Greedy Recipe! Easy Cherry Turnovers

Is today the appointed day for a teensy bit of greedy? You could be gnawing on Easy Cherry Turnovers in mere minutes…

cherry turnovers

Back in the day when we used to eat fast food, the hubs would always order a turnover from Arby’s. But alas! Now we can have them homemade. Easy Cherry Turnovers is fantastical for the occasional greedy snacking or when you want to impress hungry house guests without slaving too long in the kitchen.


Adapted from Serves 4. Double the recipe for extra-greediness.
  • 1 cup cherry pie filling
  • 1 tube refrigerated Crescent rolls
  • 1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • tiny dash of lemon juice


  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Open crescent rolls and separate into 4 rectangles, following the perforated lines.
  • Each rectangle will also have a perforated line separating it into triangles. Do not break this line. Instead, squeeze/press this perforation together to seal it.
  • Add 1/4 cup pie filling to one side of each rectangle, then fold over and use a fork to seal outer edges.
  • Bake on cookie sheet for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Using a spoon, drizzle on the glaze in quick, whispy movements.


  • Add confectioner’s sugar, milk  and dash of lemon juice to bowl, then blend together.
  • You may need to add more milk or sugar depending on the consistency you desire.

Since this recipe was a tasty success, my next move will be to try it using fresh cherries.


…and now you can fro-down! Ironically, I am detoxing this week and will not be able to join you in turnover-gnawing until the weekend. You bettah save me a piece. Yes, that is a threat.

    I do this with lemon pie filling. Oh yes. It’s good too :)

      I’m glad you mentioned the lemon filing. I wasn’t sure if that would work but you just confirmed it does. Please don’t take all my noms. You be greedy.

    This is so easy even I could make it. Except I don’t cook! Like my kitchen cupboards are full of board games and crafting supplies and my oven has been broken for years and I use it for storage. When I sell the house I’ll get a new stove. For now I have a toaster oven and a microwave. Of course I don’t even know what confectioner’s sugar is!

    These look “fantastical” I love a quick recipe. How many calories do you think they wold contain? because I’m going to be eating quite a few! :)

    • yumyucky says:

      Hey Stuart. Each turnover is a little over 300 calories. They’re a pretty good size, so you can get away with sharing and still feeling satisfied.

  10. Tamara says:

    I’ll always save you a piece, especially because you provided the amazing recipe! So thank you for that.
    I used to eat fast food too, but it’s been about a decade.
    And you just gave me a real throwback to Arby’s turnovers! Only on vacation, though, because there aren’t any around here.
