Tuesdays with Dorie: Flaky Peach and Blueberry TurnoversSeptember 15, 2009 at 1:55 am | Posted in groups, pies & tarts, sweet things, tuesdays with dorie | 37 Comments
This week Jules of Someone’s in the Kitchen chose Flaky Turnovers for TWD. My husband refused to call them “turnovers,” referring to them as “handpies” instead. Whatever you want to call them, these little fruit-filled sour cream pastries are good! Like pie, but so much easier…super versatile, too…fill them with whatever fruit you fancy.
I actually made these back in August, when this month’s recipes were first announced. We were still in prime summer produce season then, so I used peaches and blueberries in mine (yum!). Instead of making turnovers shaped like half-moons, I did triangles (no scrap!). Normally I like my pastry to be a bit more golden brown on top, but I refused to make eggwash for just two turnovers (lazy!), so they got the powdered sugar disguise (really lazy!).
I made a half recipe, and got four turnovers…two of them were baked right away for immediate gratification, and two went into the freezer for a busy day. I had that busy day, and am happy to report that they worked really well baked just out of the freezer, keeping their shape nicely with no leakage.
