Description

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!


Ingredients

Scale

Berry Turnovers:

  • 1 cup berry of choice (fresh or frozen. I used mixed frozen berries.)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or maple syrup (can use less or more to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice or water
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed (Can also use your favorite pie crust)
  • 1 tablespoon milk of choice, optional
  • coarse sugar, for sprinkling on pastry (optional)

Glaze:


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place berries and sugar into a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until berries have begun to release their juices. Whisk together orange juice and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth; add to berry mixture.
  3. Continue to cook berries until sauce has thickened. Remove and let cool.
  4. Place thawed puff pastry on a sheet of parchment paper and begin to roll out an inch or two larger. Use a medium-large cookie cutter of choice (I used a heart shaped cutter) or if you don’t have a cutter, cut into even squares. My cutter was about 2.5–3″ wide.
  5. Take one cut out and use your finger or a small brush to line the outer edges with water. Place a spoonful of the cooled filling into the center of the pastry.
  6. Top with another piece of pastry and press edges to seal. Use the tines of a fork to crimp the edges together.
  7. Place turnovers on lined baking sheet a couple of inches apart. Brush each turnover with milk and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. Check halfway through baking and turn the pan around if one side is browning faster than the other.
  9. Drizzle glaze over each one and serve. Makes about 6 turnovers.

Glaze:

  1. Mix together powdered sugar, melted butter, vanilla, and just enough milk to give it a pourable consistency. Start with less milk and add more only if needed. Drizzle over baked turnovers.
