Quick Cherry Turnovers

Quick Cherry Turnovers

I was recently sent the new Taste of Home Best Loved Recipes cookbook.  It is full of 1,485 different recipes that range from elegant and gourmet to comforting and simple.  I have had a great time looking through this cookbook, reading the recipes, and looking at the tempting photos.  I wanted to make my kids a special after school snack but I didn’t feel like going to the grocery store so I looked through this book to see what I could find.  I found this turnover recipe that was quick, easy, and best of all, I had all the ingredients on hand… you can’t beat that.  They were fun to make and they gave my kids the biggest smile when they walked through the door and saw these warm turnovers waiting for them.   I think I might just be a pretty cool mom in their eyes today.  Thanks for the great cookbook Taste of Home!

Quick Cherry Turnovers

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat.

Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate into four squares; place them on the silpat mat lined baking sheet.  Press the seams and perforations together by pinching them.  Spoon a 1/4 cup of pie filling in one corner of each square.  Fold to make triangles; pinch the sides to seal then press them down with a fork.

Place into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Prepare the frosting while the turnovers are baking.  Combine the sugar, milk, and vanilla together.  Drizzle  the frosting over the warm turnovers.

These cherry turnovers are best when served immediately.  Enjoy.

  11. This is definitely a recipe I can get behind. I have a great appreciation for cherry turnovers. They remind me of cool winter days when my grandpap would make cherry turnovers for me hobo style on the fire. Also? The kids are looking so much older!

    A GREAT after school snack! Can also substitute real berries or use jam. Double yum! Thx for sharing

  13. I love how easy this is, I will have to try this one day soon. Your kids are getting big, making me feel old. Tell them to cut that out.

  14. I tried these, they fell apart before I could put them in the oven. 1/4 cup was way too much, probably should have used a tablespoon or so or pie filling. Or get the large sized crescent rolls, I got original and they may have been too small.
