Cherry Almond Turnovers


These Cherry Almond Turnovers are a quick and delightful treat that your family will love. With just a few ingredients, you can create a delicious dessert or breakfast pastry that’s perfect for any occasion.



For the Turnovers:

  • 2 cans of crescent rolls
  • 1 can of cherry pie filling (you can substitute with any flavor of your choice)

For the Almond Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons milk (add more milk to thin as needed)


1. Preheat and Prepare:

  • Preheat your oven according to the temperature specified on the crescent roll can (usually 375°F or 190°C).

2. Assemble the Turnovers:

  • Unroll the crescent rolls and separate them into individual triangles.
  • Spoon a small amount of cherry pie filling near the large end of each crescent roll triangle.
  • Gently roll the crescent roll over the filling towards the opposite side and tuck the ends under to seal.

3. Bake:

  • Place the filled crescents on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly greased.
  • Bake according to the directions on the crescent roll can, typically for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.

4. Prepare the Glaze:

  • While the turnovers are baking, prepare the glaze by mixing together the powdered sugar, almond extract, and milk in a small bowl. Stir until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add a little more milk until it reaches the desired consistency.

5. Glaze and Enjoy:

  • Once the turnovers are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly.
  • Drizzle the almond glaze over the warm turnovers.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Cooking Notes and Variations:

Cooking Notes:

  • Ensure you do not overfill the crescent rolls to prevent the filling from oozing out during baking.
  • Allow the turnovers to cool slightly before adding the glaze to prevent it from melting off completely.


  • Flavor Swap: You can use any fruit pie filling you like. Apple, blueberry, or peach would be great alternatives.
  • Nuts: Add chopped almonds or pecans inside the turnover for a crunchy texture.
  • Chocolate Drizzle: For an extra indulgent treat, drizzle melted chocolate over the top of the turnovers along with the almond glaze.
  • Cream Cheese Filling: Mix softened cream cheese with a bit of sugar and vanilla extract and add it alongside the fruit filling for a creamy twist.

Keto and Low-Carb Version:

Keto Crescent Rolls:

  • Replace the crescent rolls with a keto-friendly dough made from almond flour, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, egg, and baking powder.

Keto Filling:

  • Use a sugar-free cherry pie filling or make your own with fresh or frozen cherries, sweetened with a keto-approved sweetener like erythritol.

Keto Glaze:

  • Replace powdered sugar with powdered erythritol or another keto sweetener, and follow the same instructions for the almond glaze.
