Apple Cinnamon Turnovers

I uses refrigerated biscuits to assemble these turnovers in a jiffy. They also have a easy filling made with chopped apples and applesauce which tastes delicious. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, these golden treats get rave reviews!—Robin Stevens, Cadiz, Kentucky

    I liked the filling but not the biscuit outside. Mine definitely didn't turn out like the picture. Maybe it would be better not to roll the dough out as big as 6". The dough wouldn't be so thin and hard to work with. I also wonder if poking each with a fork just before baking would let steam out and not let the pies be soft/soggy. I will try using this filling with puff pastry next time.

    I have to admit that I winged it a little -- I substituted an equal amount of ricotta cheese (that I was desperately trying to use up before the sell by date) instead of the applesauce. They didn't taste so great right out of the oven but after about an hour the apples released their sugar and they were much better.....the recipe is definitely worth a try if you follow the recipe!

    For such easy preparation, these are good. Be sure to eat them warm from the oven since the biscuits get that weird taste and texture when they cool.

    I made these before and they turned out perfectly! In fact I even went as far as to putting strawberry jelly in a few and they were pretty good too!

    I ended up having to bake these for an additional 25 minutes covered with foil just so the bottoms would cook and not be doughy.
