Cherry Turnover

Recipe Ingredients

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 egg
1 teaspoon cold water

Recipe Directions

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.
