Strawberry Jam Turnovers/Jam Filled Turnover

Entering the 61th edition of Blogging Marathon with Baked Snacks.I was thinking of doing some cookies for the theme.But my son came up with the idea of turnover which he had it in one of his friend's place.This turnover has been in my to do list since long time.So made it with the strawberry jam,as I wanted to make it simple.Puff pastry sheets can be used to make,but here I made the outer crust.The method of making outer crust is so simple and takes just 30 minutes,it came out so flaky and crispy.So try it with the homemade crust and also the edges needs to be sealed properly to avoid the jam not to ooze out.Couple of turnovers were not sealed properly and some of the jam came out,so make sure you sealed the edges.Lets move on to the recipe.....................
