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. -Ruby Carves, Litchfield, Maine

Ingredients

  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup cold butter or margarine
  • 12 to 18 tablespoons cold water
  • FILLING:
  • 2 pounds ground pork
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups cooked cubed peeled potatoes
  • 2 cups diced peeled tart apples
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons water

Directions

In a bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt; cut in the shortening and butter until crumbly. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing lightly with a fork until dough forms a ball. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
In a Dutch oven over medium heat, brown pork until no longer pink; drain. Add butter and onion; saute until onion is tender. Add potatoes, apples, flour, sugar, sage, pepper and salt; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Cool.
Meanwhile, on a heavily floured surface, roll pastry to 1/8-in. thickness; cut into 3-1/2-in. circles. Place 1-2 tablespoons filling on each circle. Moisten edges with water; fold dough in half. Seal edges with fingers or a fork. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Beat egg yolks and water; brush over turnovers. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: about 4 dozen.
