Blueberry Turnovers

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.
  • Makes
    8 servings


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


  • In a large saucepan, combine 1/2 cup blueberries, sugar, cornstarch and lemon zest. 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.
  • 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.
  • Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Beat egg and water; brush over pastry.
  • Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Combine confectioners' sugar and milk; drizzle over turnovers. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Editor's Note
If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

    Easy recipe to follow. I modified it a bit by adding in diced strawberries and some diced apple. I used 3 strawberries,1/3 of an apple peeled, and about 1-1.25 cups of frozen blueberries. Hubby loved it!

    Used fresh berries, loved the addition of the lemon zest. I sprinkled half with raw sugar, and glazed the other half. Both were fantastic.

    Super easy to make. I used frozen blueberries we had picked last summer. They were fabulous.

    Delicious taste but way too runny. Used frozen berries but next time I make this I'll double the berries.

    Wonderful! Have made this several times with a few tweaks based on what I have on hand for the filling. Turns out great every time!

    great flavor, I did bake it at a lower temp because it was browning too quickly. kids said "mom this is the best recipe"
