Easy Apple Turnovers
2 or 3 apples, peeled and chopped, we used Golden Delicious which is a great cooking apple
2 Tbs melted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Pie Crust - we used store bought, hence the "easy" in the title.
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1/8 tsp cinnamon
2 or 3 tsp apple juice
Mix the filling ingredients and set aside. Cut each crust in half and then in quarters (this is a great time to introduce fractions to a 4 year old, really, she dug it). Fill each triangle with about 1/4 cup filling, fold over, seal edges with a fork (this was Mimi's favorite part and took her time to make sure it was done right). Prick tops with a fork. Bake at 375 for 20 to 30 minutes, until they are golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes then top with glaze and a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar. Enjoy!
They are delicious and Mimi will feature them at her future restaurant, which she told me will be called The Four Musketeers. It's funny because my husband and I were just talking about what if one of our darlings didn't want to go to college but wanted to go to chef school or something like that (totally OK with us, but hard to swallow when you never questioned the "life after high school route", which we always assumed would be college). Then, out of the blue, Mimi told me she might be a cook when she grew up. Maybe she heard us talking :) Go over to A Little Fun With Me and Lu to check out more Kids in the Kitchen posts!
