RG

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup lard or butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Fillings of applesauce, pineapple,peaches, mincemeat or pumpkin

Instructions

  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Blend in butter to crumbs. Add water and mix until pastry dough comes to a ball, leaving the side of the bowl. Roll out 1/8 inch thick. Cut 4-inch circles. (A can with both ends removed works well.)
  2. All fillings should be sweetened and spiced with cinnamon. Place a teaspoon of filling on half of each round. Moisten edges and fold dough in half over filling. Seal with a work or fingers at outer edge.
  3. Bake on cookie sheets for 20 minutes at 375 degrees F or deep fry in hot vegetable oil.
  4. Cool on racks or paper.

Makes 15 to 20 turnovers.

Coconut and Brown Sugar Filling

Mash together flaked coconut with brown sugar. Moisten with lime juice and a little honey. Flavor to taste with ground ginger.
