Blackberry Peach Turnovers

pastryparrot1's picture
Typically turnovers are made in triangular form. I made these into little squares and rectangles just for fun. You can use blueberries, strawberries and apples in these as well.
Ingredients
  Fresh blackberries 1 Cup (16 tbs) (or frozen)
  Fresh raspberries 1 Cup (16 tbs) (or frozen)
  Peaches 1 Cup (16 tbs), peeled, chopped finely
  Sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Orange juice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Corn starch 2 Tablespoon
  Puff pastry sheet 1 Medium, thawed
  Egg 1 Medium, lightly beaten
  Confectioner sugar 2 Tablespoon (FOR DUSTING)
Directions

GETTING READY
1. In a pan place the berries and peaches. Sprinkle sugar and pour in orange juice and cornstarch. Mix until the sugar and the cornstarch dissolve.
2. Place on heat to simmer the mixture, stirring constantly until the filling has thickened, about 10 minutes.
3. Remove from heat and cool down completely.
4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

MAKING
6. Roll out pastry puff sheet until it is about 1/10th of an inch. Cut it into squares.
7. Place a small spoonful of filling in the middle and fold into little pouches. You can make these bigger and fold them into triangles.
8. Firmly seal the edges using a fork and place the pouches on to a parchment lined baking sheet.
9. Brush them with a lightly beaten egg and bake them for about 8 to 10 minutes or until the pastry is browned and puffed.
10. Remove from oven and cool down.
11. Dust with confectioner’s sugar.

SERVING
12. In a serving plate either it can be served as a snack or as dessert.

TIPS
These will keep great for a couple of days in a sealed container.
