Expert Tips

  • Did you know? Pillsbury has a gluten free pie and pastry dough.
  • Tart apples, such as Granny Smith or McIntosh, make flavorful pies. Braeburn or Gala apples provide good texture and a slightly sweeter flavor.

  • A turnover is a type of pastry recipe made by filling a piece of dough, folding the dough over, sealing it and baking it. For more ways to make pie without a pie pan, check out all of our hand pie recipes.
  • Cutting small slits in the top of the crust before baking allows the steam produced by the filling to escape during baking and avoids “pie gap,” which is when the filling shrinks but the crust stays lifted and leaves a wide gap between the two layers.
  • Serve turnovers with vanilla ice cream for an even more decadent treat!
