National Cherry Turnovers Day

August 28 annually celebrates a food holiday;
it is National Cherry Turnovers Day.

Cherry turnovers are a sweet dessert that are a type of pastry made by placing a cherry filling on a piece of dough, folding the dough over, sealing it then either baking it or frying it.

Cherries were brought to North America in the 1600′s by the English colonists.

There are more than 1,000 varieties of cherries in the United States.

 There are an average of 44 cherries in one pound.
