Air Fryer Cherry Turnovers

Air Fryer Cherry Turnovers

These flaky air fryer turnovers are the perfect dessert or delicious snack. Made with a filling placed on puff pastry and then folded over and sealed.

Add cherries, granulated sugar, salt, lemon juice, vanilla, and almond extract. Place the saucepan over medium heat and stir regularly as the mixture begins to warm up.

As the mixture boils, it will thicken, become jelly-like, and lose its cloudy appearance. Lower the heat and let it boil for around 2 minutes, stirring continuously.

Take it off the heat and let it cool to room temperature. Once cooled, store in the fridge in an airtight container until needed.

When the filling has cooled, lay the puff pastry sheets onto a lightly floured surface. Cut each sheet into four equal squares.

Spoon a heaped tablespoon of pie filling onto one corner of each pastry dough square. Use a pastry brush to brush around the squares with a little beaten egg.

Fold the pastry over the filling on each to make a triangle. Crimp the edges of the pastry triangles with a fork to seal them.

Brush the top of each puff pastry turnover with more egg wash.

Use the tip of a knife to create small slits in the tops to allow steam to escape.

Place four puff pastry turnovers in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Air fry at 375℉/190°C for around 10-12 minutes until golden brown.

Lastly, glaze the turnovers with a simple sugar glaze. Whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk in a small bowl to create a smooth and pourable glaze.

Drizzle this over the tops of the cooled turnovers.
