Apple Turnovers
(Wal-mart Friendly)

This week, I made apple turnovers using a recipe and a recipe idea.

Here’s my apple turnovers crust recipe:
2 C water
2 T honey (you can use sugar in the raw turbinado sugar as a substitute)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
5 c. whole wheat flour

Combine and mix in a bowl. When I added yeast to this recipe, I made my first pizza crust for 2012, and when I was rolling it into a ball, the recipe was perfect when I used whole wheat flour. For my apple turnovers, I used white whole wheat flour from Walmart and about 1/8 of a cup of flour really didn’t stick to the ball, but that’s a very minor point. The white whole wheat flour bag actually does say that when using this flour, you’re supposed to use less of it, which is true in my experience.

Next week, I plan to use the crust to make a savory entree.

Click here to get my apple filling recipe idea. One tip: to thicken the apple filling, I would start out with 1/4 C cornstarch mixed with 1/4 C of water. If that isn’t thickened to your liking, then add more cornstarch mixed with water. (The non-GMO cornstarch is the best, which I believe you’ll have to obtain it outside of Walmart.)

The apple turnover tastes good when you bite into the crust and the apple filling. At least for the edges, you need to make extra filling so you can dip turnover in it. That way, you’ll have the best experience with your turnovers.

These two recipes yielded 9 big turnovers.
