How to Make Blueberry Turnovers using Crescent Rolls
These turnovers are bursting with flavor. The flaky crust of the crescent rolls pairs perfectly with the sweet, blueberry filling and icing.
Prep time is just a few minutes and from start to finish you’ll be done making these turnovers in under twenty minutes!
While I use fresh blueberries whenever I can, this recipe also works with canned or frozen blueberries. If using canned blueberry filling check how much added sugar it has though, because you may need to reduce how much powdered sugar you put in your filling.
For your crescent rolls, original and butter flavor works well. And while you can use jumbo, I’ve had better results with the regular sized ones.
This recipe is also great for adding cream cheese. It adds a delicious, creamy flavor that pairs wonderfully with your blueberries. Use half a container of regular cream cheese and stir it into your blueberry mixture.
And I’ve also made these turnovers without the icing when I was out of half and half, but it’s simple and really adds to the wonderful flavor.
Blueberry turnover ingredients
- Crescent rolls
- Powdered sugar
- Powdered sugar
- Half and half
Once you have all your ingredients together, it’ll only take you a few minutes to get them baking.
Other than your ingredients, you’re only going to need a mixing bowl, baking sheet, and parchment paper or non stick spray.
I like to use a baking pan with raised edges just in case some filling bubbles out to prevent any oven messes.
Step 1: Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees.
Step 2: In your mixing bowl add your blueberries and then gently combine your powdered sugar and cinnamon.
Step 3: Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with non stick cooking spray.
Step 4: Open your crescent rolls and space them out open on your baking sheet.
Step 5: Spoon blueberry filling onto each crescent roll. Do not over fill them or you won’t be able to close them.
Step 6: Roll or fold each crescent roll closed and pinch them closed with your fingers.
Step 7: Bake your crescent rolls for 11-15 minutes. Your blueberry turnovers are done when the crust is golden brown and some filling is bubbling out.
Step 8: While your crescent rolls are baking make your icing. Stir together your powdered sugar and half and half until well combined.
Step 9: Allow your turnovers to cool for about five minutes before drizzling with your icing.
Step 10: Serve and enjoy!
Even if you don’t have all of these ingredients, you may still be able to make this recipe. There are some alternative ingredients that can be used to make these tasty turnovers!
Blueberries: Fresh, canned, or frozen blueberries can be used to make these turnovers. I’ve had the best results from fresh and frozen, but canned blueberry pie filling can be used in a pinch. You will likely want to omit the powdered sugar from your filling or it might be too sweet.
Powdered sugar: If you don’t have powdered sugar, you can used granulated sugar instead. Use the same amount if using for your filling. But it is not ideal for making icing. You can use it but it does not dissolve as well. It tends to make a gritty textured icing.
Half and half: If you are out of half and half you can use milk with heavy cream or butter. Use one tablespoon of milk and one tablespoon of heavy cream or butter to replace half and half.
