  1. Cook apples and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat, covered, stirring occasionally and breaking up apples with the back of a spoon, 10 to 12 minutes or until apples form a coarse puree. Add SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener and flour; cook 2 to 3 additional minutes, stirring constantly until SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener dissolves and mixture is thickened. Stir in cinnamon. Spoon apple mixture into a bowl to cool slightly.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.
  3. Unroll piecrusts; cut each one into four wedges. Roll each wedge into a 6-inch circle. Place 3 level tablespoons apple mixture on each circle; moisten edges of dough with water and fold dough over to form a half-moon shape. Crimp to seal, and cut vents to release steam. Place on prepared pan; brush tops with egg white.
  4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until turnovers are browned. Cool turnovers on a wire rack 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.

This was really good. I found using my little trio dumpling set worked great in making cute little turnover pies. They were tasty and easy to make. Will make these again. And what's really nice is that I can easily change out the flour and pie crust for a gluten free alternative for an inlaw that's going to be visiting! Yeah me.

I will try this recipe again BUT I think next time I won't cook the apples in advance, or will cook them less. They were a bit too mushy for my taste. I used Granny Smith. Other than the texture, the taste was great - I appreciate the fact that this is a recipe that uses Splenda instead of sugar. Really nice.

Instead of "turnovers," I guess I made "baked apple pies," but shaping them differently was the only change. The Splenda provided just enough sweetness.

These were so good. The crust was wonderful on them and I just used an affordable store brand crust. I used the apples, I had already, which I believe were gala apples. It took about eighteen minutes for my apples to cook down. I used a Norpro mini Apple mold to cut the shapes and help fill and seal them. So, I went with round pies. I got four and then pressed out the dough scraps and I got two more. I still used the 3 Tblsp. of filling in each. They were filled plenty. I was left with a good 1/2 cup, or a little more, of filling. It was no problem, because it is fine on its own like a thick apple sauce. I baked the pies on a parchment lined sheet, sprayed with Pam. They took twenty minutes to bake. I just wish pie crust, was a little more healthy because I want to keep eating more. ty

These were near perfect. I did bump up the cinnamon to a tsp. These would be even better with homemade crust...

So very delicious! I thought I wouldn't like the consistency of the filling - but in the final product it was Just Right!

These are great! Baked apples and Splenda seem to go =very= well together... mmmmm... plus the slightly salty crust... yummers. Highly recommended!
