  • ½ cup Strawberries
  • 2 Puff Pastry Sheets
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • teaspoon Cornstarch
  • ½ cup Water
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice


  • Chop up the strawberries into small pieces. Add them to a saucepan with butter, sugar, salt, cinnamon powder, lemon juice, and water.
  • Let this simmer until the strawberries are soft. Meanwhile, mix the cornstarch and some water in a separate bowl.
  • Add the cornstarch to the strawberries once soft. Let this cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Once done, take it off the flame and transfer it to a different bowl. Your strawberry filling/jam is ready!
  • Once the puff pastry is at room temperature, roll it out and cut squares that are 5*5 inches in size.
  • Transfer them to a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Whisk eggs in a bowl and use this egg wash to brush the sides of the pastry.
  • Fill the center of the pastry with 1 tablespoon of strawberry filling. Fold the pastry by sticking two sides together. Crimp the sides with a fork
  • Apply egg wash on top of the pastry and sprinkle some castor sugar. This will give a golden look to the turnovers.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes.
  • Place the baking tray in the oven and let the turnovers bake for 20 minutes.
  • Serve immediately or later!
