I followed the recipe to the mark... They did not come out golden but they did come out perfectly after I doctor'd it up a bit. I added 1/4 of pure maraschino cherry juice right after I turned the heat off and mixed it a little and let it sit while I prepared my pastry work area. I also brushed softened butter on the top after they'd been out of the oven for a few minutes and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top. Superb! I didn't give it 5 stars because I still think they could be better. I'll keep trying!

The cream cheese really gives this a distinct taste...yum, yum. I actually only used the dough portion of this recipe and used some homemade apple-pie filling I had in the freezer. I made these for a Homeless Dinner around Thanksgiving & used the leftover dough to make mini ones (or tasters) for my family. After trying them my hubby suggested a drizzle glaze for the top which I am trying now (the next day b/c my fam was disappointed in only gettin 2 mini ones apiece...lol). Thank you for a wonderful base recipe...I'm sure the actual recipe is amazing too...judging by the portion I used! <3

the dough was a lot easier to work with than other pastry doughs i have worked with and i loved that it was still tender after baking. yum! ran out of apples with about 4 left to fill so i whipped up a blueberry filling. i'm sure i will use this recipe for many things!

These turned out great! At the end of rolling and cutting the dough started to get really sticky and didn't hold together...that's why its very important to chill the dough. I did chill the dough but it took me a bit longer to roll it out than planned. They taste and look great! Thanks Keen5 for this recipe!

My family and I loved these, I have made them 3 times now with the apple filling since the it is the fruit of the seaason. But today I am making them with a strawberry filling made from frozen strawberries I had frozen in the summer. Honestly, the dough is terrific; later in the week I am using the dough to make a meat empanada. I am replacing my current go to dough recipe with this one. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe. SaderBee. :D

I enjoyed the filling of these turnovers and the crust was alright, but it wasn't my favorite. I did use Neaufchatel cheese instead of Cream cheese to cut the fat a little and I added a bit of nutmeg. Other people at my meeting seemed to enjoy them though. Thanks

YUM. I made these for an upcoming roadtrip (they're pretty handy and "self-contained", less likely to make a mess in the car). They were great, and as I made them the night before, half of them were GONE before we even left for the trip! I followed the directions as written (used about 8 small apples) and had quite a bit of filling left over...next time I might go with 5 small apples. THANKS FOR SHARING!
