Turnovers Puff Pastry These mixed berry turnovers are a quick and easy breakfast/afternoon snack/dessert. They are absolutely perfect with a cup of tea, a mug of coffee, or my favorite- a scoop of ice cream! If you’re not feeling fruity, you can also use Nutella, peanut butter, almond butter, ricotta cheese, or honey cream cheese to fill the puff pastry. This version is filled with a super simple mixed berry jam made with a bag of frozen berries. Quick Berry Jam There are several ways to make jam. Traditionally, fresh fruit is cooked down with sugar and pectin until thick (and until much of the moisture has been cooked way or evaporated). It can be a long process depending on the moisture content of the fruit. Adding chia seeds to cooked fruit is another way to speed up the process, like the filling for these chia strawberry jam pop tarts or chia berry jelly donuts. Here’s an even faster way to make jam- use a bag of frozen fruit! This recipe uses a pound bag of frozen mixed berries. The frozen berries are cooked down with sugar, lemon juice, and a cornstarch slurry. How to assemble turnovers Add a rounded tablespoon of berry jam on one side of the square puff pastry. Don’t get greedy with the filling. If you try to add more, it’s very likely that the filling will ooze out while baking. 2. Fold over the puff pastry square to make a triangle. Use a fork to crimp the edges. It’s best to do this to both sides of the triangle to ensure the pastry is sealed. 3. Brush a little egg wash over the pastry triangles. 4. Top with sliced almonds and a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar. 5. Pop them in the oven and half an hour later, you’ll have these flakey, buttery, fruity goodness. These mixed berry turnovers are best enjoyed warm fresh from the oven. If you have leftovers, gently reheat it in a toaster oven to warm up.
