Blueberry Turnovers – easy brunch dessert idea that everyone will love! Flaky, crispy pastry filled with blueberries and creamy lemon filling.
Freshly baked, flaky pastry filled with a delicious blueberry filling with an addition of cream cheese. Gentle dust with powdered sugar for a finishing touch. Served for a Spring brunch on a table dressed with fresh flowers. That’s what enjoying this season is about.
For this recipe, I used blueberry pie filling. I love using pie fillings in baked treats besides pies! The addition of cream cheese and lemon zest cut the sweetness and add fresh flavors to these turnovers.
