Happy National Cherry Turnover Day! The cherry turnover is the delicious, portable cousin of the cherry pie. They’re usually made with puff pastry and cherry pie filling, and sometimes include lemon juice or cream cheese. This lightened recipe from About.com calls for phyllo dough instead of puff pastry, which makes for an incredibly flaky, buttery crust. Use no sugar added cherry pie filling to make it even healthier!
