Fold over from corner to corner into a triangle shape, and press edges together to seal. Place turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving about one inch between them, pierce each turnover so as steam can release; Mix one egg with one tablespoon
of water, then with a pastry brush, baste the turnovers, then sprinkle with sugar. Bake for twenty-five minutes or so, until golden brown, and turnovers have puffed up.
