  • Using a pastry cutter or a sharp knife cut the sheet of puff pastry dough into 6 squares.
  • In the middle of each square place a few spoonfuls of the strawberry sauce. Repeat the process with each of the pastry dough squares.
  • Fold over the far corner of the pastry to create a triangle shape. Once all of the strawberry turnovers are made place them onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Tips for perfecting your strawberry turnovers

While our recipe for Strawberry Turnovers is easy to follow, here are a few tips to help you perfect this puff pastry dessert recipe:

  • Be sure to thaw your puff pastry according to the package instructions before starting the recipe.
  • Sprinkle a small amount of all purpose flour on a cutting board prior to rolling out the puff pastry dough. This will help to keep the dough from sticking to the surface.
  • When rolling out the pastry, be gentle and try not to overwork it. This will help ensure a flaky and buttery texture.
  • Use fresh, ripe strawberries for the filling. If your strawberries are not very sweet, you may need to add a bit more sugar to the filling.
  • Don’t overfill the turnovers, as this can cause them to burst open during baking.

Knowing how to properly store and reheat this puff pastry dessert recipe ensures you can enjoy the flaky goodness whenever you desire. When making this recipe for strawberry turnovers it is possible to bake them and store some for later. Here are some easy steps on storing and reheating strawberry turnovers while maintaining their taste and texture.

Storing Strawberry Turnovers:

  1. Cool them completely: Allow your strawberry turnovers to cool down at room temperature before storing them. This prevents condensation buildup, which could make them soggy.
  2. Choose an airtight container: Place the cooled turnovers in an airtight container or zip-lock bag to keep them fresh for longer periods.
  3. Refrigeration method: If you plan on consuming the turnovers within 2-3 days, refrigerate them by placing the sealed container in the refrigerator’s main compartment.
  4. Freezing method (for long-term storage): For more extended storage (up to 1 month), use freezer-safe containers or wrap each turnover individually with plastic wrap, then place them in a freezer bag before freezing.

Reheating Strawberry Turnovers:

Thawing frozen turnovers:

  • Overnight method: Take out desired frozen turnovers from the freezer and let them thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Quick thawing method: Defrost frozen turnovers by placing them in the microwave on low heat for short intervals until they become soft but not warm.

Oven reheating method:

  • Preheat oven: Set your oven to 350°F (175°C) and allow it to preheat while preparing your strawberry turnovers.
  • Place on baking sheet: Arrange your thawed or chilled pastries on a lined baking sheet with enough space between each one.
  • Bake time may vary depending on size and initial temperature: Reheat for approximately 10-15 minutes or until the turnovers are warm and slightly golden.
  • Let them cool slightly: Remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
