Canned Salmon or Tuna Turnovers

Variation: Make canned salmon mixture as directed, omitting cream cheese. Cut 4 square slices of muenster or Monterey jack cheese in half diagonally to make 8 triangles (slightly smaller than dough). Place a cheese triangle on 8 pieces of dough. Top with salmon mixture. Finish as directed.
