The title says it all...

Top Review by ImPat

I made these for the DM as a birthday treat dessert. I only ended up making 9 as that was as many as I could fit on my tray and I was running short of time. The only change I made which takes away the skinny girl aspect was to use melted butter (brushing it on) instead of spray oil as my oil was not spraying as a fine mist but in clumps otherwise made as per recipe and they were beautifully crisp and oh so good, thank you ForeverMama, made for Photo Tag tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all filling ingredients.
  2. Place stacked sheets of phyllo on a flat surface and cover with plastic wrap to keep from drying out.
  3. Place 1 phyllo sheet on work surface. Lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Top with another sheet. Cut lengthwise in three 4-inch-wide strips. Move strips apart. Mound 1 heaping tablespoon filling at one end about 1-inch from corner. Fold opposite corner at same end over filling, forming a triangle. Continue folding your way up the strip, as you would a flag, to the end.
  4. Repeat with remaining phyllo and the filling. You'll have 12 turnovers. (Can be made ahead up to this point and frozen on a tray or cookie sheet. When firm, pack in plastic bags.).
  5. To bake freshly made or frozen turnovers: Heat oven to 400-degrees F. Lightly coat a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  6. Arrange turnovers seam-side down on prepared cookie sheet. Lightly spray tops with cooking spray. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake 15 - 17 minutes, or until golden. Remove to wire rack to cool.
