National Cherry Turnovers Day

Art of Pastry Week 2:  Cherry Turnovers

National Cherry Turnovers Day is celebrated every August 28.

A cherry turnover is a pastry made by placing a small amount of cherry pie filling on a piece of dough, usually puff pastry dough or a shortcrust pastry dough, then folding or "turning" one side over to cover the cherry filling. The turnover is then baked, or occasionally fried, then glazed with a sugar glaze or dipped in sugar.

Here's a yummy looking Cherry Turnover recipe which uses homemade puff pastry dough, or you could just run down to this place and get one of their delicious cherry turnovers. Yum!
