Blueberry Turnovers

Ingredients:
Filling
  1. 2 1/2 cups (12 oz bag) frozen blueberries
  2. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1 tsp lemon juice
  4. 1 tbs cornstarch
  5. 1 tbs water
  6. 1 sheet puff pastry (I LOVE Wewalka brand)
  7. 1 egg
  8. 1 tbs water
  9. 2 tbs turbindo sugar, or granulated sugar
Glaze
  1. 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  2. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  3. 1-3 tbs cream or milk
Instructions:
  • Heat berries, sugar and lemon juice on the stovetop in a medium-sized saucepan on low heat for abut ten minutes or until the berries start releasing their juices, stirring frequently. Once there is a lot of juice, mix cornstarch and water together and stir into the blueberry mixture. Bring to a gentle boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly until thickened. Cool filling until warm to the touch before filling dough.
  • Take your puff pastry sheet and cut it into 6 equal squares. Distribute filling evenly in the center of each square. Whisk egg and water together in a small bowl and brush on the edges of the dough before folding over into a triangle shape and pinching the edges closed with a fork. The filling might squish out a little bit, but that's okay. Brush the tops of the triangles with more egg wash and sprinkle tops with sugar.
