Perfect Peach Turnovers

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Puff Pastries: You’ll need a box of puff pastries (2 sheets), thawed according to the package instructions. For homemade puff pastries, use my recipe from Pumpkin Puff Pastry (omit the cinnamon).
  • Peaches: Use two cans of sliced peaches in syrup. Drain and mix with cinnamon, cornstarch, and salt for a quick filling.
  • Egg Wash: This is brushed over the edges of the pastry squares before folding and over the tops to ensure a golden brown finish.
  • Glaze: Made with confectioners’ sugar and whole milk, this glaze is drizzled over the turnovers. They taste wonderful even without the glaze!

Can I Use Fresh Peaches?

Absolutely! To use fresh peaches, you’ll need to cook them down to create a peach filling. Here’s how:

  1. Peel, core, and slice 3 medium peaches.
  2. In a medium saucepan over low heat, add the peaches, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.
  3. Cook for 10-12 minutes until the peaches start to break down and the mixture thickens.
  4. Let the mixture cool completely before filling each pastry square.
  5. When ready to assemble, add about 2 1/2 tablespoons of filling to each square and proceed with the baking instructions.

Can I Make Peach Turnovers Ahead Of Time?

Yes, you can assemble the turnovers in advance. Cover them with plastic wrap and store them in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning, they’ll be ready to bake! You can also freeze assembled turnovers for up to 2-3 months. Freeze them solid for an hour or two, then transfer to freezer-safe containers. When ready to bake, add a few extra minutes to the baking time without thawing first.

Mini Turnovers

For a cute and tasty twist, make mini turnovers by cutting the puff pastry sheets into smaller squares or rectangles. Add 1-2 spiced peaches in the center, leaving room around the edges. Use egg wash to seal the edges and brush over the tops. Watch them closely while baking, as they may require less time. Cool before drizzling with glaze.

How To Store Peach Turnovers

Once baked, peach turnovers can be refrigerated for 4-5 days. Reheat them in the microwave or oven. To freeze after baking, let them cool completely first. They can be frozen for up to 2 months. It’s best to add the glaze just before serving.
