Apple 🍎 Turnovers

July 5th is National Apple 🍎 Turnover Day

A turnover is a type of pastry or bread made by placing a filling on a piece of dough, folding the dough over, sealing, and baking it. Turnovers can be sweet or savoury and are often made as a sort of portable meal or dessert, similar to a sandwich. They are often eaten for breakfast.

It is common for sweet turnovers to have a fruit filling and be made with a puff pastry or shortcrust pastry dough and covered with icing; savory turnovers generally contain meat and/or vegetables and can be made with any sort of dough, though a kneaded yeast dough seems to be the most common in Western cuisines. They are usually baked, but may be fried.

Savoury turnovers are often sold as convenience foods in supermarkets. Savoury turnovers with meat or poultry and identified as a turnover in the United States (for example, "Beef Turnover" or "Cheesy Chicken Turnover") have to meet a standard of identity or composition and should contain a certain amount of meat or poultry.
