Maple Sausage and Orange Cream Cheese Turnovers
8 oz. maple sausage links
8 oz. cream cheese
1/3 C. orange marmalade
1 sheet puff pastry thawed
1 C. almonds sliced and toasted
1 large egg
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook sausage until nicely browned and firm, approximately 5 minutes. Set aside and slice into thirds diagonally.
Combine cream cheese and marmalade in a bowl. Set aside.
Unfold pastry and cut into thirds lengthwise. Cut the strips in half making 6 squares. Using a rolling pin, roll out each square to measure 6 x 6 inches. In a small bowl, beat the egg. Brush the egg wash around the border of the pastry.
Place 2 T. cream cheese mixture on the pastry. Sprinkle 2 t. almonds on top of cream cheese. Fold pastry over and seal the edges by pressing down with a fork.
Brush the exterior with egg wash and sprinkle with almonds. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with Maple Syrup.
