Cream Cheese Date Turnovers Recipe

Updated on July 12, 2016

Date Turnovers And Coffee

Not Your Ordinary Cookie

This is not your ordinary cookie.

A turnover is a type of pastry made by placing a filling on a piece of dough, usually a sweet, fruit pie like filling, the dough is then folded over, and sealed. Turnovers can be sweet or savory and are often made as a sort of portable meal or dessert, similar to a pie or tart.

It is common for to be made with a shortcut pastry or puff pastry dough; this pastry however is made up of a pastry using cream cheese.

This date nut turnover, is much smaller than the typical turnover. Actually the size of a mini pie or a cookie.

This cookie is so delicious. When I set out a plate of cookies these are the ones that are devoured first . A family favorite for sure. I usually make up an extra batch or two and put some in the freezer for later .

With the pastry like crust made from cream cheese to its sweet date-nut filled goodness.

A cup of hot tea or a nice cup of coffee , a cream cheese date nut turnover, it doesn't get much better than that..

The Date Palm



Where do dates come from?

Dates are grown on a palm (Phoenix dactylifera) . The fruit of the palm is known as a date. They are oval-cylindrical in shape. When dates are ripe they range from bright red to bright yellow in color, depending on the variety.

After date palms are planted they can take 4 to 8 years to produce...

Have you ever had a Date Shake?....They are simply delicious..and if you have never had one I suggest you do..You will be glad you did.

California is possibly best known for its individuality.

There is something magic about Hadley Fruit Orchards' date shake, according to the generations who have been lucky enough to get one. Perhaps, it's the smooth caramel taste of California Deglet Noor Dates or maybe it's the way Hadley Fruit Orchards loves their dates, but it's a love you can taste.
