Easy Cherry Turnovers with Pink Vanilla Glaze

Easy Cherry Turnovers with Pink Vanilla Glaze are made with just a few ingredients. But what exactly are turnovers? Turnovers are pastry-dough circles or squares that are covered with a sweet or savory filling, then folded in half to create a pastry in the shape of a triangle or semicircle. The edges are usually pinched or crimped to prevent the filling from leaking out. Turnovers may be baked or deep-fried. For this recipe we decided to fry them in oil but you can certainly bake them.

Cherry Turnovers

Today we are going to make cherry turnovers. They’re nice and easy and oh so good!! Cherry Turnovers are made with convenient products such as a can of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, canned cherry pie filling and then drizzled with a canned vanilla frosting made into a glaze that’s tinted pink. Made with only 5 ingredients, cherry turnovers couldn’t get any easier. Turnovers can range from bite-size to about 6-inches across.

Pink Vanilla Glaze

Cherry Turnovers are made even easier with an canned vanilla frosting. Canned vanilla frosting is combined with heavy cream until mixture reaches desired glaze consistency. Almond extract and a few drops of red food coloring are stirred into the frosting and cream mixture. The pink vanilla glaze is drizzled over the cherry turnovers and enjoyed. Turnovers can be served as appetizers, luncheon entrées or desserts.

For this Recipe

For this recipe we used Pillsbury refrigerated buttermilk biscuits and Wilderness cherry pie filling. You can certainly substitute home-made pie filling or if your family isn’t fond of cherry pie filling, substitute blueberry, strawberry-rhubarb or even lemon. To make these turnovers even more special, fill them with a chocolate or vanilla custard filling. Easy turnovers are just that, easy but they are also oh so good!
