Very easy! I must say that I used my mandolin slicer on the thin blade and swiped 2 small Gala apples for the pot. After they simmered down in there, I really didn't think I had enough filling! I nearly added a can of apple filling that I had in the pantry out of sheer panic, but after spreading the mixture on only half of the dough circle-it was just the right amount! After baking, I cut the large half-moon shaped turnover into 4 equal wedges (like a pizza) and put them in the refrigerator to wait for our lunch boxes. You can eat them cold or nuke them for 30 seconds...they really do taste juste like a hot apple pie! Thanks for this little wonder!
Need to use up some apples and made for an afternoon treat. I had download this recipe from Pillsbury website and saw that it was all ready posted. I used 2 cups apple and added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. I would add more cinnamon next time. I think this needs some sort of topping such as cool whip, ice cream or a light icing glaze. Tasted like an apple turnover. Thanks DuChick
Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game (Feb '08 - Jan '09). This is an awesome idea. My DH loves pie, but I always shy away from making pies because I usually ending up eating more than I should. With this recipe, we only have just what we need. The filling was great and I was able to use my GF pie crust recipe. Thanks for posting thid DuChick! I'll most certainly make this again.
