Mirj these were super! (I only made one change I dropped the sugar quantity by half - family preference.) The second time I made them I added finely chopped apple to the filling mixture and they turned out great too.
What flavor, these were some of the best turnovers I have ever tried mirj. They were quick and easy to make, the strawberry filling was delicious. I had some difficulty sealing the turnovers, they didn't look pretty, but they tasted great. A lot of liquid was left over, so I added more berries and made a parfait with my favorite mock clotted cream recipe. This also tasted great, so double thanks for two treats in one.
