Cherry Turnovers with Puff Pastry – This turnover only has two ingredients.
I have fallen in love with these turnovers. They are so simple to make I have made these turnovers often this month using several different pie fillings. These turnovers have two ingredients that are puff pastry and pie filling. This icing is simply powdered sugar and water. They are flakey and full of goodness. You will find yourself making them quickly for breakfast or dessert. Yes, dessert! If you top them with a little ice cream, they are the perfect dessert. YUM!
- 17 - ¼ ounce package frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 21 ounce can cherry pie filling, drained
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- Two tablespoons water
- Separate puff pastry sheets and cut each into 4 square.
- Divide pie filling evenly among squares.
- Brush pastry edges with water and folds in half diagonally.
- Seal and Crimp edges with a fork.
- With a knife, make small slits in the tops of turnovers to vent.
- Bake on an ungreased baking sheet at 400 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes, until puffed and golden.
- Let cool slightly.
- Blend powdered sugar and water, drizzle over warm turnovers.

Texas Toads in the Hole
Toads in a Hole called for Texas Toast and then spread butter on it. I had trouble finding Texas Toast without butter and garlic already on it. I was looking in the freezer section of the store and not the fresh bread section. Do not worry about the garlic in the bread; it was surprisingly delicious. If you cannot find plain Texas toast, try the frozen kind in the freezer section of your grocery store. I like the holes of the toast being deeper than regular bread because I eat my eggs runny. Because the circle cut outs in the bread are deep, I did not have any trouble with my eggs breaking.
- Two tablespoons butter
- Four slices Texas toast
- 4 eggs
- salt and pepper to taste
- Spread butter on both sides of Texas toast.
- Using a biscuit cutter, cut a circle out of the middle of each slice of toast.
- Place toast slices and toast rounds in a large skillet with the melted butter over medium heat.
- Break an egg into each whole.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Cook until eggs reach the desired doneness.
