Cherry Turnovers

The recipe is another approach to rugelach cookies, I tasted them from someone who makes them with various fillings, even with apples, but the cherry version I would say is "premium". I really liked the taste, consistency, appearance and very important speed of preparation.

Be sure to try them, they are super soft and tender.


Sour Cream(20%)
200 g
200 g
Active dry yeast
1 tsp
White flour
500 g
300 g
any filling you like - jam with nuts, cherries, turkish deligh, apple slices, bananas, etc.
Powdered sugar
300 g

Step by step


Prepare the dough exactly as in the rugelach recipe, steps 1-5.

Divide into 4 uniform balls and leave in the fridge, or work immediately.


If you use cherries or other frozen fruits, thaw them, drain the juice well and mix with 2-3 tablespoons of starch or flour.

Apples should not be mixed with anything, the jam should be thickened with crushed walnuts.


The dough sheet is stretched in a rectangle, to be as thin as possible, about 2mm.

Be careful to have the rectangle with the small side, ie insist on stretching the dough sheet longer, not wide.

Cut with a knife long slices about 3-4 cm wide, on the edge of each slice put a few cherries.


Grasp the edge of the dough as in the picture.


Keep rolling the triangle, look at the pictures.


Until you reach the edge, a beautiful triangle will come out.


Place the triangles thus formed in a tray lined with baking paper.


Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until nicely browned.

Allow to cool.


Before serving, pass them through powdered sugar.

Good appetite!
