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!

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 cutouts in the bread are deep, I did not have any trouble with my eggs breaking.

  1. Your review is wonderful and the recipes posted are mouthwatering. I have used Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks for years although my sister swiped almost all of them. Never leave a GBP cookbook where someone can nab it.

  2. I love Gooseberry Cookbooks! I give them as gifts, as well as use them. My favorite is an older one that I have about “from scratch” cooking.

  3. I have tried many of the recipes in m gp cookbooks. one of them is for a chocolate chip cheese ball, and it sure is delicious!!!!

  4. My Grandmother always gave me Gooseberry books for Christmas! I haven’t got a recent book in awhile and would love to add a new book to my collection. Miss you GRANDMA!

  5. I have tried several of the Gooseberry recipes now and I really don’t have one that I really like to make over the other. They are all so simple to prepare and delicious to eat.

  6. Diane, thank you for all you do to help make our lives easier. This cookbook looks great. Hope you have a great holiday season.

  7. I collect GP cookbooks, so I’ve made too many to count! Those turnovers look SO yummy, though – and I have puff pastry in the freezer, so I may have to pick up some pie filling after church!

  8. I have tried some GP recipes but at the moment I can’t remember which ones. I do know they are good and this book looks like one I’d put to good use. Thanks for the chance. Nice review!

  9. I use many Goosebery Patch recipes and love trying new obes. My family especially loves the deviled egg recipe from Cozy Kitchen and the creamy chicken and noodle slow cooker recipes.
