- 1/3 cup light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 3 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- dash salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 6 tablespoons cold butter
- 2 tablespoons cold shortening
- 3 to 4 tablespoons ice water
- 1 tablespoon milk
- sugar, for sprinkling
In a food processor, mix the flour, salt, and 1 teaspoon sugar.
Add the 6 tablespoons of cold butter and 2 tablespoons cold shortening and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. You should still have some pieces of butter or shortening about the size of a small pea. Add 3 tablespoons ice cold water and mix until it begins to stick together. Add a little more, in very small amounts, if needed. Remove, shape into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Remove the dough and roll out to a sheet about 12 to 14 inches square. Cut into 4 5-inch squares and use scraps to make another square of circle for a 5th turnover.
Put about 3 tablespoons of the chilled apple mixture on each square. Moisten the edges with a little water, fold over, and seal lightly with tines of a fork. Prick in a few places with a sharp knife or fork to allow steam to escape.
Heat oven to 375°.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush with a little milk and sprinkle with sugar the last 5 to 10 minutes.
