Cherry Vanilla Bean Turnovers are an amazing cherry explosion- all wrapped up in lovely, flaky pastry shell.  AND the surprise inside? Well, I hate to ruin surprises, but there just happens to be a dollop of cream cheese in center of each turnover too.  They’ll completely leave you speechless.

I know, they sound just as amazing as they are 🙂

It’s that beautiful combination of textures and flavors that’ll leave you and your family begging for more!

February is National Cherry Month?  Neither did I until Wayfair reached out to me with their Cherry Sweet campaign and I was like- hey!  I love cherries and I know y’all will love my cherry inspired creation so I jumped at the chance to be apart.  I’m excited to be apart of their Cherry Sweet event.
