Take a large empty bowl and put the 1 cup flour inside.(note- in the pictures I used a wheat flour so the color will be off. Don't worry if your dough is the wrong color;). Add the 1/2 tsp. salt into the flour. Add all the shortening into the mixture and use a pastry blender to cut the shortening into the flour mixture until the shortening is small bits all mixed in. Drizzle the water on top and mix with a fork until it forms a ball of dough.

Step 4: Making the Apples

Take your ball of dough and put it on a lightly floured counter. Roll it 1/2 an inch thick and cut a small circle from it. Put a few apple bits on one side and food it over. My touch is I take a fork and press the and so it stays together and it looks nice. Poke holes on top for vents and drizzle the top in the cinnamon and sugar mixture

Step 6: Cooking

Put the turnovers int the oven for around ten minutes, depending on the size. It is done when the outside feels somewhat crunchy, but not completely dry. The take a while to cool because the apples retain heat, but they taste best warm. Enjoy!
