  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 6 tablespoons cold water

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen pitted tart cherries, thawed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

Nutritional Facts

1 turnover equals 454 calories, 19 g fat (5 g saturated fat), trace cholesterol, 298 mg sodium, 66 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine cherries and sugar. Mash slightly; let stand for 15-20 minutes. Stir in cornstarch until blended. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in cinnamon. Cool.
  3. Divide dough into eight portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion into a 5-in. circle. Place about 3 tablespoons cherry mixture on one side of each circle; fold dough over filling. Press edges with a fork to seal. Prick tops with a fork.
  4. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the confectioner's sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle over warm turnovers. Serve warm. Yield: 8 servings.

These were terrific! Just the right amount of sugar to use - particularly with Bing and/or overripe cherries. Delicious Summer treat!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 4, 2011

These turnovers were a bit of work, but everyone agreed they were worth it. The filling had a great flavor, and the crust was good too, though I think added a bit more water to the dough (I'm no crust expert, unfortunately.)
