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.


  • 1 package of puff pastry
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 can cherry pie filling - about 540 ml
  • 1-2 tablespoon confectioner's sugar (for dusting)
  1. Cut the puff pastry into 8 pieces. There are usually 2 rolls to a pack with will give you 4 each for a total of 8.

  2. Make the egg wash by combining the egg and milk in a bowl.

  3. Preheat your oven to 375 F or 190 C.

  4. Brush the edges of each piece of puff pastry with the egg wash.

  5. Scoop 1 1/2 - 2 tbsp of pie filling into the centre if the pastry. Sprinkle some pistachios over the top.

  6. Scoop 1 1/2 - 2 tbsp of pie filling into the centre if the pastry. Sprinkle some pistachios over the top.

  7. Fold one edge toward the other so you form a triangle. Seal the edges with your fingers.

  8. Place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

  9. Place the turnovers in the oven for about 20 minutes until they are golden brown and puffy.

  10. Serve and enjoy your cherry pie turnovers.
