Glazed Fresh Fruit Turnovers

 I love turnovers. I made blueberry, blackberry, banana, and raspberry. Like little hand pies. Topped with sugar and cinnamon.



 Each one had a different sweet filling with fresh fruit. Easy and so fresh tasting.

Banana and caramel. Raspberry with raspberry seedless preserves. Blackberry with blackberry preserves and blueberry with blueberry preserves..... So many choices, you will have to taste each one of these.



I just love how easy they are to make, and are perfect for dessert or even a breakfast fast treat!


The best thing is the crust from scratch and the filling is fresh~





2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons butter, or margarine softened
3/4 cups half and half
1 fresh assorted fruit suggestions peaches, apples, banana's raspberries, blackberries ,blueberries, strawberries
seedless jams that coordinate with the fruit such as strawberry, blueberry, blackberry etc., or ice cream toppings caramel for banana's or melted chocolate

Glaze:
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar (more if needed)
pinch of cinnamon
water or milk


Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Using a pastry blender,or heavy duty mixer cut in the butter and mix till crumbly. Add rest of ingredients and stir by hand to moisten the dough. .
Press the dough out on floured board and with a floured palm of your hand press the dough to form a circle. Add sliced fruit, or berries of your choice with a teaspoon of seedless jam. I use caramel and/or chocolate for the banana's, you can also use pineapple jelly or preserves. Fold over and with the tines of a floured fork seal them tightly.Place on parchment paper and bake at 400 till brown. . Bake for 15 to 20 minutes Let the turnovers cool slightly before you apply the glaze.

To make the glaze, add milk or water to the powdered sugar, mix together. I added 1/4 cup of sugar at a time and 2 to 3 tablespoons of liquid until the glaze was a good consistency to drizzle over turnovers.
