Easy Recipes for Desserts – Blackberry Peach Turnovers
Typically turnovers are made in triangular form. I made these into little squares and rectangles just for fun. You can use blueberries, strawberries and apples in these as well. Here is what you are going to need:
Makes about 24
1 cup frozen or fresh black berries
1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries
1 cup peeled and finely chopped peaches
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup orange juice
Pinch of salt
2 TBS cornstarch
1 puff pastry sheet – thawed
1 lightly beaten egg
Confectioner’s sugar for dusting
Place the berries and peaches in a pan. Add the sugar, orange juice and cornstarch. Mix until the sugar and the cornstarch dissolve. Simmer – stirring constantly – until the filling has thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool down completely.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Roll out pastry puff sheet until it is about 1/10th of an inch. Cut it into squares. Place a small spoonful of filling in the middle and fold into little pouches. You can make these bigger and fold them into triangles. Firmly seal the edges using a fork.
Place the pouches on to a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush them with a lightly beaten egg and bake them for about 8 to 10 minutes – until the pastry is browned and puffed.
Remove from oven and cool down. Dust with confectioner’s sugar and serve. These will keep great for a couple of days in a sealed container.
