Turnover question

I bought frozen puff pastry, a can of poppy seed paste, and a small brick (8 oz. ?) of cream cheese. May I mix half the poppy filling with the creame cheese, then stuff the triangles of dough and bake for like, 30 minutes?

Will this work out?

Thanks, Eric Austin Tx. (Not a Baker, obviously)..

Sounds like it would be good, but I'm no baker either. Let us know if you try it and how it worked out, good or bad.

puff pastry popovers work with all kinds of fillings -

one tip: preheat the oven and a baking stone - bake on the stone (with or without parchment paper - sometimes things ooze out & makes a mess....) the bottom heat from a hot stone will help a lot in cooking the bottom of the popover (ie minimizes the 'goo' factor)

i would just use the poppy seed filling. the cream cheese might melt to much you could always whip it up and serve on top. just add a touch of vanilla

Since Giggler seems to have produced her poppyseed turnovers successfully, I'd like to ask another question:

Would it be feasible (never mind feasible; just because it can be done doesn't mean it's a good idea); do you think it would taste good to fill some pie pastry turnovers with hot mango chutney or would it just be a waste of two good ingredients? I just finished watching two hours of "Chopped" and am feeling a little giddy.
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

if you put enough powdered sugar on them, you can make popovers with rocks in the middle and still get compliments. . . .

two "kinds" - savory and sweet -
it's a go for the mango chutney
