Lady Behind the Curtain Dessert Challenge


Welcome to the June edition of the Behind The Curtain Dessert Challenge hosted by Lady Behind The Curtain where every month we are given two ingredients to shine a spotlight on.  This month we are using strawberries and raspberries which are two of my favorite flavors.  Here is my very own recipe for Double Berry Turnovers.

Double Berry Turnovers

1 pkg. (2 sheets) puff pastry, thawed

3 cups sliced strawberries

4 tbsp. granulated sugar, divided

flour for dusting

4 tbsp. raspberry fruit spread, divided

1 egg


1 cup powdered sugar

2 tbsp. milk

1/2 tsp. vanilla


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line two baking sheets with foil then spray the foil with non-stick spray.  Slice the strawberries and stir in 3 tbsp. of sugar.  Set aside while you prepare your dough.


On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry dough 1 sheet at a time.  Use a pizza cutter to trim the edges and cut into 4 squares.


Prepare the egg wash by whisking the egg with a tablespoon of water and set aside.  In the center of each dough square, place 1/2 tbsp. of the raspberry spread and a scant 1/4 cup of strawberry slices.  Drain as much of the juice from the strawberries as possible.  Coat 2 edges of the square with the egg wash.  Fold the dough to form a triangle and crimp the edges with a fork.  Poke two holes in the top of the turnover with the fork to let steam escape.  Brush the entire pastry with a little of the egg wash and sprinkle granulated sugar on top.




Bake for 20 minutes then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.  When cooled, prepare the frosting by combining the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.  Pour this into a small zip top bag and cut a small hole in one corner of the bag.  Drizzle the icing onto the cooled turnovers and then eat up!
