Blueberry Cream Cheese Turnovers

Need a fun dessert or breakfast that looks fancy but is really simple? You have come to the right place. These delicious pastries with a flaky crust and yummy violet colored filling are elegant and visually inviting.

This recipe is also great because it only uses 6 ingredients and bakes up in 20 minutes. One of the ingredients is puff pastry. You may have to make a special trip to the grocery store but it is worth it. I love to use puff pastry because it is very forgiving. It may not look pretty going into the oven but it always comes out looking like something purchased at a professional bakery.

Ingredients:

2 sheets puff pastry thawed ( I used a 17.3 ounce box of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry)

8 ounce block of cream cheese room temperature

1 egg

1 cup powdered sugar plus extra for garnish

1 cup frozen blueberries

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

1.Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Take two sheets of puff pastry and place on parchment paper on a baking sheet. I used an 11 x 7 inch baking sheet. Cut each sheet into 9 squares for a total of 18.

2. In a food processor, add one block (8 ounces) of cream cheese, 1 large egg, 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1 cup of frozen blueberries, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

3. Process on the shred/slice setting for approximately 1 minute or until all ingredients are incorporated.

4. Add 1 tablespoon of filling to each puff pastry square. Fold pastry over to make a triangle. You don’t have to seal the edges. Bake for 20 minutes.

5. Ta da! Look how lovely these turnovers are! They look delightful and didn’t take a bunch of effort. I love a recipe like this. After removing the turnovers from the oven, sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy! You can serve these for breakfast or as a dessert.

If you want to serve these as a dessert, you can mix one cup of powdered sugar with 1-2 tablespoons milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla to make an icing to drizzle over the tops of the turnovers. It will harden slightly and look amazing.
