This easy lemon cream turnover recipe uses only 6 ingredients, making them a quick and easy breakfast, snack or dessert!
Course: Dessert
Servings: 4 Large Turnovers
Author: A Latte Food
  • 1 sheet puff pastry thawed (1 sheet equals 4 large turnovers)
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup lemon curd homemade or store-bought
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest about the zest of 1 large lemon
  • 3 Tbsp + 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil (in case any of the filling leaks out of the turnovers, the parchment paper or foil will make for easy clean-up).
  2. Unfold your thawed puff pastry dough. With a sharp knife, cut the dough into four equal squares. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix whipped cream cheese, lemon curd, lemon zest, and 3 Tbsp of sugar together until well combined.
  4. Place about 2 Tbsp of filling into the corner of each square of puff pastry. Fold the pastry diagonally, and crimp the edges with a fork. Brush the tops and edges of each turnover with egg wash, and sprinkle each with the remaining 1 Tbsp of sugar.
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until pastry is puffed and golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
