  • 1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 2 Tablespoon of dried cranberries
  • 1 Tablespoon of sugar (Optional)
  • 1/4 Tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoon of water
  • 1 (7.5 oz) pack of reduced-fat buttermilk biscuits


Preheat oven to 400°. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray coating and set aside. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the apple, cranberries, sugar, and cinnamon. Stir and add the water. Cover and microwave on HIGH power for 3 minutes, stopping and stirring once during microwaving then cool. Working on a non-stick spray-coated surface, make three-inch flat round biscuits.

Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the mixture into the centre of the biscuit. Fold the biscuit in half over the filling, making a turnover. Seal the edges by pressing closed with fingers, then with the tines of a fork. Lay the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet. Prick the top of each turnover with the fork tines.

Bake for 10 minutes, until the tops of turnovers begin to brown. Serve hot.
