Cherry Turnovers

Cherry turnovers are a baked cherry pastry made using flaky puff pastry filled with sweet cherry pie filling. Top these cherry puff pastry turnovers with a creamy vanilla glaze. 

Preheat the oven to 400 F (204 C). Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 1:  

Unfold one sheet of puff pastry to form a square. Cut the square of puff pastry into four smaller squares.

Step 2:  

Spoon 1 ½ - 2 tablespoons of cherry pie filling slightly above the line into the middle of the upper triangle. Repeat adding the filling into each of the remaining squares.

Step 3:  

Lightly brush the edges of the puff pastry squares with the egg wash. Reserve about half of the lightly beaten egg to brush across the top of the turnovers.

Step 4:  

Lift the lower right corner up to the upper left corner. Gently press the corners together. Press the edges of the puff pastry together so that a triangle forms. Lightly brush the top of each cherry turnover with the lightly beaten egg. Sprinkle some coarse sugar on top if you like.

Step 5:  

Bake the cherry puff pastry turnovers for 18 - 22 minutes or until the pastries are a golden brown color. Cool on the hot baking sheet for 3 - 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool to room temperature.

Step 6:  

Make the vanilla glaze by whisking powdered sugar with milk and vanilla extract until smooth the well combined. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled turnovers. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
