This sounds like a good recipe, but the instructions are really not written for best comprehension. Nowhere does it say that you are to cut the pastry into rounds, squares, or any shape. Steps #1 and 2 makes it sound like you make ONE HUGE turnover. I am an experienced cook but not everyone is. Perhaps the preparation instructions need to be rewritten for beginners too.
