Flaky Apple Turnovers...Dorie Style

Just in time for Apple Picking Season.....
today's recipe for TWD comes from
Boy, she sure picked this at the right time. Apples are ready to pick here in New England. And this recipe calls for one of my favorite kind....Granny Smith.
Still waiting for my number one choice of Honey Crisp,
but that will come in just a couple weeks.
This recipe was super easy and delish!
Perfect with a glass of milk or to send off in those lunches with the kids.
No need to purchase Puff Pastry, you can make you own low cal version.
I chose to do them in squares that were folded into triangles,
that way there was no scrap to deal with.
For the dough:
1 cup NO fat sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 sticks margarine cut into small pieces
**Mix the surgar and sour cream together, set aside
**Cut in the Margarine with the flour and salt mixture
**When into pea sized crumbs, add the SC/sugar and mix
****I mixed with my hand , so I wouldn't over mix
**Divide dough in half and shape into a rectangle, and wrap in saran wrap. Store in fridge overnight.
**Take out dough and roll out to a 9 x 13 rectangle, between wax paper works easiest.
Fold this rectangle into 1/3's and wrap again and put in fridge for 2 hours.

For the filling:
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into small chunks
** Mix all of this together and set aside.
**Retrieve dough from fridge, cut each piece in half. Roll each half an 1/4 inch thick.
**Cut into 6 squares, equally.
**Place a little filling on one side of square, moisten the edge of square with water. Then fold over to form a triangle. Press down the edges.
**Place on sheet pan, 2 x 6. Brush with milk and sprinkle with crystal sugar.
**Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
We gave this 5 glasses of milk,
for utter goodness!
