Every once in a while I try to go through our freezer and use up stuff I squirrel away in there. Yesterday I found some puff pastry and a couple of bags of blueberries that I froze last summer. I always freeze bags full of blueberries when they are in season here. They are cheap, and great in so many things like Blueberry Quinoa Pancakes, Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins, or Banana Berry Bombs!
So frozen blueberries + puff pastry = blueberry turnovers were meant to be! Plus, they remind me of summer, which is just around the corner! In fact, by some miracle, we are enjoying summer like weather here…it’s so fabulous! And such a relief!
Anyhooooo, on to the recipe! These turnovers were mouthwatering good! I love turnovers, but my biggest complaint about them when you buy them pre-made, is that there is never enough filling in them. These have filling. Lots of yummy, sweet blueberry gooey-goodness!
|This is a lot of filling…it was almost too much.

- I found that there was a lot of blueberry mixture…almost too much. You could probably use 1/2 of a sheet of puff pastry more for these (to make 9 turnovers total). I will next time.
- I like to keep sheets of puff pastry in my freezer, as a staple to have around. They are useful for quick and delicious desserts! I always buy them…maybe I should try to make my own…nah.
- You can fold the dough into squares or diagonally. What ever you prefer.
