See how easy it is to make scrumptious little pies!


Four easy steps to fresh turnover pies!

You’re 15 minutes away from scrumptious little Hostess®-type pies.  You can make a batch in 15 minutes plus baking time—berry pies, chocolate pies, lemon pies, apple pies, and even raspberry cream pies.

You’ll need three things and then these little pies are a snap:

(You can also use your dough press to make pocket sandwiches, pasties, calzones, empanadas, and more.)

Step 1—Roll and cut the dough:  Use your dough press to cut the dough into six-inch circles.

Step 2—Add the filling:  For the filling, use either a fruit filling—a commercially canned one works fine—or pudding for a cream filling.  We used Jell-O® brand pudding mixes in both instant and cooked varieties.   Both worked. The pudding cooked pudding is less likely to leak during baking if you cool it for an hour before using it.

You can make lemon turnovers, banana cream turnovers, and chocolate turnovers as well as fruit-filled turnovers.

Place a dough circle on the dough press.  The dough will follow the bowl-shaped contour of the press.  Place 1/4 cup filling in the formed bowl. Using the dough press, fold the dough over to make a turnover and press firmly to seal.

Step 3—Bake the pies:  Place the turnovers on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake in your preheated oven at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly golden.
Step 4—Glaze the pies:  Make a glaze from powdered sugar and water.  One cup powdered sugar is about right for this size recipe.  Add enough water, about 1 1/2 tablespoons, to reach drizzling consistency and brush the glaze on the tops of the turnovers while still warm.
