Growing up in South Dakota we didn’t have a huge variety of fruit. We could get strawberries pretty easily, as they grew locally, but blueberries were a pretty rare berry that was especially hard to come by. We could get them frozen at the grocery store, but it wasn’t quite the same as fresh, delicious blueberries.
Now that I live in a suburban area of Northern Virginia, fruits and vegetable are readily available at a multitude of grocery stores and farmers markets nearly all year long. As soon as I see those beautiful, fresh blueberries I often get as much as I can carry – perhaps I’m making up for the fruit I didn’t get in my childhood. One of the first things I made with this season’s fresh blueberries are these amazing blueberry turnovers!
You’ll begin by rolling out the dough and separating into individual triangles – the dough will likely already be perforated making this job especially easy. Spread about a tablespoons worth of cream cheese onto the center of each piece triangle. Then, sprinkle each piece of dough with blueberries and slivered almonds. Fold over to create the turnover. Sprinkle the top of each turnover with a dusting of turbinado sugar. You can certainly use regular granulated sugar for this step, but the turbinado sugar creates a great texture on the top of each pastry.
Once these beauties bake in the oven, about 15 minutes or so, you’ll want to glaze with a simple almond icing. I love adding a bit of almond extract to drizzle over the top of these turnovers, as it really brings together the flavors of the almonds and blueberries together in every bite. Drizzle the turnovers while they’re still warm, and serve right away. An amazingly simple breakfast treat that goes wonderfully with your morning coffee or tea.

Tools used to make this Blueberry Almond Turnover recipe
Silicone mat: I use a silicone mat on my baking sheet practically everytime I bake. The mat makes for easy cleanup and my foods don’t stick to the pan.
Baking sheet: A nice big baking sheet is a must have for any kitchen. This half pan sheet is large than a regular cookie and works great for anything you’re baking.
Mixing bowl: These mixing bowls get used just about every day at my house. The grip handle makes them easy to hold and the pour spout makes them perfect for batters!
Whisk: This is my favorite set of whisks. There’s a size for every job and the thicker handles give me a good grip.
- 1 (12 oz.) tube, crescent roll dough
- 1 c. blueberries, fresh or frozen

- 1 Tbsp. turbinado sugar
- 1/2 c. powdered sugar
- 1 Tbsp. milk
- 1/2 tsp. almond extract
