Instead of making Cream Cheese and Cherry Turnovers the triangular way, make them in a muffin tin for easy pick-up and eating.
I can remember the first time I had a Cherry Turnover as a young girl from, of all places, Arby’s. Does Arby’s still sell Cherry Turnovers? I don’t remember the exact circumstances, but I do remember loving them at first bite. I love the crispness of the puff pastry, the coarse sugar that was coated on top, and the sweet and tart cherry filling. Oh my gosh, I was in heaven. There’s nothing more amazing than Cherry Turnovers than Cream Cheese and Cherry Turnovers or danish. The difference between a turnover and a Danish (this is my ignorant opinion), is the turnover has its name because of the piece of puff pastry that turns over the cherry topping and a Danish is.well…a danish. In my personal observation, danishes are typically open-faced. So, it has always been on my list to make cherry turnovers, so I figure why not now?!
How I made this Cream Cheese and Cherry Turnover recipe?
It is really quite simple, to be honest with you. I simply bought some puff pastry and cut it into 12 squares.
These Cream Cheese and Cherry Turnover Bombs come out begging to be eaten. This Cherry Turnover Recipe is perfect for brunches or potlucks amongst your peers, church members, or friends. You can leave out the cream cheese part if you wish and also use a different fruit topping. If you’re feeling really bold, you can make your own cherry filling if you wish. Just remember to remove the pit (wink, wink).Print
