Delightful! This is was superb. If you like your apples very tender, toss them in a skillet or saucepan with one tablespoon of butter and the teaspoon of sugar over medium heat for ten minutes while your oven preheats. Pour one tablespoon of water into your apples and remove from heat. Let the apples cool a bit before filling the turnover.

Made it. Devoured it. With every bite I was dreaming of making it again. So happy this was the recipe I followed!
