Directions See How It's Made
- Turn on oven to 375 degrees. Open the package of piecrusts and remove 1 crust (save the remaining crust for another use). On a lightly floured surface, unfold piecrust following package directions. Use kitchen scissors to cut piecrust into 4 wedges.
- Using a vegetable peeler, carefully cut the skin off the pear (throw away skin). Place the pear on cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut the pear in half. Cut one half into two pieces (save remaining pear half for another use or eat it for a snack). Cut out the core and throw it away. Cut pear into small pieces (you should have 1/4 of a cup). Spoon about 2 tablespoons pie filling and 1 tablespoon chopped pear into center of each pastry wedge.
- Use a pastry brush and a little water to moisten edges of pastry. Fold one straight side of one wedge over filling to the other straight side to form a smaller wedge. Press edges together with tines of a fork to seal. Prick top with fork. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining wedges, pie filling, and pear.
- Place baking sheet in oven. Bake about 20 minutes or until pastry is golden. Turn off oven. Use hot pads to remove baking sheet from oven. Use a pancake turner to transfer turnovers to a cooling rack. Serve warm turnovers with ice cream or whipped topping, if you like.
