1 package active dry yeast
1 cup lukewarm milk (98 to 110 degrees F)
3 tablespoons honey
3 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
1 pinch salt
3 tablespoons melted butter or safflower oil
3/4 cup cranberries
2 cups cored and peeled green apples -- sliced
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup dried currants
1 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons arrowroot powder
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
safflower oil -- to coat baking sheet
1. In a large bowl combine yeast, milk, and honey. Let mixture stand for 5
minutes. Stir in 1-1/2 cups of the flour and let batter rise for 15 minutes. Add
remaining flour, salt, and butter to form a dough. Knead dough for 5 minutes on
a floured breadboard, then place in a clean bowl and cover with a dish towel.
Let dough rise for 45 minutes.
2. In a covered saucepan over medium-high heat, simmer cranberries, apples, the
water, and currants until berries pop. In a small bowl mix 2/3 cup of the maple
syrup, arrowroot, lemon juice, cinnamon, and lemon rind. Uncover saucepan and
add maple syrup mixture to cooking cranberries. Stir well. Heat, stirring
constantly, until thick. Remove from heat and let cool 15 minutes.
3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly oil a large baking sheet. Separate
dough into 8 balls. Roll into 5-inch circles on a floured breadboard. Place
equal amounts of cranberry filling into the center of each circle. Lightly
dampen edges of circle with water and fold edges in to form a turnover, pressing
4. In a small saucepan over high heat, bring the remaining maple syrup to a
boil. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and then brush tops of turnovers
with syrup. Place turnovers on prepared baking sheet and bake until browned
(about 20 minutes). Let cool slightly before serving.
