Mini Gluten-Free Turnovers: How this Recipe is Better
So to be clear, fruit turnovers are a treat, not health food. But to be even more clear, we are huge fans of delicious treats!
What we love about this recipe is that it is super quick because doesn’t actually require cooking fresh fruit. And, the miniature size is really helpful in portion control for adults and kids alike.
These would fit great into a lunch box wrapped with parchment paper and tied with a string. They are also a stunning dessert to bring to a party.
