Sugar Mama's Cherry Turnovers

A fellow WAHM, blogger, and Missourian posted a recipe on her blog this past week for Semi-Homemade Cherry Turnovers.  Last October the hubby and I went to a B&B in Hermann, MO where we had some cherry turnovers that were to die for (before then I was not a cherry fan at all).  Trying to recreate the yumminess we experienced during our getaway, I gave her super simple recipe a shot.  The results, a super delicious, flaky, and moist turnover.  Now, this recipe is semi-homemade, for all of you who aren't Sandra Lee fans, what that means is that it's part store bought and part homemade.  This recipe is not only easy to make, bu doesn't cost a whole lot.  You could save more money if you made everything from scratch, but for a quick dessert, this may be my new go-to option.  Try switching out the cherry for different pie fillings (maybe apple next?).
Sugar Mama's Cherry Turnovers
2 Cans of Crescent Rolls
20 oz Can of Cherry Pie Filling
1 egg, beaten
Powdered Sugar for Sprinkling
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Open one can of Crescent Rolls and spread out each of the 8 triangles on the baking sheet, making sure they are not touching each other.
2. Spoon a small amount of Cherry Pie Filling across each triangle. Leave at least 1/4" edge all around.  {I like to make sure there are at least 2 or 3 cherries per triangle, so that they are not just filled with the cherry gel. Try not to mound them up too high with filling.}
3. Brush the beaten egg around the edges of each triangle, where you made sure not to spread the filling.
4. Open the second can of Crescent Rolls and lightly stretch each triangle, before laying across the bottom triangle and filling. Lightly press around all the edges of each turnover, so that the top and bottom pieces stay together.
5. Lightly brush the egg across the top of each turnover. This will help them to brown as they bake.
6. Bake for 18 minutes, or until golden brown and fully baked.
7. Sprinkle with Powdered Sugar and top with remaining Cherry Pie Filling
MAKES: 8 Turnovers
