Honey Apple Turnovers

Honey Apple Turnovers

YIELD: Makes 4 servings


1 T - dried currants

3 T - finely chopped walnuts

1/2 tsp. - ground cinnamon, plus additional for dusting

6 T - honey, divided

2 large - baking apples

2 - prepared pie dough for single-crust, purchase or homemade


In a small bowl, combine currants, walnuts and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Stir in 3 T honey.

Peel apples and cut each in half lengthwise. Remove seeds and stem. Scoop out core from each half with a melon baller, making a wide hole for filling.

Divide honey mixture evenly between apple centers.

Divide pie dough into 4 balls. Roll each ball into a 6-inch circle about 1/4-inch thick. Lay 1 piece of dough over each apple half with filling-side up. Tuck and wrap dough under each apple half. Trim dough to fit. Pinch the edges of dough underneath apples to seal entirely.

Combine 1 T honey with 1 tsp. hot water. Stir until honey dissolves. Brush mixture over tops of turnovers; dust with additional cinnamon.

Transfer turnovers to an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375°F for about 35 minutes, until turnovers are golden.

Remove from oven and drizzle with remaining 2 T honey. Serve warm or at room temperature.
