Apple Squash Pockets

Just had this idea come to me last week. The dough has multiple purposes and I've made it before - works for pizza, too! Apple squash filling is savory with a little bit of sweetness and some spice from the chili powder. I hope you like it! By the way, my filling spilled out but I revamped the ingredients so that won't happen again. You'll do it better than me :)

Ingredients

POCKET DOUGH

2 c
whole wheat flour
1 tsp
baking powder
1 pinch
salt and pepper
3/4 c
water

APPLE SQUASH MIXTURE

2 c
yellow squash, shredded
1/2 c
applesauce, unsweetened
2 tsp
chili powder
2 tsp
minced garlic

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the filling by mixing all ingredients together in a large bowl. Set aside.
2
In a standing mixer, combine the flour, baking powder, salt/pepper. With the dough hook attachment, gradually work in the water until crumbly and coming off the sides of the bowl.
3
Knead the dough on a floured surface and separate into 4 equal pieces.
4
With a rolling pin, shape each ball of dough into a thin disk (about 6-8 inch diameter). Place ΒΌ of the squash mixture in the center of each.
5
Fold the dough over the mixture and crimp with a fork, making sure the filling stays inside. Pierce the top of each a few times to allow the steam to escape.
6
Place the pockets on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
