This is a crazy simple recipe anyone, and I mean anyone can make on the fly. If you need to make a treat to impress quickly, this is it. If you need to satisfy a craving like.. now.. this is it. Let’s not waste any more time…
1 can of cherry, apple, blueberry, or peach pie filling
2 rolls of pie crust
Powdered sugar (optional)
Preheat oven to 350º.
Roll out the pie crust. Use a wide-mouthed cup or round tupperware container to cut out circles, around 4 inches wide. Move half of the circles onto a baking sheet. (You may spray the sheet or use parchment paper.) The other half will be the tops.
Spoon a small amount of filling onto the middle of the circles.
Use the rest of the pie crust circles to cover each fruit filled circle.
Using a fork, press the edges of the circles together to seal in the filling. These like to leak while they bake, so be sure to use your fingers to pinch and twist and edges together as well.
In a bowl, whisk the egg and add a small amount of water. This is your egg wash. Use a brush or your fingers to gently cover the tops of your turnovers. This makes your crust crispy and golden brown.
Cut small slits on the tops of the turnovers. (2-4 slits)
If you have extra pie crust, you can cut out cute designs to add some personality to your turnovers. In my photo, I added hearts.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
This is a treat I’ve shared with friends, coworkers, and family. Always one of the first treats to disappear to my surprise. (I mean, 3 ingredients!) Easy to do if I’m in a time crunch and want to create something a little simple and special.
