    Serves 9-10 turnovers

    2 Granny Smith apples, chopped

    2 tablespoons flour

    2 tablespoons brown sugar

    1½ tablespoons cinnamon

    1 pack of 5 large cinnamon rolls

    1 egg

    Vegetable oil

    Cinnamon sugar for coating


    Heat 2 inches of vegetable oil in a pot to 350˚F/120˚C.

    Pat chopped Granny Smith apples dry with paper towel.

    Mix in brown sugar, cinnamon, and 1 tbsp of flour.

    Open your cinnamon rolls and reserve icing.

    Cut the cinnamon rolls in half and roll out each half into a 2 in x 2 in square. Place a dollop of icing and apple mixture onto the square.

    Beat egg in a bowl and brush the sides of the square.

    Fold the square into a turnover shape and seal closed with your finger, making sure to get the air out from inside.

    Primp the edges with a fork.

    Place turnovers into oil and fry for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

    Toss in cinnamon sugar.

    Serve and enjoy!
