Don’t you just love good dessert? My favorite are the fruit-filled pastries especially berries with flaky crusts. They are simply delicious. Today I would like to share with you my super easy recipe. It is Berry Turnovers that are perfect for breakfast or with a cup of coffee. They are SO good and SO easy to make. Perfect puff pasty dessert.
Ingridients needed to make that recipe
Since I am not a big baker I like to use already ready sheets or squares of puff pastries. My favorite brand is Pepperidge Farm to make those pastries. You can find them easy in frozen section of any grocery store. It comes out crispy, flakey, buttery and just so, so perfect
Let’s make a feeling
I like to use frozen berries since they are always in my freezer. All you need to do is to heat them on the stovetop along with some lemon juice and sugar until they are nice and juicy and saucy. You’ll stir in some corn starch + water and gently boil it to thicken it up. It is super easy! You can use preserves too if you do not have fresh or frozen berries
- 2 1/2 cups (12 oz bag) frozen berries
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp lemon juice1 tbs cornstarch1 tbs water1 sheet puff pastry
HEAT berries, sugar and lemon juice on the stovetop in a saucepan on low heat for abut ten minutes or until the berries start to release its juices, stirring frequently. MIX cornstarch and water together and stir into the blueberry mixture. Bring to a gentle boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly until thickened. Filling needs to be COOL before filling dough.
Take your puff pastry sheet and cut it into 6 equal squares. Distribute filling evenly in the center of each square. You could whisk egg and water together in a small bowl and brush on the edges of the dough before folding over into a triangle shape. PINCH the edges closed with a fork. The filling might ooze out a little bit, but that’s okay.
I am warning you again .. it may not look professional but I am not a big baker but mange to make those.
Preheat oven according to puff pastry’s manufacturer’s instructions and bake for 15-20 minutes or until light golden brown. Allow them to cool slightly. Prepare glaze while they are cooling.
- 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract1-3 tbs milk
I am drooling as I am making those pictures … YUMM
Berry Turnovers will stay fresh for up to 3 days stored in an airtight container at room temperature. To crisp them up again, place in a toaster oven for a few minutes and they are good as new!
