Wrap each turnover separately in foil; seal, label, and freeze. TO SERVE FROM FROZEN: Unwrap frozen turnovers and place on a greased baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg. Cut slits in dough to let steam escape. Bake in a 400F oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and heated through. Serve with dollops of yogurt or sour cream and chutney.
