  • 1 Puff Pastry Sheet
  • 1 lb. Cherry Pie Filling
  • 5 oz. Cream Cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Milk
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 tsp. Water
  • Coarse white sugar
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. Heavy Whipping Cream


  1. Preheat oven to 375 Degrees. Spray a cupcake baking tin with baking spray.
  2. Using a small mixing bowl, add the cream cheese to the bowl. Add the vanilla extract, milk, and powdered sugar to the cream cheese. Using a handheld mixer and mix until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  3. Roll out the dough about an extra ½ inch onto a lightly floured surface with a rolling pin. Use a pizza cutter or a sharp knife and cut the dough into 12 squares. Spray each muffin tin section with baking spray and place the dough squares into each tin. 
  4. Add one tablespoon of cherry pie filling to each square. Add a heaping teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture to each muffin tin on top of the cherry pie filling. Add another tablespoon of cherry pie filling to the cream cheese mixture. 
  5. Take the excess puff pastry hanging along the sides of the muffin tin inserts and fold over the cherry filling. Whisk the egg and water in a small ramekin, brush the puff pastry with egg wash, and sprinkle the top of each turnover with coarse white sugar. 
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-22 minutes. The puff pastry should be golden brown once finished. Allow cooling before adding the drizzle.
  7. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and heavy cream in a small bowl and whisk together until smooth. Drizzle the tops of the cherry turnover bombs with the glaze with a spoon. Allow to set before serving.
