Fresh Apple Pockets

Crust
2 to 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 package Fleischmann's RapidRise Yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup butter or margarine, cut up

Filling
2 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (about 2 medium)
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands Ground Cinnamon

Topping
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon water
Additional sugar


To make crust:
In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, 2 teaspoons
sugar and salt. Heat water and butter until very warm (120 to 130 F);
butter does not need to melt. Stir into dry ingredients. Stir in
enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured
surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes. Cover; let
rest 10 minutes.

To make filling:
In medium bowl, combine apples, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour
and cinnamon; toss to coat evenly. Set aside. Divide dough in half.
Roll each to 10-inch square; cut into 4 (5-inch) squares. Place
about 1/4 cup filling onto center of each. Bring corners up over
filling; pinch together to seal. Transfer to greased large baking
sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in
size, about 20 to 40 minutes.

In small bowl, combine egg and water; brush onto tops of dough.
Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375 F for 20 to 25 minutes or until
golden brown. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.

Makes 8 pockets
