Using store bought puff pastry makes these peach turnovers easy to put together. The reward, a warm, flaky pocket of cinnamon-spiced peaches, is more than worth the effort.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups diced peaches, from about 2 large peaches

  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar

  • 4 teaspoons sugar, divided

  • 2 teaspoons instant tapioca

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon juice from 1 lemon

  • 1 (17.3 ounce) package puff pastry

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten with 1 teaspoon water

Directions

  1. Adjust oven racks to upper and lower middle positions. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine diced peaches, brown sugar, 2 teaspoons sugar, tapioca, salt, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Let stand 10 minutes.

  2. Unfold puff pastry sheets onto a clean work surface. Cut each sheet of pastry into four rectangles.

  3. Top one half of each rectangle with peach filling. Fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle, pressing out excess air. Use your fingers or a fork to press and seal the pastry together. Repeat with remaining squares. Brush each turnover with egg wash and then sprinkle with remaining sugar. Use a knife to make three 1 inch slits on the top of each pastry. Bake turnovers until golden, about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
