Holly's Note:
Turnovers are a quick, easy treat or dessert. With pie crusts in my freezer, it's easy to pull one out and make this delicious dessert.

You can use any fruit pie filling. I prefer using raspberries and I just substitute a couple of cups of frozen raspberries in place of the blueberry filling.

Like all my pies, my turnovers look rustic, not perfect. :)
