Blueberry Turnovers

1 2/3 cups blueberries
1/3 cup unbleached cane sugar
4 t. whole wheat flour
4 t. lemon juice
1/8 t. ground ginger
1/2 recipe of Whole Wheat Turnover Pastry Dough (enough for 9 turnovers)

In a small bowl, place the blueberries, sugar, flour, lemon juice, and ginger, and toss gently to combine. Prepare the dough for the turnovers. Then cut the 5-inch and 6-inch circles of dough as described in the turnover pastry dough recipe. On each of the prepared 6-inch circles of dough, place 3 T. of the blueberry filling. Wet the edges of the circles of dough with water, place the 5-inch circles of dough on top of the filling, press down around the edges of the dough to seal, and crimp the edges with a fork. Use a spatula to carefully transfer the turnovers to a non-stick cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve the turnovers hot or cold. Allow them to cool completely on a rack before wrapping them individually in aluminum foil to preserve freshness. They can also be frozen in an airtight container after baking for later use.

*Variation - other fruits and flavorings can be substituted for the blueberries such as, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, plums, apples, cherries, or vanilla, almond, maple, or mint as flavorings etc.

Yield: Nine 6-inch turnovers
