Ingredients:

Cherry Turnovers:

  • 1 Box 1 Pound puff pastry sheets, 1 large or 2 small sheets
  • 1 Cup cherry pie filling
  • 1 Large egg
  • 2 tsps water

Icing Drizzle:

  • ½ Cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsps milk or cream

Instructions:

Cherry Turnovers

  • In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg with the water and set aside.
  • Unroll the thawed puff pastry sheet(s) and cut into 8 rectangles. My 1 pound sheet was approximately 15×13 inches and I cut it into 8, but some sheets are only half this size.
  • Place approximately 2 tablespoons of filling onto one end of each rectangle.
  • Brush the egg wash on the 3 edges of the pastry around the filling.
  • Fold the other end of the rectangle over the filling and press all 3 edges with a fork to seal. Poke a few holes in the top of each turnover with the fork. Brush tops of turnovers with the egg wash.
  • Place the turnovers in the basket leaving a small amount of space between them.
  • Set the air fryer to 320°F for 17 minutes. Turnovers are done when the are puffed, golden and feel crisp on the outside. If not quite done, put them back in the air fryer for 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove the baked turnovers from the fryer and move them to a cooling rack. Proceed to bake second batch if you couldn’t fit them all in your fryer.
  • Once the turnovers are cool, drizzle with icing and serve.

Icing Drizzle

  • In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar with the milk or cream until sugar is dizzolved and icing is smooth and pourable.

Notes:

If your air fryer has multiple settings you will select the “air fry” setting for this recipe.

If your air fryer basket tends to stick you can line it with a piece of parchment paper before adding the turnovers.

If you are doing 2 batches, place any turnovers that did not fit in the air fryer on a parchment lined baking sheet and refrigerate until ready to bake.
