Easy Cherry Turnovers with Puff Pastry
These Easy Cherry Turnovers are a regular feature in my kitchen. They are so easy to make thanks to using canned cherries and pre-made puff pastry. A cream cheese glaze drizzled over the turnovers sets them off and makes them the perfect accompaniment for morning coffee or afternoon tea.
I start the cherry turnovers recipe with puff pastry, by cutting the puff pastry into squares. Place the pastry pieces on a baking sheet and spoon a dollop of cherry filling in the center of each. Bring the corners of dough together and pinch to seal. Don’t worry if the filling is still showing on the sides. Bake in the oven. Make a cream cheese glaze from butter, cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar and drizzle over the cooled turnovers.
