Ingredients

  • 1 13.2 oz sheet of Wewalka puff pastry
  • 6-8 tbsp homemade (or store-bought) strawberry jam
  • 2 oz softened cream cheese (divided)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten for egg wash
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • splash of milk/water

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll out the puff pastry (see notes if you’re not using Wewalka brand) and using a pizza cutter, slice it into 6 equal squares (see photo above for reference)

  2. To the middle of each square, add about ½ tsp of softened cream cheese and then spread gently. Next, add about 1 tbsp of strawberry jam and spread it as well. 

  3. Gently fold over the pastry to make a triangle. Make sure that the edges line up and then crimp them with a fork to seal it. Make sure you crimp well to avoid jam leaking! 

  4. Use the fork to poke a few holes in the tops of the turnovers. 

  5. Lightly beat an egg to make egg wash and brush it over top of the pastries. 

  6. Add the parchment paper and the pastries onto a baking sheet.

  7. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown and crispy! 

  8. Remove onto a wire rack to let cool. 

  9. Make the cream cheese glaze by whisking together 1 oz of cream cheese, the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and a splash of milk until it’s smooth and silky. If it's too thick, add more milk to thin it out. Too thin? Add more powdered sugar.

  10. Once the turnovers are fully cool, generously drizzle the glaze on top. If desired, add another dollop of fresh jam on top! Enjoy! 

Recipe Notes

 If you need a homemade jam recipe, see the one linked above. 

If you are NOT using Wewalka puff pastry, which conveniently comes with parchment paper, make sure to 1) slice the dough on a floured surface OR parchment paper and 2) make sure to use a silicon mat or parchment paper on your baking sheet!
