Apple Butter Turnovers

['8 tablespoons butter, chilled and cubed', '8 tablespoons vegetable shortening or lard, chilled and cubed', '2 1/2 cups all purpose flour', '1 teaspoon salt', '5 to 6 tablespoons ice water', '1 tablespoon honey', '1 tablespoon water', '1/2 cup apple butter']

Place the first 4 ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it resembles coarse cornmeal.
Sprinkle the ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, in the food processor and pulse until the dough starts to come together.
Form the dough into a disk, wrap in parchment paper or plastic wrap, refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Roll out the dough 1/4 inch thick.
Using cookie cutters, cut out turnovers into desired shapes (If you are making 8 turnovers, you need 16 cut-outs, one for the top and one for the bottom).
Place one cut-out on a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet, top with 2 tsp of apple butter (depending on the size of your shape) leaving a 1/4 inch border around the cut-out.
Combine the honey and water together in a separate bowl.
Brush the 1/4 inch border with the honey water, place matching pastry shape on top of the apple butter and using the tines of a fork, gently press down to seal the dough.
Brush the remaining honey water on top of each turnover.
Using the tip of a knife, cut several slits through the dough (to allow ventilation).
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
