    Heart Apple Cherry Turnovers

    1 ½ Cups Cinnamon Applesauce
    ½ Cup Apple Butter
    2 Tablespoons cornstarch
    2/3 Cup dried cherries
    ¼ Teaspoon ground cloves
    1 Tablespoon butter
    6 Tablespoons sugar
    1 ½ Teaspoons cinnamon
    1 Box (17.3 ounces or two 9-by 9-inch sheets) frozen puff pastry, thawed

    Adjust oven racks to highest and lower-middle positions; heat oven to 425 degrees.

    HEAT applesauce, apple butter, cornstarch, cherries, and cloves in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbly; stir in butter and cool to room temperature.

    MIX sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Roll first sheet of puff pastry to a 10- by 15-inch rectangle. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar and cut into six equal parts. Working one square at a time, spoon 3 tablespoons of filling in the center of each square.

    BRUSH two edges of the dough with water, then fold dough in half diagonally to form a turnover. Using fork tines, crimp to seal.

    PLACE turnovers on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Snip a small slit in the top of each turnover.

    BRUSH dough tops with water and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Repeat with remaining pastry, filling and sugar.

    BAKE one sheet at a time until puffed and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Place other cookie sheet in oven and bake. Cool briefly and serve.


    1 cup confectioner’s sugar
    4 teaspoons milk

    In a sandwich size self-sealing bag add sugar and milk. Squeeze bag together to mix thoroughly. Snip off ¼-inch from one corner of bag; squeeze bag and drizzle icing over turnovers.
