Well, I’m finally coming up for air again after having houseguests for nearly 3 of the past 5 weeks, AND having tweaked my back big-time. How about I just say that the month of JULY 2015 was a memorable one, and leave it at that! Seriously, it’s time to get back to the old blog , since I can now sit down at my desk without wincing (ouch!). Today I am sharing a quick recipe for peach turnovers!

How I Came Up With the Recipe For Peach Turnovers

After I saw a doctor and was able to move again without as much pain, I canned 9 quarts of Peach Pie Filling after going out and picking peaches at a local U-Pick Farm. I had to make up for lost time! With just a little bit of pie filling left over, I tried to figure out what else I could make with it. 

I remembered I had one sheet of Puff Pastry left in my freezer, and decided to make some quick Peach Turnovers, and off to the kitchen I went! The recipe uses two pastry sheets to make 8 turnovers, but I only made half a recipe, which is why you only see 4 turnovers in my pictures. The printable recipe gives the amount necessary to make 8 turnovers.

Prepare The Puff Pastry

First I got out the frozen puff pastry and let it thaw on the counter for about half an hour. The thawing out time was the hardest/longest part of the whole recipe. Go figure!

Puff pastry sheets are used to make peach turnovers.
Once thawed, carefully unroll the entire pastry sheet, and seal the perforated fold lines in the pastry together (using fingers) to form one whole sheet of puff pastry. You can see the fold lines in the photo below.

Puff pastry is rolled out and perforated lines in dough are sealed.
Cut the pastry into 4 equal sized squares, using a knife.

Peach turnover dough is cut into 4 equal squares.
Add The Peach Pie Filling

Place a heaping Tablespoonful of peach pie filling into the middle of each square, trying not to put too much onto each square (if using canned pie filling, you will not use the entire can!). Brush all the edges of each square with a beaten egg white and water mixture, then fold one side of each square (over the pie filling) to the opposite side, to form a triangle.

Once each triangle is made, crimp the edges of each triangle using the tines of a fork to seal the two sides of the dough together. (sorry, forgot to take photo of the crimping part). You can also just pinch the two pieces of dough together to completely seal the edges of the peach turnovers.

Peach pie filling is added to puff pastry squares, then dough is folded over.
Bake The Peach Turnovers

Carefully place the peach turnovers onto a cookie sheet which has been sprayed with non-stick spray, and bake for 20-25 minutes until light golden brown. When I make them, it usually takes 23 minutes, but keep an eye on yours, as oven temps can vary quite a bit!

Peach Turnovers are baked, then cooled on wire rack.
Time To Glaze The Turnovers

Once done, remove the peach turnovers to a wire rack to cool slightly. I place aluminum foil under the rack to catch any drips that might occur while glazing the turnovers. Mix up a quick glaze while the hand pies are cooling, and drizzle each of them with it.

Peach Turnovers are drizzled with glaze once cooled.
The glaze firmed up in a few minutes, then these delicious Peach Turnovers were ready to eat.  The recipe makes 8 peach turnovers (using 2 sheets of puff pastry), and I think they would be fantastic hand pies with cherry or apple pie filling, as well.

Servings: 8 turnovers
Calories Per Serving: 514 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
For the Turnovers:
  • 1 box puff pastry (2 sheets total), thawed
  • 21 ounces (1 can) peach pie filling (or use your own homemade peach pie filling)
  • 1 egg white , beaten with 1 teaspoon water
For the Glaze:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Prepare 2 cookie sheets by spraying with non-stick spray (or line with parchment paper). Set prepared sheets aside. You will put 4 turnovers on each baking sheet.
  3. Thaw the puff pastry sheets per instructions on box (approx. 30 min). Carefully unroll the puff pastry sheets, then gently press any of the perfprated fold lines together so that they are completely sealed.
  4. Cut the pastry sheets into four equal square pieces, using a sharp knife.
  5. Place a large Tablespoonful of peach pie filling into the middle of each puff pastry square.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the egg white and the water. Make one turnover at a time. Use a pastry brush to brush the edges of the pastry square with egg white mixture. After brushing edges with egg white mixture, gently take one corner of the puff pastry and bring it over the pie filling to the opposite corner. Use the tines of a fork to crimp the 2 edges shut, which will seal the dough.
  7. Brush the top of each turnover with the egg white/water mixture. Repeat this process with each of the turnovers.
  8. Gently place turnovers onto prepared baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for about. 20-25 minutes. The turnovers should be a light golden brown when done. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  9. While the turnovers are cooling down, whisk the glaze ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. You want the glaze to be smooth, and pourable. Add a bit more milk if necessary to thin glaze out a bit. Drizzle the glaze decoratively over the tops of the turnovers. When glaze has firmed up a bit, the turnovers are ready to serve and enjoy!
  10. These turnovers are great warm... OR at room temperature, and are best eaten on the day you make them. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

30 minutes needed to thaw out the frozen puff pastry is not included in the Prep Time. Perhaps thaw the pastry earlier in the day and keep refrigerated until ready to use. Once pastry is thawed, these can be put together and baked in no time at all!
