Let’s Review the July Baking Challenge

July 2021 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Homemade Berry Turnovers. This was a fun, yet challenging recipe for the summertime. It reminded me of two previous Sally’s Baking Challenge recipes: breakfast pastries from August 2020 and croissants from April 2018. Did you participate in those months too? However, unlike both, this dough doesn’t require any yeast. The layers and crisp flakiness come from the mixing and folding. Lots of particular precision with this one, but you all did such a wonderful job. You were creative with fillings!! Mixed berry, just strawberry, cherry, peach, jam, blackberry, apple cinnamon, and more. Some topped with icing, others with sprinkles and/or confectioners’ sugar. They’re all looking delicious!

Thank you so much for participating! We gathered as many homemade berry turnovers emailed photo entries as we could and included them below.
