Mini Apple Turnovers

from Taste of Homes  

1 8 oz cream cheese softened
3/4 cup butter softened
1 egg, separated
3 Tbs cold water divided
2 cups pastry flour sifted*
7 cups thinly sliced/cored apples
3/4 cup raw sugar
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Step One:
In your Bosch bowl, beat cream cheese and butter till smooth.  If you use the Bosch bowl scraper, it will enhancer the mixing.  Beat egg yolk and 2 Tbs water into cream cheese mixture.  Gradually add flour.  Shape pastry into a ball and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Cover dough and put in the fridge for one hour.
Step Two:
In large skillet, combine apples, sugar and cinnamon.  Cover and cook over low heat till tender for about 8-10 minutes.  This is a wonderful time to use your Bosch Slicer/Shredder attachment.  You will have the slicing task done in the blink of an eye!

Step Three:
Turn the pastry dough onto a lightly floured surface.  Roll 1/8th inch thick; cut into 4" circle; top each circle with apple mixture.  Fold pastry over filling and seal well.  Brush with water to help seal.

Step Four:
In small bowl, whisk egg white and remaining water; brush over pastry.  Sprinkle with sugar. 

Step Five:
Bake 375 degrees for 18-22 minutes. 


Great when served with vanilla ice cream!!  Yum!!
