A turnover is a type of pastry made by placing a filling on a piece of dough, folding the dough over, and sealing it. Turnovers can be sweet or savory and are often made as a sort of portable meal or dessert, similar to a sandwich.

Turnovers can be filled with everything from apples and blueberries, to meats like chicken and beef to cheese, raisins, cranberries and sweet potatoes .
