Black and Blue Turnover….Not

The moment I saw this recipe, I knew how I wanted to make it. Blue and black berries. Did stores that I frequent co-operate. No. I found fresh and frozen blueberries but no blackberries. I put it off for two weeks I couldn’t anymore so instead I am make blue and straw berry turnovers. Huh.

I bought the heavy cream first with the expectation of making scones and then I saw this recipe and I just had to make it.

Black and Blue Turnover don’t you just love the name, I know I did and was truly disappointed when I couldn’t find blackberries.

On a good note, LOVED the dough. It was easy to make up and although it was a three day process I thought it was way to simple. It was 3 days because the dough needs to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days before being used. I only left it overnight.

Day 1
Put the dough together, wrap and put in the fridge.

Day 2
Put the turnovers together and put back in the fridge.

Day 3
Get up, turn on oven to pre-heat, sneak back to bed for 5…15…I think it was actually 30 but who’s counting. Pop turnovers into a timer controlled oven and sneak back to bed. Miraculously get up on time to serve this healthy but sweet breakfast and mid morning snack.

This dough actually freezes really well. I froze some in individual serving sizes and came back just a day later to make another one.

My contribution to 52 weeks of baking week 22.

By the way the original recipe I used was actually Blackberry-Apple Turnovers.
