Blueberry Turnovers Recipe

While you can make them a little in advance, these pastries are best served the day they're made.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, divided
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon 2% milk

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine 1/2 cup blueberries, sugar, cornstarch and lemon peel. Mash well with a fork. Bring to a boil over low heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in butter and remaining blueberries.
  • 2. Unfold puff pastry. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each pastry sheet into a 12-in. square. Cut each into four squares. Spoon 3 tablespoons of filling into the center of each square; fold diagonally in half and press edges to seal.
  • 3. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Beat egg and water; brush over pastry.
  • 4. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Combine confectioners' sugar and milk; drizzle over turnovers. Serve warm or at room temperature. Yield: 8 servings.
