The Apples Have it!!!


Apple Turnovers  


2 medium apples, peeled, cored and diced

1 Tbsp. all purpose flour

2 Tbsp. unsalted butter

1/4 cup golden raisins

2 Tbsp. sugar

1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1/8 tsp. gr. ginger

1 egg, separated

1 pkg. (17.3 oz.) frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed

1 cup powdered sugar

1/4 tsp. vanilla

2 Tbsp. milk


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Toss diced apples with flour.  Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Add apples, golden raisins, sugar, lemon juice and ginger.  Cook, stirring, 4 to 5 minutes or until apples are tender.  Remove from heat and let cool.  Stir in egg yolk.

Unfold pastry sheets pm a lightly floured surface.  Roll out slightly to measure about 11 inches square.  With a pizza cutter pr sharp knife, cut pastry in to 4 equal squares. 

Spoon 1/4 cup of apple mixture into center of 1 square.  Brush edges with egg white.  Fold in half diagonally to form a triangle.  Pinch edges to seal, and transfer to an ungreased baking sheet.  Repeat with remaining squares.

Bake in the preheated oven for 14 to 15 minutes, until puffed and nicely browned on top.  Remove turnovers from pan to wire rack to cool  10 minutes.  Mix powdered sugar, vanilla and milk in small bowl.  Drizzle turnovers with icing.
