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!

MODIFICATIONS:

If you really want to make these, but you believe that there are too many illegals for you, here are some changes you can make:

1. Make your own puff pastry using whole wheat flour. Find a simple recipe online, such as the one that I have linked here, and try to sub in WW flour instead of reuglar flour: http://www.taunton.com/finecooking/article...uff-pastry.aspx
I don't know if it will work the same with WW flour (I don't really know the difference between flours when you cook), but I'd be willing to try (when I decide to make these again).

2. Use arrowroot powder instead of cornstarch.

3. 1/4 c apple butter seemed like a lot when I was making the turnovers (even though it's spread out over all 12 turnovers). Here are your options:
a) Use less apple butter
(IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/cool.gif) Make your own with Stevia. I don't know the recipe off hand, but in this book: http://www.amazon.com/Stevia-Sweet-Recipes...r/dp/1890612138, you can find a recipe for it.
c) Find a recipe for it online, such as this one: http://www.justslowcooking.com/slo-0011993.html. That recipe is a no-sugar added recipe for apple butter.
d) Leave it out, but it might not taste as apple-y. Or, find something else through experimentation that tastes good.
