Sweet Apple Turnover Recipe

Yields1 Serving

This turnover recipe is sure to be a hit at breakfast. It adds a creative touch with a fold-over technique that allows the apple filing to peek through. You can make your own apple filing using your favorite apple pie filling recipe, or you can buy apply pie filling in a can. If you want, you can substitute a different flavor of pie filing like blueberry or strawberry. Once the turnover is assembled it’s glazed with a wash of egg yolk whisked with one teaspoon of water. The glaze gives the turnover a nice, shiny finish and you can dust the top with powdered sugar or regular sugar to add a crunchy sweetness to the crust.
