These cute heart-shaped berry turnovers are a simple and delicious treat to make for your loved one(s). Use your favorite berry or a combo of berries for the filling!
I like making little treats for my family around the holidays. It’s not only fun, but homemade treats just taste so much better than store bought ones. These little turnovers couldn’t be easier to make thanks to pre-made puff pastry. I always keep a box in my freezer for tarts and turnovers. You can whip them up in less than half an hour and they taste like they’re from a bakery.
These are inspired by my berry turnovers but the recipe is scaled for these mini pockets. I also included my go-to powdered sugar glaze that I like to whip up for these types of turnovers, but the original recipe has a cream cheese glaze that’s naturally sweetened, if you’re interested.
I used frozen mixed berries to make this simple filling, but only because I always have a large bag in my freezer for smoothies. You can use fresh or frozen fruit—think raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, or any other soft fruit. Or if you’re in a pinch for time, canned pie filling will also work.
For the shape, you can do traditional folded squares (triangular shaped), rectangles, squares, circles, or a simple cutter of your choice. I used a heart shaped cutter since Valentine’s Day is coming up. Just roll out the puff pastry a bit, then cut. If you’re using a cutter, like I did, you want to cut shapes out as close together as possible. The scraps cannot be used again, like cookie dough. But don’t worry, you can brush the scraps with melted butter and sprinkle on some cinnamon sugar for a tasty little snack and to keep from wasting it.
These turnovers are simple, delicious, and perfect for Valentine’s Day! I hope you give them a try and enjoy them as much as we did!
