I came up with the idea that I'd try to make an apple turnover, using rice paper. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I found this recipe. Thank you ... it is almost exactly as I would have made it. Not sure what size rice paper you used, as I have two sizes here, but I will experiment and see what happens. Thanks.

The texture after baking was gummy and tough. It required a knife to cut through. I subbed pecans for walnuts and plain granulated white sugar for caster sugar, but I don' think that should make a difference. If I make these again, I'll also use a sweeter apple variety, less lemon juice, or more brown sugar.

The recipe mentions cinnamon in the instructions but not in the ingredients list. I sprinkled on enough to be obvious on the apple slices, which was about right. Maybe a teaspoon or so?
