I love quick and easy recipes, and the boys love fruit desserts, so these fruit turnovers are great for everyone!
Last year, our youngest son was going to “Alice School” a few hours a week. Mrs. Alice is a dear friend from church who worked with our oldest and middle son while we were homeschooling. She taught them different aspects of reading, math, the Bible, and sometimes incorporated a cooking theme to her lesson. What a gift we had in her teaching the boys! She made this recipe with Z and we make it every so often. Well, a few weeks/months ago, he asked if we could make a video of him making turnovers. We made one for Instagram stories, but he wanted it on YouTube (of course!) ha! So that’s where this started. I sure do love when they help me with ideas for the blog.
These fruit turnovers as super simple to make and the kids can do it by themselves. (I help them with the oven part, of course.) You can use any fruit pie filling. We’ve tried apple, blueberry, and cherry and they love them all.
- one can of refrigerated crescent rolls
- one can of pie filling - any fruit will do!
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Place a sheet of parchment paper on the pan.
- Lay out the 8 crescent roll triangles.
- Dollop a spoonful of pie filling in the center of each triangle.
- Roll each tip over the filling and pinch dough together to stick.
- Cook for 8-10 minutes at 375.
- Remove when golden brown and no longer doughy.
- Let cool and enjoy!
