Blueberry Turnovers – Junk Food Post #31

UnResolution Month officially has this post left and then it’s all over.  *sniff, sniff*  Are you as broken up as I am?

Well, don’t worry.  I have a sneaky suspicion unResolution month will be back next year.  I happen to know the owners and they’ve agreed to go unResolution again next year!

Regardless, I didn’t want unResolution month to go out without a bang so I was very careful when I picked my last “A month is four weeks, which is 28 days BUT January has 31 days so I need to find 3 more days worth of delicious but unhealthy foods” post for unResolution month.  I knew I wanted to do something pretty fantastic and when I saw this recipe, I knew it would be perfect.

Giada De Laurentis’ Blueberry Turnovers

Dessertwise, I owe Giada De Laurentis a lot.  She was the one to first get me to try Nutella and for that, I can never repay her.  Not ever.

So it came as no surprise that she has mastered another dessert, simple to do, that I think is going to blow your socks off.

So technically, they’re called Blueberry and Marscapone Turnovers, but whatever their official title, they should be called absolutely amazing.

Blueberry and Marscapone Turnovers

The full write up can be found on the Food Network‘s site, but I can tell you that you are going to need these ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup mascarpone,  at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup fresh or frozen and thawed blueberries
  • 2 (9-inch) refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

I’d like to copy the directions to the turnovers here, but since I am only promoting this recipe and have done nothing to it, I figure we should give credit to the Food Network as it’s due.  So go check it out.  Fry them up and enjoy!
