Preparation

In a bowl, mix ingredients for selected filling, if necessary. Set aside.

With a rolling pin, roll out dough between two pieces of waxed paper dusted with flour into a rectangle measuring about 18 in. x 12 in. (45 cm x 30 cm). Cut dough into 24 3-in. (7.5-cm) squares.

Divide filling equally among squares, placing it in the centre of each.

In a small bowl, beat egg and water. Brush edges of two sides of each square with egg wash.

Fold dough over filling, making little triangular turnovers. Press edges of each turnover together to seal.

Place turnovers on ungreased baking sheets. Brush turnovers evenly with remaining egg wash. Cover and refrigerate about 30 minutes or until dough is firm.

Turnovers can be prepared up to this point and frozen in airtight containers for up to 3 weeks. Do not thaw before baking.

Bake in centre of a 425°F / 220°C oven for 15 minutes or until turnovers are puffed up and gold.
