Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine brown sugar and pecans; set aside. In food processor combine flour, 1/2 cup of the cheese, granulated sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cover and process with one on/off turn. Add butter. Cover and process with several on/off turns until size of small peas. With processor running, slowly add water to make dough come together in a ball. Gently knead until smooth.
  3. Divide dough in 8 pieces. For each bundle, on floured surface roll dough in an 8-inch circle. Place 3 tablespoons cheese and 1/4 cup apple in center. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon nut mixture. Brush dough edges with water. Bring up dough edges and press together to seal. Sealed sides up, place on parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake 20-25 minutes or until pastry is golden. Spoon preserves on each bundle. Cool 20 minutes on baking sheet. Serve warm.
