Caramelized apple and cranberry turnovers

Measure Ingredient
1 Apple; diced
20 Cranberries; fresh or thawed
4 tablespoons Sugar
8 tablespoons Orange juice
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Nutmeg
2 teaspoons Cornstarch mixed with
1½ teaspoon Water
4 Phyllo sheets; thawed (12"x17")
Nonstick cooking spray

ADVANCE PREP: Saute the first 4 ingredients in a medium saute pan over medium heat until the fruit softens slightly. Stir in the spices and cornstarch/water mix, cool and reserve.

Cut phyllo dough into 16 5-inch squares (you'll have some left over). Make 4 stacks of 4 squares each, coating each layer with nonstick cooking spray before placing another on top. Spoon 11/2 heaping tablespoons of the apple mixture in the center of each stack; fold each in half from corner to corner to form a triangle. Refrigerate the turnovers for 30 minutes.

BAKE: Preheat oven to 375F. Place turnovers on a cookie sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray, then spray tops of turnovers. Bake for 15 minutes.

Let cool. Store in an airtight container.

SAUCE: Combine all ingredients for Vanilla Yogurt Sauce in an airtight container. Refrigerate until needed.

TO SERVE: Place turnovers on serving plates and drizzle with Vanilla Yogurt Sauce. Optional: warm the turnovers in a toaster oven then drizzle with sauce and serve.
