How To Make fruit turnovers

  • 1
    Stir the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. I used my food processor for the whole process.
  • 2
    Add the half and half and melted butter, till forms a ball. Or if not using a processor, cut in the butter with a fork and add the half and half.
  • 3
    I cut the dough in half. Then roll out to about 1/4 inch thickness.
  • 4
    I use a med sized glass to cut the dough into circles. Then spread out with fingers a bit more. Add about a teaspoon of filling, fold over and crimp edges with a fork.

    Place on a baking sheet., I lined mine with parchment paper. Brush each pie with egg yolk. Sprinkle with some sugar if you like. I sometimes drizzle a glaze on them also, after cooling a few minutes Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown.
