2 cups (about 12 ounces) pitted dried plums
1/2 cup warm water
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

Pastry:

1 package (11 ounces) pie crust mix
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup cold water
1 egg, beaten


Directions

Heat oven to 400°F

Filling:

In food processor or blender, process dried plums, warm water and nutmeg until almost smooth, pulsing on and off and scraping sides of container as needed. Stir in lemon peel; set aside.

Pastry:

In bowl combine pie crust mix and cheese. Add cold water, tossing until evenly moistened. Form dough into 12 equal balls. For each turnover, roll a ball of dough into a 5-inch circle. Place 2 tablespoons of Filling onto center of each circle. Lightly brush egg onto edge of circle. Fold in half and pinch edge to seal completely. Transfer to ungreased baking sheets; lightly brush top with additional egg and prick several times with fork. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until light brown and crisp. Transfer to rack to cool.
