Here's the turnover recipe
Peanut Butter and Jelly Turnovers
- Makes 8 turnovers -
One 16-ounce box frozen all-butter puff pastry, thawed overnight in the refrigerator
All-purpose flour, for rolling
1 large egg, beaten
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup jelly or jam of your choice
1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
2. Lay the puff pastry sheets out on a work surface and roll them out into 10-inch squares, using flour if the pastry sticks. Cut each sheet into four 5-inch squares. Use a pastry brush to brush beaten egg along all four edges of each square. Place 1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter and 1 heaping tablespoon jam in the center of each puff pastry and fold it in half diagonally, pressing the edges together to enclose the filling and working out any air. Use a fork to seal the edges completely by pressing the tines down to make a crimped pattern.
3. Arrange the pastry triangles on a baking sheet. Brush the surface of the turnovers with beaten egg. Bake until golden brown, about 25 minutes.
4. Remove the turnovers from the oven and transfer them to a wire rack to cool slightly before consuming.
It's the first of October and I'm again participating in Fat Mum Slim's Photo-a-Day Challenge. Below is the list of prompts for the month. Please check out Fat Mum Slim's blog post that has more information about participating in the challenge.
Since it's the first of the month, I should also be reviewing my goals for the year. I'm going to delay that post just until tomorrow since I'm so pressed for time today. Check back in if you're interested in my progress.
