Here's my top make-ahead appetizer. My three kids are old enough to cook these themselves, right from the freezer. They're a lot more nutritious than the ones you get at a restaurant. —Marisa Raponi, Vaughan, Ontario
"My mother-in-law originally made this recipe with chicken," says Marjorie Miller of Haven, Kansas. "When I substituted pork and made several other revisions, my family reveled in the results! It's simple to prepare yet delicious."
Apples, potatoes, ground pork and seasonings tucked inside flaky golden pastry never fail to win praise from my family at home and friends at church functions. The assembly requires a bit of effort, but these impressive little turnovers are worth it.
