Golden Apple Bundles


I had some pie crust on hand and a couple of apples too, so I had to try this recipe.  We like hand pies, and I liked the idea for walnuts and raisins in the mixture. I keep walnuts in the freezer all the time and raisins on hand too.  I don’t like having to run out to buy those basics at the last minute when I can buy them in bulk at a good price.  You will want to chop your apples fairly fine to get more in your turnover.   The extras kept in the freezer for coffee time another day.   Try Myrna's Pie Crust for your crusts.
