    Pear Mini-Turnovers

    Instructionshad you cutting circles out of the pastry sheets. What a waste of product! I cut them into squares, which is what turnover are. Half moons are Empanadas, at least to me. The pear mixture was too wet, even after I drained it in a colander. I used exactly the amount of filling the recipe suggested, but it still oozed out in all directions. Perhaps that was the purpose for the round shape and not squares.Theytook longer to cook,but I'll give that to my oven and our altitude. These were way too much trouble for the end results.
