DIRECTIONS

  • Combine pastry dry ingredients in a food processor. Pulse in butter 10 seconds, then water for 10 seconds. Form into a ball and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Roll pastry in a 12x12 rectangle. Cut into nine even squares. Cover and set aside while preparing filling.
  • For filling, beat together cheese and yolk until combined. Add preserves and mix well. Spoon equal amounts of mixture onto each pastry square.
  • Moisten edges of pastry with water. Fold to form a triangle and seal edges with the tines of a fork. Brush with egg white and dust with sugar.
  • Cut 2-3 air vents in the top of each turnover. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
  • For icing, beat sugar, vanilla, and milk until smooth. Place icing in a sandwich baggie, nip off 1/8" of one corner. Squeeze icing over warm turnovers.
