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!

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.)
