Peach Turnovers

A second trip back for more peaches-you just can't beat the taste. They are juicy, sweet and so flavorful. 
This dessert was off the charts. It looked just like a bakery item you might buy. It was so easy with a juicy cinnamony peach taste that can't be beat.  An extra bonus  for me was being able to try out a recent gift of silicone liners for the sheet pan. My goodness these liners worked well.  A great replacement for parchment paper.
