Fast and Easy Cherry Turnovers


These cherry turnovers are so easy to make. What makes them so fast is the fact that you can buy the cherry pie filling and puff pastry in the grocery store so there is no additional fuss or muss. The most difficult part is allowing the pastry to thaw. I often make them up for dinner parties and they are great for afternoon tea or coffee. Believe me, your family and friends will love them. 

I use pistachios in the recipe, but it is entirely up to you. You can  use walnuts or pecans or leave the nuts out completely. I just like the additional crunch added to the turnovers. In this recipe, we simply dust the top of the cherry turnovers with confectioner’s sugar, but a glaze could be made up as well. Both add a touch more sweetness to the dish as I find the pie filling is not quite sweet enough for a dessert. A bit of sugar could also be added to the cherry pie filling too. 

Give them a try and let us know what you think of our cherry pie turnovers.
