1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons shortening
1 tablespoon ice water
1 medium tart apple, peeled and sliced
1 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon ice
In a small bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.
On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 7-in. circle. Place apple slices on half of the circle; sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Fold dough over filling, sealing edges with fingers or pressing with a fork. Brush with milk. Prick top with a fork. Place on a greased baking sheet.
Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Combine glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over turnover.
