Jarlsberg Cheese & Asian Pear Turnovers

Jarlsberg Cheese & Asian Pear Turnovers

Makes 8 turnovers

1 can (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 large egg
2 tablespoons water
8 ounces Jarlsberg cheese, cut into thin slices
1/2 Asian pear (about 4 ounces), cut into thin half slices
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Separate the crescent roll dough into 4 rectangles, then press the perforations together to seal.  Cut each rectangle in half to make squares (8 squares in total).  If the pieces are not quite square, gently stretch them into shape.  Beat together the egg and water and brush each square with the mixture.

2. Place 1 ounce of sliced Jarlsberg cheese and 1 slice of Asian pear on one corner half of each square.  Sprinkle a pinch of nutmeg over each square.

3. Fold the other half of the dough over the filling to form a triangle.  Use your fingers or a fork to seal the edges together.  Brush the tops with the egg mixture.  Place on an ungreased baking sheet, or a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat, and bake for 16 to 19 minutes until golden brown.
