Cheesecake Turnovers

Crust:
1 cup margarine or butter, cut in small pieces
3 cups flour
1 cup ice water3 egg whites
4 1/2 white vinegar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar

Cheesecake:
1 8 ounce package softened cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Optional:
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup chocolate chips (or suitable dipping chocolate)
1/3 cup fruit topping (Ice cream topping works well)

In a small bowl, cut margarine into flour with a fork until mixture resembles coarse meal. Combine water, egg white, vinegar, and salt in a small bowl; mix well. Add liquid mixture to flour mixture. Mix lightly with a fork until mixture forms a ball. Refrigerate for at least ½ hour before rolling out dough.

While dough is cooling beat cream cheese well in a medium mixing bowl. Add sugar a little at a time; add eggs; add vanilla combine thoroughly.

When dough has cooled, roll out dough and cut into pieces about 2 or 3 inches square.

Spoon a small amount of cheese cake mixture into each dough square. If desired, add a small amount of fruit topping into each square. Fold dough so that it makes a triangle and press edges together with a fork. Place on a non-stick cookie sheet. Sprinkle each cookie with 1 or 2 teaspoons of sugar and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until the edges start turning a golden brown.

Optional:
Dip finished cookies in chocolate and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
