This is from Diabetic Cooking. I haven't made these yet but DH loves cherries so I thought I'd post the recipe here for safe keeping.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 frozen phyllo pastry sheets, thawed
  • 14 cup butter, melted
  • 6 tablespoons no-sugar-added black cherry fruit spread

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Lightly brush each phyllo sheet with melted butter and stack.
  3. Cut through all the sheets to form 6 (5") squares.
  4. Combine fruit spread and cherry liqueur (if using) in a bowl.
  5. Put 1 tablespoon fruit mixture into the center of each stack.
  6. Brush edges of phyllo with melted butter and fold edges over to form a triangle.
  7. Press edges together to seal and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  8. Combine egg and water in a separate bowl and brush over turnovers before placing in oven.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
