No need to toss and turn trying to decide what to eat today. August 28 is National Cherry Turnover Day!
Turnovers are essentially portable pies filled with sweet or savory ingredients. I talked about their history when we had apple turnovers in July, so click the link for a refresher course. Pasties are considered another form of turnover. I’ll remember that the next time I hit a gentleman’s club. Empanadas and spring rolls are also closely related (but not nearly as interesting, as they have nothing to do with strippers).
Cherry turnovers are traditionally made with puff pastry stuffed with a cherry filling and baked until they are golden brown. And, at some point, presumably turned over.
Cutting right to the chase, we grabbed some cherry turnovers from the grocery store. You know how they say Wheaties is “the breakfast of champions”? Wrong. It’s cherry turnovers and coffee.

As long as you got more than one cherry then it’s a win-win….
