Last week I came across a post for Fresh Cherry Turnovers on Recipe Girl’s Blog. The crust intrigued me because it was made with cream cheese, and I love me some cream cheese! I also happened to have a bunch of fresh cherries on hand, so I decided to throw these together Monday night.

The dough is a dream to work with and rolled out like no other! Once I made a few large cherry turnovers, I still had quite a bit of dough left, so I wrapped it in plastic film and placed it in the fridge for a future use.

The next day I used the dough to make apple turnovers, and these were my fave!!!

Don’t get me wrong, the cherry were great too, but my cherries were not very ripe and I don’t think I added enough sugar to make them sweet. Making all these cherry recipes totally made me realize that I need a cherry pitter stat – doing the work without one can be super tedious!

I will definitely make these again and look forward to using this amazing cream cheese crust on many recipes to come! These turnovers are great the next day and store well in a sealed container.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

    I saw these on Lori's blog and want to make them so bad! I've got a cherry pitter on order first! ;) Yours look great. I'd have a hard time decided between apple and cherry!

    I love turnovers and there are really not that many recipes out there for them. Yours look perfect and I can't wait to try them. I'm still waiting for the first crop of really good Washington State bing cherries & rainier cherries. Love your blog and I have it on my blogroll. I have to check in every few days to see what you've made. This recipe just made me want to comment!
