Quick Cherry Turnovers Recipe

Refrigerated crescent rolls let you make these fruit-filled pastries in a hurry. My family loves these turnovers for breakfast, but they’re so delicious, they’ll be welcome any time of the day. Feel free to experiment with other pie fillings as well. —Elleen Oberrueter, Danbury, IA
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk

"Obviously it was apparent I did not have the magic touch when it comes to this recipe since I am the exception to the rule. I used low-fat crescent rolls to try to keep calories and cholesterol down. No matter how hard I tried the perforations would not stay together. In addition the flling continued to ooze out. The finished product looks terrible and I was tempted to throw them away. I thought I should give the recipe the benefit of the doubt and eat at least one before they get tossed. Definitely I will be making another dessert for this evening as I'm having company and these would not be presentable to serve. I use TOH recipes all the time and seldom have a failure. I'm glad this works for others. However, it won't be in my regular rotation of desserts!"

"I used reduced fat crescent rolls and no sugar added cherry pie filling. I also used almond extract in the frosting. Lovely and easy dessert."

"This was very simple to make. I used parchment paper on the cookie sheet. I brushed the top of the turnovers with light cream and sprinkled each one with about one tablespoonful of organic sugar. I served them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yummy!! My husband loved it!"

"Easy to cut calories by using sugar free cherry pie filling and Pillsbury Light Crescents. If you are dieting this will make you feel like your cheating!"

"This is a very quick, and easy standby for Sunday morning, and even for a quick dessert when you have unexpected guests drop by. Other fruit pie fillings are just as good!"
