TURNOVERS WITH FILLING FOR AFTERNOON TEA


These are so easy to make and you can make them all - or just a few. Purchase a box of Pepperidge Farms Frozen Puff Pastry and inside you will find 2 packages of dough folded over. Each of these sections will make 9 turnovers which you will bake in the oven.



Some delightful tea will go well with your lovely turnovers....









Remove the 2 long sheets of dough from the package and thaw side by side for about 40 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut each package into 3 long panels, then each of these into 3 nice squares...place 9 squares on a baking sheet and in the center of each place 1 tsp cream cheese and 1 tsp preserves of your choice. Fold over the square to from a triangle. Press edges tight and bake at 400 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes. You may need to repress the edges on any that come open.

They look very good. I'll have to give them a try, since I really like puff pastry.

I love using the Pepperidge Farm pastry doughs. They make life so much easier. Your turnovers look so yummy! And that teapot- too cute!

I have long been intimidated by puff pastry but you sure make these sound do-able -- and delicious!

Oh wow, these look so easy and tasty! We had something similar (perhaps they were the same?) at the Windsor Rose Tea Room in Mount Dora, Florida last week-end. They served 2 types: one was strawberry filled, the other filled with what I assume was lemon curd. Yum.

These are so yummy and I love to have one! Adore the tea cup and Queen Berideen.

I am going to take a day trip and come to Old Colorado City and see your store. As a native of this beautiful state it is one of my favorite places. Please check out Serado Valley for preserves & dip starters. My dear friend Alyn, a 6th generation Golden, Colorado native has been part of this yummy business for many years. She is hanging up her jams & jellies after the New Year but you may contact her at [email protected] so she may assist you with any purchases.This is just an FYI. I hope I did not offend. Thank you and know that I truly look forward to visiting your site. Happy Saturday!

Ooh la la...I'm going to try these! I have some homemade triple berry preserves that would be wonderful with this recipe.

Oh, the queen has to do her own baking? Or do you have people to do that for you? LOL Lovely post.

I always appreciate that something doesn't have to be hard to make to be good to eat!

Sweet....I remember making puff pastry dough with my grandmother when i was a little girl---(I got to brush the butter)...was a huge long process and now we can just pull it from the freezer. Amazing--- I'm thinking currant jelly and cream chees with vanilla in it. NUMMY! Thanks for the memory/jog! Sandi
