DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pastry.
  • 1. Combine flour, salt and mix.
  • 2. Cut lard into the flour/salt mix until it looks like peas.
  • 3. Add very cold water and mix, being careful not to over knead.
  • 4. Shape into a ball and cut in half, this makes it easier to work with.

  • Filling.
  • 1. Add diced apple to middle of the square, sprinkle with sugar and grate the cinnamon over top.

  • 3. Spread the melted butter thinly over top, sprinkle sugar and grate more cinnamon on top.
  • 4. Place turnovers on a non stick cookie sheet and into the oven at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.
