This dough is so good you'll be tempted to just bake it up without any filling. Regardless of what you decide to put inside, the outside is sweet and delicious and bakes up beautifully. This dough will be enough for twelve turnovers.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 1/3 cups white sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, beat the butter, then add the sugar a little at a time. Add the vanilla. Beat the mixture until it is nice and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Stir in the flour mixture alternately with the milk.
Before you use this dough, be sure you chill it well at least 2 hours or even overnight.
