Fresh Blackberry Turnovers.
My loving husband came home with several containers of beautiful plump blackberries, So delicious.
We ate a few here and there out of hand. Blackberries are so good just eaten plain,or with your yogurt, ice cream, granola, added to a smoothie, in heavy cream. The possibilities are endless….but…
I really wanted a treat. I wanted them warm and tender, a little sweeter.
I really had a desire to make a sauce, to break the berries down and eat them warmed. I thought about making an ice cream topping, blackberry crumble bars and once again the possibilities are endless.
That is when a picture of a turnover showed up in my feed.
The answer to my dilemma? Turnovers…so simple.
Quick and easy with store bought puff pastry…no I don’t make my own. You are certainly welcome to.
Turnovers make a tummy happy…mine anyways. Yours too, I hope.
