Elegant cherry turnovers

These turnovers are so simple to make!

Just remember to buy Phyllo dough…the rest is probably on hand.

Here’s all you need:

melted butter, cherry pie filling or other flavor, Phyllo dough, sugar, powdered sugar.

Butter each sheet of Phyllo dough. Stack the buttered layers.

Cut the stack into squares (however big you want).
Top each square with a dollop of pie filling.
Fold each square over and pinch to close.
Brush each turnover with butter and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 350 for about 20 to 25 minutes, until dough is golden brown. Let cool.

Drizzle with a powdered sugar and water glaze.
