The Review Crew is sharing summer recipes this week and I decided to share the Strawberry Turnovers that I made last week because they are super simple, tasty, and perfect for this strawberry season.
A friend of mine shared a picture of some she made a couple weeks ago and I decided I wanted to give them a try. She gave me a general idea of how she made them and I decided to try my hand at making my own. It took me a couple weeks because I needed to get fresh strawberries and puff pastry in the house at the same time and with grocery ordering and social distancing, I am limiting my trips. However, I was able to get them added to an order and we went and picked some fresh strawberries last week.

I took half a block of cream cheese and let it come to room temperature, added about a quarter cup of sugar and mixed them together. Then I diced up about one cup of strawberries and added them to cream cheese mixture. I think you could probably sub in peaches, blueberries, or blackberries depending on what was in season.
Putting it All Together
Next, I laid out the puff pastry (you could make it but easy is the name of the game these days) on my sheet pan and cut it into six squares. Then, put a spoonful of filling in each square and fold it over into a triangle. Press the edges down with a fork and bake using the directions on the back of the puff pastry (it varies a bit depending on the brand). You can also use an egg wash, and a few sprinkles of sugar in the raw, to give them a more brown finish if you would like.
While they bake, mix a quarter cup of powdered sugar with about a tablespoon of milk to make a glaze. You could also use strawberry juice for the glaze if you wanted a pink glaze. Once the turnovers are done drizzle on the glaze and serve. These are good hot or cold, expect your glaze to ‘run’ a little if you pour it on piping hot pastry.
