Our family loves this turnover recipe for so many reasons. Not only is it the perfect treat for kids on the weekends, but they are so simple to make. With only four ingredients, you can whip these up in just a few minutes!
If your family is anything like mine, you love to go snowboarding on the weekends. However, getting the kids up and ready that early in the morning is a struggle. Breakfast became an afterthought when we were trying to rush out the door until I remembered this recipe.
Before, my family just ate pop tarts or breakfast bars on the drive up to the mountain. Now I come prepared with homemade Cherry Pie Turnovers fresh out of the oven. I love the look on my kids' faces when they walk out of their rooms and smell the turnovers baking in the oven. Not only does it wake them up, but they rush out to the car to eat their breakfast.
My secret to making this recipe on snowboarding mornings is ingenious. I don't even have to wake up any earlier! Quickly prepare the pastry the night before and place it onto a baking sheet. Then cover the turnovers with plastic wrap and leave them in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning when you wake up, turn on the oven and start baking the turnovers. Get ready in the meantime. By the time you are heading towards the door, the turnovers will be fully baked. You have to try this trick the next time your family goes snowboarding.
Cherry Pie Turnover Recipe
25 - 40 min
You will need:
- Puff Pastry Sheets (Pepperidge Farm)
- 1 Jar Palisade Peach Shack's Pie Cherry Jam
- 1 Egg
- 1 Tablespoon Sugar
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Start by removing puff pastry sheets from packaging. Place the pastry onto a clean counter and cut each sheet into six equal rectangles. There should be a total of 12 rectangles, including six tops and six bottoms.
On six of the pastry rectangles, spread a tablespoon of Palisade Peach Shack's Pie Cherry Jam onto the surface. Leave a half-inch border on the pastries to adhere the tops to the bottoms in the next step.
Now let's make the glue to adhere the tops of the turnovers to the bottoms. Crack the egg into a small bowl. Whisk with a fork until the egg white and yolk is fully incorporated. (This is called an egg wash.) Use a kitchen brush to spread the egg onto the half-inch border section of all turnover bottoms. Place the tops of the pastries onto the bottoms. Use a fork to press the pastry together until sealed on all sides.
Once all the turnovers have been brushed and sealed, brush all of the tops with the rest of the egg wash. Cut three lines onto the top of the turnovers and sprinckle with sugar.
Place all the turnovers onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes or until the tops of the pastries are golden brown.
Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Serve.
It's as simple as that!
