Loretta Lynn’s Apple Turnovers

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/4 cups shortening
5 to 6 tablespoons water
1 (20 to 22 ounce) can prepared apple pie filling
Confectioners’ sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Combine flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Cut in shortening. Sprinkle dough with water a tablespoon at a time, until just enough has been added so dough can be patted into a ball. On a floured surface, roll half of dough into a 10 x 15-inch rectangle. Cut into 5-inch squares. Repeat with other half of dough. Place about 2 tablespoons of fruit filling in each square. Fold over one half of pastry to form a triangle. Seal edges firmly with a fork. Prick top with fork. Bake on ungreased baking sheets for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly; sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.
