Turnovers, Pleating

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Give these turnovers a festive look by pleating the edges and baking them upright. The folding technique is the same as for a Chinese potsticker, which these resemble.

Moistening Edges
Spoon the filling onto the center of each 4-inch round of dough. Brush bare edge of the dough with water.

Folding Turnovers
Be sure that there is a border of dough all around the filling. Pick up the turnover with your hands and fold it in half, but donít press it together.

Pleating Turnovers
On the top half of the turnover, gather the edge of the dough closest to you into small pleats, working from right to left. Pinch gently to seal.
