Cherry Turnovers Recipe
Diabetic Friendly Recipe
Cherry turnovers made using phyllo dough sheets for the dough. Black cherry fruit spread makes up the filling with an optional splash of cherry liqueur.
8 frozen phyllo dough sheets, thawed
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
6 tablespoons no-sugar-added black cherry fruit spread
1-1/2 tablespoons cherry liqueur (optional)
1 teaspoon cold water
Preheat oven to 400-degrees. Lightly brush each phyllo sheet with butter; stack. Cut through all sheets to form six (5-inch) squares.
Combine fruit spread and cherry liqueur, if desired. Place 1-tablespoon fruit spread mixture in center of each pile of eight phyllo squares; brush edges of phyllo with butter. Fold edges over to form triange; gently press edges together to seal. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Beat together egg and water; brush over phyllo trianges.
Bake ten minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
