Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 tablespoon ice water
  • Filling:
  • 2/3 cup blueberries
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, divided

Preparation

  1. To prepare crust, lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Place flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, cream cheese, butter, and salt in a food processor; pulse 5 times or until mixture resembles coarse meal. With processor on, add ice water through food chute, processing just until combined (do not form a ball). Press the mixture gently into a 3-inch circle on heavy-duty plastic wrap; cover with additional plastic wrap. Chill for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°.
  3. Divide dough into 4 equal portions; place each portion between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Roll each portion into a 5-inch circle. Place dough in freezer for 5 minutes or until the plastic wrap can be easily removed.
  4. To prepare filling, combine blueberries and next 4 ingredients (blueberries through juice) in a bowl. Working with 1 dough portion at a time, remove plastic wrap from dough. Place dough on a lightly floured surface, and brush with egg white. Spoon about 2 tablespoons blueberry filling onto half of circle. Fold dough over filling, and press the edges together with a fork to seal. Place the turnover on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat turnover with cooking spray, and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon sugar. Pierce the turnover with a fork. Repeat procedure with remaining dough, egg white, filling, and sugar.
  5. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan, and cool on a wire rack.
  6. Note: Expect the blueberries to ooze out of the crust a little during baking.
