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.
