Makes 30 - 32 3-inch turnovers


  1. In a large skillet set over medium heat, cook pork and onion in oil, stirring, until nicely browned, about 10 minutes. Add salsa, olives, raisins, brown sugar and salt; cook until thick, about 5 minutes. Cool.
  2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll pie dough to about 1/16th of an inch thick. Cut out 12 3-inch circles. Lightly paint the edges of each circle with water. Scoop about 1 1/2 teaspoons of filling onto each, fold over and press edges together with a fork. Put on lightly greased baking sheet. Brush tops with egg-milk mixture. Bake at 400 degrees until golden, 15 to 18 minutes. Serve warm.
