Easy Cherry Turnovers

This happens to be one of my family's favorite desserts.  It's simple, cheap, and warms your soul.  I found this recipe when I was checking out a a friend's blog.  I can not express how simple this recipe is!  Once you make it, you'll want to make it everyday.  Please note, this is not my own recipe.  You can find the original recipe here.

Sugar Mama's Cherry Turnovers

INGREDIENTS
2 Cans of Crescent Rolls
20 oz Can of Cherry Pie Filling (try apple, peach, or mixed berry too!)
1 egg, beaten
Powdered Sugar for Sprinkling
DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Open one can of Crescent Rolls and spread out each of the 8 triangles on the baking sheet, making sure they are not touching each other.
2. Spoon a small amount of Cherry Pie Filling across each triangle. Leave at least 1/4" edge all around.  {I like to make sure there are at least 2 or 3 cherries per triangle, so that they are not just filled with the cherry gel. Try not to mound them up too high with filling.}
3. Brush the beaten egg around the edges of each triangle, where you made sure not to spread the filling.
4. Open the second can of Crescent Rolls and lightly stretch each triangle, before laying across the bottom triangle and filling. Lightly press around all the edges of each turnover, so that the top and bottom pieces stay together.
5. Lightly brush the egg across the top of each turnover. This will help them to brown as they bake.
6. Bake for 18 minutes, or until golden brown and fully baked.
7. Sprinkle with Powdered Sugar and top with remaining Cherry Pie Filling
MAKES: 8 Turnovers
