Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Cherry Turnovers

These cherry turnovers are fast and easy.  If you're having guests over for a visit, these would be perfect to serve with hot tea or coffee.  Of course, you can use any kind of pie filling you prefer.  Sometimes, I make several different kinds for larger family events, like Thanksgiving or Christmas.  

2 sheets of Pepperidge Farm puff pastry dough (thawed)
1 jar/can of cherry pie filling (or your choice of flavors)
1 egg
1 Tbsp water
sugar to sprinkle of top

In a small bowl, mix water and egg. 

Roll out thawed puff pastry on a floured surface and cut each of the two puff pastry sheets into 6 equal squares for a total of 12 squares. 

Brush egg and water mixture over each pastry square. Spoon a little over one tablespoon  of pie filling into the center of each square. 

Fold the pastry squares over to cover the filling, and then seal the edges with a fork. *Its easier to fold them over to make rectangles instead of triangles.  If you try to make triangles, the filling comes out. 

Brush the tops entirely again with the egg/water mixture and sprinkle a little sugar over each one.

Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
