Whole Wheat Turnovers with Variation: BLUEBERRY Turnovers<br><br>
Category: Breads<br><br><br><br>
Suitable for a: vegan diet<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Ingredients:<br><br>
------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour<br><br>
1/4 cup safflower oil<br><br>
1/2 cup water<br><br>
1/3 cup soy milk<br><br>
3 T. maple syrup<br><br>
1 1/2 t. salt<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Instructions:<br><br>
------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
In a large bowl, place the flour and drizzle in the oil. Using your fingers, work the two together until it forms a crumbly mixture. In a small bowl, place the remaining ingredients, and whisk well to combine.<br><br><br><br>
Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture, mix well, and with your hands form it into a ball of dough. Transfer the dough to a floured surface. Divide the dough in half. Roll out one half of the dough thinly, cut eighteen 5-inch circles, and set them aside.<br><br><br><br>
Gather up the scraps, add the scraps to the remaining half of dough, roll out the dough thinly, and cut eighteen 6-inch circles. Fill the 6-inch circles of dough with up to 1/3 cups of desired filling.<br><br><br><br>
Wet the edges of the circles of dough with water, place the 5-inch circles of dough on top of the filling, press down around the edges of the dough to seal, and then crimp the edges with a fork.<br><br><br><br>
Use a spatula to carefully transfer the filled turnovers to 2 non-stick cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve the turnovers hot or cold.<br><br><br><br>
Allow them to cool completely on racks before wrapping them individually in aluminum foil to preserve freshness. They can also be frozen in airtight containers after baking for later use.<br><br><br><br>
Yield: Dough for Eighteen 6-inch turnovers<br><br><br><br><br><br>

The following variation is the main reason I use the above recipe so I hd to incude it.<br><br>
-----------------------<br><br><br><br>
VARIATION:<br><br>
BLUEBERRY TURNOVERS<br><br><br><br>
1 2/3 cups blueberries<br><br>
1/3 cup unbleached cane sugar<br><br>
4 t. whole wheat flour<br><br>
4 t. lemon juice<br><br>
1/8 t. ground ginger<br><br>
1/2 recipe of Whole Wheat Turnover Pastry Dough above (enough for 9 turnovers)<br><br><br><br><br><br>
In a small bowl, place the blueberries, sugar, flour, lemon juice, and ginger, and toss gently to combine. Prepare the dough for the turnovers. Then cut the 5-inch and 6-inch circles of dough as described in the turnover pastry dough recipe.<br><br><br><br>
On each of the prepared 6-inch circles of dough, place 3 T. of the blueberry filling. Wet the edges of the circles of dough with water, place the 5-inch circles of dough on top of the filling, press down around the edges of the dough to seal, and crimp the edges with a fork.<br><br><br><br>
Use a spatula to carefully transfer the turnovers to a non-stick cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve the turnovers hot or cold. Allow them to cool completely on a rack before wrapping them individually in aluminum foil to preserve freshness. They can also be frozen in an airtight container after baking for later use.<br><br><br><br>
*Variation - other fruits and flavorings can be substituted for the blueberries such as, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, plums, apples, cherries, or vanilla, almond, maple, or mint as flavorings etc.<br><br><br><br>

Update: YUM. I made them with diced apples, maple syrup, cinnamon, extra flour (to make up for the maple syrup), pecans, raisins, and ground flax. It made six lovely-sized turnovers that have been whole-heartedly approved by the family. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">
