12 slices thin, soft white bread, crusts removed

1 pint strawberries, washed and chopped

6 tablespoons strawberry jam

Zest from 1 lemon

6 tablespoons butter, melted for brushing

Sour cream and powdered sugar for garnish


  1. In a bowl combine strawberries, jam, and zest. Flatten bread with the palm of your hand or a rolling pin. Mound 1 heaping tablespoon of the strawberry mixture on the center of the bread. Fold bread over strawberries to form a triangle. Brush both sides with melted butter. Place the turnovers on a sheet tray and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 5 minutes per side until golden. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with sour cream.
  2. Variation: Spread center of bread with 1 teaspoon of peanut butter plus strawberry mixture.
