HG's Cherr-ific Turnovers

Turnover Do-Over
You're just FIVE ingredients away from incredible fruit-filled pastries. Grab a baking sheet, and prepare for sweet satisfaction...

3 tbsp. cornstarch
4 cups frozen unsweetened pitted dark sweet cherries, partially thawed and roughly chopped
1 1/2 tbsp. granulated white sugar
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 package Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet (or HG Alternative)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

In a medium nonstick pot, combine cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold water, and stir to dissolve. Add cherries, sugar, and cinnamon, and stir well. Set heat to medium. Stirring frequently, cook until thick and gooey, 12 - 14 minutes.

Transfer to a medium bowl, and let sit until mostly cool, about 45 minutes. (See HG Tip.)

Roll out dough into a large rectangle of even thickness. Cut sheet lengthwise into two even pieces. Cut each piece widthwise into thirds, leaving you with six rectangular pieces of dough.

Arrange dough pieces with the shorter sides on the right and left. Evenly distribute cherry mixture among the centers.

One piece of dough at a time, fold and stretch the lower left corner to meet the upper right corner. Press edges firmly to enclose the cherry mixture. With a fork, press edges to crimp and seal. Carefully transfer to the baking sheet.

Bake until dough is golden brown, about 12 minutes. Enjoy!
