The Birth of a Blueberry Turnover; How to Rid Your Fridge of Blueberries for Good

Ah sweet friends
Did I tell you I went blueberry picking
a few weekends ago?
Yes yes, I shared the experience
and I suggested you all head out
on your own fruit finding quest.
Alas a caveat must be added.
Please, dearies, plan out beforehand
how you will use your loot.
Because I didn't
and I've been wracking my brain 
and wrecking my cupboards
trying to use up all these sweet little berries.
So I share another recipe
a simple one
because after weeks of making blueberry goods
simple is all I got left
I promise, this is it.

 Blueberry Turnovers (thanks Allrecipes)

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup prepared vanilla frosting (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Roll out crescent dough triangles onto a baking sheet.
  2. Place 1 tablespoon blueberries on the widest end of each triangle. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon confectioners' sugar over blueberries on each roll. Beginning with the wide end, roll up each crescent around blueberries; pinch both sides to seal completely.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 12 minutes. Remove to cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes; dust with the remaining confectioners' sugar. Drizzle with the vanilla frosting. 
  4. Instead of Vanilla Frosting I filled half of them with a one part cream cheese (8 ounces) + one part whipped marshmallow
