Puff Pastry and Mission Cherry Jam Turnovers

Puff Pastry Jam Turnovers make a delicious breakfast or a fantastic dessert.  The best part is that they only use a few ingredients.

Here’s what you need:

1 sheet of frozen puff pastry
Your favorite jam or jelly
1 egg
1 tbsp water
Turbinado Sugar (optional — or substitute granulated sugar)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Defrost puff pastry per package directions and lay out in one flat sheet.  Divide into quarters with a very sharp knife to avoid damaging the layers of pastry dough.

Place a good spoonful of jam or jelly in the middle of each square.  We used Mission Cherry jam and Blubarb (Blueberry Rhubarb) jam from Hauser's Superior View Farm in Bayfield, WI.

Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’s:

Use any jam or jelly you like — homemade if you have it.
