This recipe is my absolute favorite apple recipe! So when I received a fun package from Crunchpak I knew exactly what I was going to make first. When I make this recipe I am used to peeling and dicing every apple. Instead Crunchpak did more then half of the work for me and boy was it great! I have always been a huge fan of Crunchpak for my kids for their perfect go-to snack ideas but since I have gotten the package from them I cannot stop baking with their apples. I had planned on only sharing this apple recipe on the blog with them but instead have decided to share my top 4 apple recipes over the next week. So hope you apple lovers are ready for a great variety of apple recipes! And below is a picture of the pure excitement that my kids gave me when they opened up the box and the apple fun has not stopped!
3 cups flour
1 cup Crisco
Cut together until the dough is the size of peas. Then add:
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
7 Tablespoons ice water
Mix together until it becomes play dough texture. Form into a ball and let sit for 20 minutes. While it sits make the apple filling
Apple Pie Filling
1 (14 oz) Crunchpak tart apple package, diced
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon flour
Dash of nutmeg
Dash of salt1 Tablespoon Crisco, diced into small cubes
1 teaspoon rum extract, optional
Mix together all ingredients except the crisco. Once it is all combined lightly add in cubed Crisco.
Once the dough has sat for 20 minutes divide into 6 sections (thirds first and then halves) and then roll out. Each ball should make 3 circles. Use top of Crisco lid to make the circle or something around the same size. Fill it half way with apple pie filling. Fold over and use fork to press down and seal the sides. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and frost immediately.Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
Diamond chopped pecans
Combine powdered sugar and milk. Icing should be thick. It will melt when you place on hot apple turnovers. Then sprinkle chopped pecans on after you ice them.
