Another celebrity recipe. Don't care for apples, but love apple pastry.

I liked this turnover. The crust is just too dry for me to say I love it. I had a really difficult time getting it to keep it's shape when moving from the rolling sheet to the baking tray. It is very easy to make and with a crust improvement here and there, it promises to be 5 stars - at least in my book. Thanks for posting. Made for the I Recommend Tag Game.
