I'm almost finished writing my own cookbook. When I was working on the apple section, I knew I had to submit this recipe for the contest. With the flaky turnovers and rich sauce, it outshines every other apple recipe I make! -Leora Muellerleile, Turtle Lake, Wisconsin
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 cups milk or half-and-half cream

- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons butter, diced
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch

- Combine sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Stir in milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir 1 cup into yolks. Return all to pan. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Cool slightly. Cover surface of custard with waxed paper; chill.
