Best Ways to Store Turnovers

  • Keep leftover apple turnovers in a covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • Store them with a slice of bread to absorb excess moisture.
  • Reheat them in the oven or under the broiler.
  • Freeze turnovers wrapped in plastic and placed in a zippered bag for up to 2 months.
  • Thaw them in the refrigerator and reheat as directed.

Tips For Success!

Be sure to grease the baking sheet or use parchment paper for easier clean-up! Chop up the pieces of fruit in the pie filling if they are too chunky for turnovers.
