Cherry Turnovers - The Easy Way!

I had some leftover cherry pie filling from when I made those cheesecakes, so what better thing to make than cherry turnovers?  Now you can get all fancy and make homemade pastry dough and all that jazz, but I decided to make them the easy way.  Simple AND delicious.  I like simple, especially when it's 9pm and all I want to do it stuff my face with cherry turnovers.  I don't like waiting.  ;)  This recipe makes 4 turnovers.

Cherry Turnovers
  • 1 (8 oz) package refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 cup cherry pie filling (or a small can)
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
Preheat oven to 375 F.

Separate dough into the 8 triangles.  Now you're going to make 4 squares; take 2 triangles and press the seams together to form a square.  Put about an 1/8 cup of pie filling into the center of each square.  Fold to make triangles and pinch together edges to seal -- you don't want the filling to leak out!  Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

For the glaze, mix together confectioners' sugar and milk, then drizzle over the turnovers.  You can even add a little vanilla (or cinnamon!) to make the glaze a bit more exciting!  Serve the turnovers while they're still warm!

And, of course, you can use whatever filling you want.  I've also made these using sauteed apples and blueberries!  Or you can do strawberries, peaches, even chocolate (naughty!)... whatever strikes your fancy.  :)
