August 28th is National Cherry Turnover Day. A turnover is a filled shortcrust or puff pastry. Frithsden, a small hamlet in Hertfordshire, England and famous for its black cherries, claim to have invented the Cherry Turnover. However, the origin of the Cherry Turnover Day is unknown.
Here is a recipe for super simple Cherry Turnovers
- refrigerated crescent rolls
- about 1 cup cherry pie filling
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 375°F. Unroll crescent dough and separate into four rectangles. Place dough on an ungreased baking sheet. Distribute pie filling between dough pieces. Fold dough over filling. Pinch or crimp edges to seal. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden. Make a glaze by combining powdered and milk. Drizzle over warm turnovers.
