FRUIT FILLED TURNOVERS

 

  • Cooking Time: 25-30
  • Servings: 9
  • Preparation Time: 8

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet of homemade or store-bought puff pastry
  • 9 tbs. of your favorite jam or preserves (I use Pear-Pineapple Preserves)
  • 1/2 stick of melted butter or egg wash

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Turn out the puff pastry on to a lightly floured work surface and make sure it is properly coated with flour.
  • Divide the pastry into 9 equal squares.
  • Spoon 1 tablespoon of preserves into the center of each square.
  • Fold each square in half to form a triangle.
  • Crimp the edges of each turn-over with a fork so that the filling will not ooze out of the turnover during baking.
  • Brush each turnover with a light coating of the butter or egg wash.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and flaky
  • Serve warm with ice cream

Notes

I first discovered these turnovers when some surprise guests showed up for dinner. I realized only half an hour before dinner that I had no desert planned. I quickly whipped out some left-over puff pastry and some holiday preserves and turned out a batch of these turn-overs. I was worried that they wouldn't come right, but they ended up being a hit! In fact, one of the guests even asked me for the recipe.
