Title: Apple Turnovers
Yield: 6 Servings
Categories: Cheese, Fruits, Pies


2 1/4 c Unbleached Flour
1/4 ts Salt
2/3 c Vegetable Shortening
6 oz Cheddar; Sharp, Shredded
3/4 c Brown Sugar; Firmly Packed
1 ts Cinnamon; Ground
6 Apples; Pared And Cored
1/4 c Butter

Heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Combine the flour and salt, mixing well,
then cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sir
in the cheese and sprinkle with water while mixing lightly with a fork,
(From 6 to 8 Tbls of water maybe required), continue mixing until dough
makes a ball. Divide the dough into three equal portions and roll each
portion, on a lightly flour surface, into a 14 X 7-inch rectangle. Cut
each rectangle into 2 7-inch squares. Combine the brown sugar and
cinnamon, then fill the centers of the apples topping each apple with
butter. Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar mixture over the pastry.
Place an apple in each square and fold the corners to the center, pinching
the dough at the top of the apple to seal. Bake in the preheated oven for
30 to 35 minutes. Top with whipped cream.
