  1. Very easy! I must say that I used my mandolin slicer on the thin blade and swiped 2 small Gala apples for the pot. After they simmered down in there, I really didn't think I had enough filling! I nearly added a can of apple filling that I had in the pantry out of sheer panic, but after spreading the mixture on only half of the dough circle-it was just the right amount! After baking, I cut the large half-moon shaped turnover into 4 equal wedges (like a pizza) and put them in the refrigerator to wait for our lunch boxes. You can eat them cold or nuke them for 30 seconds...they really do taste juste like a hot apple pie! Thanks for this little wonder!
  2. Need to use up some apples and made for an afternoon treat. I had download this recipe from Pillsbury website and saw that it was all ready posted. I used 2 cups apple and added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. I would add more cinnamon next time. I think this needs some sort of topping such as cool whip, ice cream or a light icing glaze. Tasted like an apple turnover. Thanks DuChick
  3. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game (Feb '08 - Jan '09). This is an awesome idea. My DH loves pie, but I always shy away from making pies because I usually ending up eating more than I should. With this recipe, we only have just what we need. The filling was great and I was able to use my GF pie crust recipe. Thanks for posting thid DuChick! I'll most certainly make this again.


I am... ~a mother of 2 kids (19 and 22) who are extremely picky eaters. The mere mention of "healthy" sends them running in the opposite direction. They prefer the creamy, cheesy, fried stuff that they weren't brought up on! ~a wife of a wonderful man who fights an expanding waistline and will lovingly eat most anything I set before him. Everything is 5 stars to him. :) He's the easiest customer a cook could ask for! ~a teacher who tends to reach for comfort foods to relieve stress. I am a middle school reading specialist. The miracles I see on a daily basis keeps me going! But it's also stressful, so keep me away from the cookie jar! I really have to fight off the sugary, fat-laden stuff that has no worth beyond the momentary comfort in my mouth. ~and I'm also a daughter who was brought up on home cooked meals back when calories meant nothing and taste was everything! That is an idea built into my system that's hard to shake! My mother raised 8 kids (I'm #7) on her home-cooking and I always teased her that she didn't raise a single skinny kid! I luckily inherited her great love of cooking and baking. (I miss you Mom!) ~finally, I'm "mom" to the best Bichon in the world. He is Quincy, our kid in a dogsuit. He's 13 years old, but still a puppy to us. <img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/264017/Quincy%20run%20small.jpg> Below are photos I've taken of some of my favorite recipes found on Recipezaar: <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="http://w265.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w265.photobucket.com/albums/ii223/duchick/5b275464.pbw" height="300" width="400"><a href="http://photobucket.com/slideshows" target="_blank"><img src="http://pic.photobucket.com/slideshows/btn.gif" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a><a href="http://s265.photobucket.com/albums/ii223/duchick/?action=view¤t=5b275464.pbw" target="_blank"><img src="http://pic.photobucket.com/slideshows/btn_viewallimages.gif" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a> <style>body{background:url("http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii223/duchick/lakehouse_cupcake.jpg?v=0");background-repeat:repeat;}</style>
