Glazed Fresh Fruit Turnovers

From Claudia's kitchen @What's Cookin' Italian Style Cuisine
 
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons butter, or margarine softened
3/4 cups half and half
1 fresh assorted fruit suggestions peaches, apples, banana's raspberries, blackberries ,blueberries, strawberries
seedless jams that match the fruit, or ice cream toppings caramel for banana's and chocolate

Glaze:
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar (more if needed)
pinch of cinnamon 
water or milk 


Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Using a pastry blender,or heavy duty mixer cut in the butter and mix till crumbly. Add rest of ingredients and stir by hand to moisten the dough. .
Press the dough out on floured board and with a floured palm of your hand press the dough to form a circle. Add sliced fruit, or berries of your choice with a teaspoon of seedless jam. I use caramel and/or chocolate for the banana's, you can also use pineapple jelly or preserves. Fold over and with the tines of a floured fork seal them tightly.Place on parchment paper and bake at 400 till brown. . Bake for 15 to 20 minutes Let the turnovers cool slightly before you apply the glaze.

To make the glaze, add milk or water to the powdered sugar, mix together. I added 1/4 cup of sugar at a time and 2 to 3 tablespoons of liquid until the glaze was a good consistency to drizzle over turnovers.
