Turnovers with Phyllo Dough

En Español

What do you think about a plum and guava marmalade turnover made with phyllo dough? Delicious right?

They are ideal with the morning coffee or tea or as an afternoon snack. My favorite turnover filling is apple and cinnamon, but since I had a little of each guava and prune marmalade, I decided to use them as filling instead and make this pastry Dominican style. Although I used phyllo dough on this occasion, you can also use puff pastry. Store bought dough makes it less complicated, it may not be the same as the homemade dough, but it's quite good. I was amazed of the quality and how easy it was to work with this #10 phyllo dough. 

For the upcoming holiday reunions, these turnovers are perfect and your guests would be more than pleased. Make them with your favorite filling either savory or sweet. I also included a homemade video to give you more or less an idea of how to work with the phyllo dough and how to form a triangle turnover. I apologize in advance because I couldn't edit the music audio which ends 24 seconds before it should.

Prune and Guava TURNOVERS with Phyllo Dough

1 package of phyllo dough
2 cups of guava or prune jam or use guava paste
½ cup melted butter

For egg wash:
1 egg slightly beaten

Take one phyllo sheet from the pack, meanwhile open and cover the rest of the sheets with a damp kitchen towel and plastic paper. With a brush coat sheet of the phyllo with melted butter and fold three like a letter. Brush butter everytime you fold. On one corner place 1 - 1½ Tablespoon of filling. Fold forming a triangular shape (like flags are folded). Seal the edges well. Coat with egg wash. Bake at 375 ° F (190 ° C) until golden-brown. Let to cool and serve. Enjoy!

  1. These look and sound delicious! I like phyllo pastry s it is so light and crispy :)

  2. how long do these turnovers last for? if i were to make them on a friday night, would they be okay saturday night to serve? i use puff pastry dough all the time, but i have yet to really use phyllo dough!

  3. Hola Junia! I have not had them for so long... when I make them they are gone right away (longest last was 8 hours):) If you make them at night and warm them up in the oven for a minute or two if needed, there shouldn't be a problem.

  4. I love anything wrapped in phyllo dough! They look delicious!
