  2 c of diced apples & cook, stirring frequently, 'til they begin to
  color, ab.5 min. Stir in cider, sugar, lemon ju & salt; reduce heat
  to mod. & cook 'til the liquid is reduced & the apples appear almost
  dry but still retain their shape, about 5 min. longer. Remove skillet
  from heat & stir in apple butter, currants, lemon zest,  cinnamon,
  cloves & allspice, along w remaining 1 c  of raw chopped apple.
  Transfer apple mixture to a med. bowl & refrigerate, uncovered, till
  cooled completely.
   2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pastry dough to an
  18x20" rectangle, 1/16th inch thick. Using a 6" plate or bowl as a
  guide, cut out eight, 6"rounds as close together as possible. Gather
  and reroll the dough scraps, then cut out 2 additional rounds. 3.
  Spoon the cooled apple filling on the lower
  half of each of the rounds. Lightly moisten the edges of the rounds
  with water and fold the dough over the filling to form semicircular
  turnovers. Press down on the edges to seal, first with your fingers,
  then with the tines of a fork. Using back of a small knife, press
  into sealed edges at 1/2-inch intervals to create a scalloped effect.
  Transfer turnovers to a heavy baking sheet & refrigerate at least 15
  min. 4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Brush turnovers w egg wash.
  Using a sharp knife, cut 2 small slits in top of each turnover to
  vent steam. 5. Bake turnovers in mid. of oven for 10 min. Move them
  to the upper rack & bake for 8-10 min.longer, or 'til pastry is a
  deep golden brown and filling begins to bubble. Let cool on rack.
