Quick Cherry Turnovers

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’d be welcome any time of the day. Feel free to experiment with other pie fillings as well. —Elleen Oberrueter, Danbury, Iowa

    Haven’t made these yet but as a suggestion, pillsbury does sell crescent sheets if you worried about keeping the seams closed

    These were really easy to make, but were really okay. I found it tough to make them as perfect looking as the picture, and the cherry filling burst out of the sides of mine. Definitely could've been a users mistake though! They tasted alright, but were nothing special.

    Very good and simple. I used apple pie filling and they were a hit!

    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!

    Do you lay the rectangles on top of each other then seal the edges???
