These turnovers are pretty much amazing. I got the recipe from The All-Natural Sugar-Free Dessert Cookbook by Linda Romanelli Leahy. The only "bad" thing that I noticed is the puff pastry...you can't really get whole-wheat puff pastry (as far as I know). These are SO good, though... (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

2 medium apples (~2 cups) pared and shredded
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 sheet thawed puff pastry
1/4 cup apple butter
1 large egg white, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350; spray baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray if it is not nonstick. Set aside.

In medium bowl, combine apples, cornstarch, lemon juice, and cinnamon; set aside.

On lightly floured surface, roll pastry into 12 x 16 in. rectangle. Using a ruler as a guide, cut 12 4-in. squares. Brush each square liberally with apple butter. Spoon a heaping tbsp of apple mixture in the center of each squre; fold in half diagonally. Seal by pressing fork tines around edges. Brush each turnover with egg white; place on prepared sheet.

Bake about 25 mintues or until brown and crispy; turn onto rack to cool.

Enjoy!

Yes, I mentioned in the original post that the puff pastry is from regular flour....but as a once-in-awhile treat, personally, I am willing to splurge!

I haven't looked into it much, but can't you sub in arrowroot powder for cornstarch? So if someone wanted to rid of cornstarch, you could probably do that.
