Heavenly Cinnamon Pecan Turnover

Teresa Jacobson


These turnovers taste like Christmas! I was trying for a cinnamon roll type flavor and ended up with a kind of Baklava- not that I'm complaining! I LOVE BAKLAVA! These are easy and so good. They are dangerous to have around because I know I won't want to share them!

How to Make Heavenly Cinnamon Pecan Turnover


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or coat with nonstick spray. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; mix well and set aside.
  2. Unroll thawed pastry sheet and cut into fourths. Lightly butter inside of square of pastry dough being careful to leave an outside edge free so it will seal well (or just dollop a small amount of butter where you'll place filling.) Place 1-2 tbl. of sugar mixture into center of pastry. Place equal amount of chopped pecans on top of sugar. Wet fingers with water and dampen edges of dough. Fold dough over to form triangle and lightly press edges closed with a fork.
  3. Place triangles on prepared baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, combine ingredients for glaze. Drizzle on cooled turnovers.
