Give the gift of gluten-free cherry turnovers. They look so fancy you could totally bring them to a party or wrap them up and give them to a friend, but they’re so easy!
Gluten-Free Puff Pastry
This is the only gluten-free puff pastry I’ve ever used. I think it’s awesome, and a really good product for something that’s really hard to find gluten-free. I get mine on Amazon in bulk and posted the link below for easy buying. If anyone knows of other gluten-free puff pastry brands, please let me know through Instagram DM!
It only takes 15 minutes to assemble the turnovers and only 15 minutes in the oven. Very doable for a quick dessert. And, barely any dishes!
Wrap It Up
Package them up in a small box lined with parchment paper and wrap with a beautiful ribbon. This package would make a fun present to brighten someone’s day!
