fairly well.

Any sweet fruit filling can be used in this. Heck fresh apples could be chopped up and added with the applesauce if the mood strikes right.

Apple Sauce Turnovers

Roll out pie dough and cut into rectangles 3″x6. Place 3-5 tbsp applesauce on the center of half of the rectangle. Brush the rest of the dough with egg wash and fold over filling to make a square. Fold all the edges together and place on a greased baking sheet. Continue until all dough is used up. Brush the outside of the turnovers with remaining egg wash and sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar. Bake in a preheated oven at 365 degrees until done, about 25 minutes. Serve hot with ice cream or whipped cream.
