Easy Cherry Turnovers




-These sweet pastries are not only easy to make, but they're the perfect blend of buttery pastry dough, tart cherries and sweet, creamy glaze. Enjoy!
Ingredients:
  • 2 cans store-bought crescent rolls
  • 1-1.5 cups cherry pie filling
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream (or milk or half & half)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to temperature specified on crescent roll package. (Ours was 375 degrees F).
  2. Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.
  3. Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate the triangles.
  4. Place a heaping tablespoon or so of cherry pie filling at the wide end of each crescent roll, and gently roll it up.
  5. Place on baking sheet, and bake according to package directions, 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. While baking, prepare the glaze.
  7. Combine confectioners sugar, cream and vanilla in a small bowl and whisk until smooth.
  8. The glaze should be thin enough to coat and run off a spoon, so add more sugar or liquid as needed to achieve desired consistency.
  9. Generously pour glaze over hot rolls, and enjoy warm.
