Lamb and Feta Turnovers Recipe at
Cook lamb till no longer pink; drain. Stir in feta cheese, green onion, olives, cinnamon, and garlic salt. Set mixture aside.

Prepare pastry as directed. On a lightly floured surface, roll half of dough to slightly less than 1/8-inch thickness. Cut dough into rounds with a floured 3-inch round cutter. Spoon 1 rounded teaspoon of the lamb mixture over half of each circle. Fold dough over lamb mixture. Using the tines of a fork, seal the edges. Repeat with remaining dough and lamb mixture. Cut slits in top crust. Place turnovers on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with milk; sprinkle with sesame seed. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees oven for 15-18 minutes, or till golden. Serve warm.
