Squash-Apple Turnovers

    I 100% agree with the other reviewer...the dough that is suggested to use is horrible! How you take a long skinny piece of dough and form it into a 5 inch circle I do not understand. I did enjoy the filling...I would put more of the honeycrisp apple in it because of the sweetness, but I will make my own dough instead of what was suggested.

    This was a little disappointing, for as long as it took to prepare. Peeling and dicing raw, hard squash is pretty labor-intensive. I used Rhodes frozen dinner rolls, let them thaw/rise 2 hours, then rolled out to circles. The filling was a little bland, I used wishbone spray honey mustard dressing and probably should have used a bit more. With a little practice, they might look nice enough for company, but just not that satisfying...

    I had no problem rolling the store bought dough and it stretched easily over the filling. However, I wasn't too keen on the goat cheese. I would love to see more savory turnovers with different flavor combinations excluding the goat cheese. Everyone in my house was a little puzzled by its use here, even the goat cheese lover. Still, pretty good recipe...

    nice flavors. but rolling store bought dinner roll dough is an absolute impossibility. i problem solved by creating a "sandwich." perforated triangle dough + filling + perforated triangle dough + seal + bake + eat. it was good. made a nice appetizer. will make again.

    For all you people who got turned off by the dough, you just got the incorrect type. I was standing in the aisle at the grocery store, and I took a chance on some pre-made pie crust, and they came out fantastic. I love this recipe!! I did make one small change in that I chose an herbed goat cheese, but I actually think it added to the overall dish.

    These taste fantastic! I made the recipe as written, with no changes. I served it with roast chicken. To address other reviewers' problems with the dough: Don't separate the crescent dough into triangles. While it is still in the "log" shape, cut the dough into eight equal portions. Reshape each portion into a ball, and then roll flat with a rolling pin. Works great!

    Excellent flavor blend! Important to dice all of the veggies so they cook faster. I made my own roll dough, with good results. Great dish.
