Apple Turnover for one

With all my attempts at the French Silk Pie, I kept finding myself with extra crust I didn’t want to waste.  So one day I made a mini apple pie in a custard cup.  Another day, I made these delicious gluten free Apple Turnovers.  So when you are making pie, don’t throw away your extra dough, make a little treat instead.

First, roll your leftover dough into an oval, cut one small green apple into slices or chunks and place on half of the dough, leaving space at the edge.  Sprinkle with a teaspoon of sugar, a little cinnamon and a small pat of butter.  Fold the empty side of the dough over the apple slices.  Next, pinch together the edges.  Poke a few small holes on top with a fork.  Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon and sugar.  Place on a cookie sheet lined with tinfoil for easy clean up.  Then, bake at 375 degrees (at the same time as your pie crust) for about 25-30 minutes.  And voila…easy peasy gluten free Apple Turnover for now or to save for another day.
