This was really good. I found using my little trio dumpling set worked great in making cute little turnover pies. They were tasty and easy to make. Will make these again. And what's really nice is that I can easily change out the flour and pie crust for a gluten free alternative for an inlaw that's going to be visiting! Yeah me. Read More

I had a difficult time rolling a 1/4 pie crust into a circle. I also think adding some sugar to the outside might make it tastier. Overall taste level was as good as I expected. Read More

Instead of "turnovers " I guess I made "baked apple pies " but shaping them differently was the only change. The Splenda provided just enough sweetness. Read More

These were so good. The crust was wonderful on them and I just used an affordable store brand crust. I used the apples I had already which I believe were gala apples. It took about eighteen minutes for my apples to cook down. I used a Norpro mini Apple mold to cut the shapes and help fill and seal them. So I went with round pies. I got four and then pressed out the dough scraps and I got two more. I still used the 3 Tblsp. of filling in each. They were filled plenty. I was left with a good 1/2 cup or a little more of filling. It was no problem because it is fine on its own like a thick apple sauce. I baked the pies on a parchment lined sheet sprayed with Pam. They took twenty minutes to bake. I just wish pie crust was a little more healthy because I want to keep eating more. ty Read More

I'm not a big cooked fruit lover. After accidentally pulverizing my apples (and incidentally making applesauce) I REALLY loved this recipe. My only recommendation is to really make sure you cool down that filling. If you put it onto the pie crust warm you'll have a lot of difficulty putting it onto a cookie sheet. Roll out the crust position it where you want it on the cookie sheet THEN fill it. Otherwise you could end up with a mess. I rolled it out on parchment paper and transferred the turnovers that way. This is really worth trying! Read More

These were near perfect. I did bump up the cinnamon to a tsp. These would be even better with homemade crust... Read More
