Cherry Turnovers

These melt in your mouth Cherry Turnovers are so good, a rich buttery crescent roll, filled with Cherry filling then a delicious glaze to make them even better. Only 5 ingredients and no mixer needed.

This recipe is so easy to make, I found this recipe, made them and wow, no more buying them from the store, these are even better. The best part is their is only 5 ingredients and no mixer needed. Perfect quick and easy dessert for get togethers, for a brunch, breakfast, dessert. Love them. These didn't last very long in my house you can easily pop 2-3 in your mouth at a time. You can also use apple, raspberry or another favorite filling if you desire. The almond extract pairs perfectly with the cherry but if you do not like the almond extract or if you don't have any you can substitute vanilla extract instead.

  • 2 (8 oz) pkgs refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1 (21) can cherry pie filling
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
