  1. Great recipe, but the points values are way off. I knew something wasn’t right when I saw the green points were half of the purple and blue points. The puff pastry sheets alone are 8 points on green for the two halves of the turnover. Add the apricot preserves and I calculated 11 points on green for WW.

    • Hi Sheryl. Did you use the recipe builder? The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

      • Yes, I used the recipe builder in the WW app.  The Pepperidge farms puff pastry alone is 73 points for the two sheets, the banana is 0 and the apricot preserves I used (Smuckers) is 27 points for 9 tbsp. So that equals 100 points for the whole batch, divided by 9 servings equals 11 points for one turnover (on green). They were delicious and easy to make, though.

  2. I am not getting 3 point for this recipe under the green program. I am getting between 7 and 8 depending on my preserves. Can you confirm or show me what I am doing wrong?

  3. Hi Gina- love your recipes and am usually right on with matching your freestyle points calculations. I’m struggling with this one. Just bought the Pepperidge farm pastry sheets. In the ww app, I get 6 pts for 1 serving or 1/6 of a sheet. To me that means 2 full sheets are 12 servings. Creating a recipe, 12 servings is 73 points. Using that to make 9 turnovers, we are at 8 points before the preserves. 
    What am I doing wrong?

  4. Am going to make these now but any way you can convert the smart points to freestyle on weight watchers?

  5. Best website for low and delicious.  Thanks for all the wonderful recipies

  6. Just stumbled into this site. Am I correct that gina posts healthy recipes? Ones that are compatible with the ww program? Dont understand how to maneuver around on pinterest. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

  7. Do you have the calorie/fat info for these? I'm counting calories vs doing WW and would like to try these.

    Thanks!

  8. 6 is better than 7!

  9. I'm coming up with 6 pts on old WW ?!?!?! those puff pastry sheets are loaded with cals and fat. i think i calculated it right. i'll double check my numbers if you double check yours.

  10. Hi Gina,
    Can you update this receipe to show the PointsPlus? It's one of my favorites! Thanks

  11. Keep up the great work and thank you for commenting!!

  12. Gina,
    I just wanted to thank you for this site. I discovered your site November 2009. I have made the yummy pumpkin spice pie, turkey meatloaf and skinny chicken parmesan. I will make more of the receipes soon. I view your site daily. I have told many friends/family about this site. I've lost about 60lbs the past 6 months. I'll still have more weight to lose, but having receipes like yours has helped me stay on track. Thanks again. Please keep them coming. Take care.

  13. Yes, I believe I wrote that. Each sheet gets cut into 9 pieces (18 total) which gives you a top and a bottom. Pictures of the process would have been great, maybe I'll take more photos next time I make them.

  14. ok, so I am just reading this recipe which looks great. But can you be more specific about the pastry?.. Based on the recipe I am guessing I cut each sheet into 9 pieces so I have a top and bottom? I think your recipes are awesome but with out more details or pictures of the process we may not execute them as well.I know some of my novice cooking friends will definitely be cornfused :-). Anyhow.. that is my guess for now.. I can't wait to try it..

  15. Yes, 4 points each.

  16. Does one equal 4 points? I'm trying to cook to accommodate my mom and I'm not too sure how the points work. Thanks!

  17. @Carole

    It sounds like you didn’t seal them well. Sometimes I find putting a little water with my finger along the edge before I seal them well helps them stay together.

  18. It does look delicious so I made them.

    The apricot preserves all leaked out onto my cookie sheet and the floor of the oven. I will try this recipe again, but I will use pie filling instead.

  19. MMMmmmm…looks scrumptious!

    I just wanted to let you know that I’ve given your blog an award…just visit http://graduallyshrinkingviolet.blogspot.com/ for more information! 🙂

    Thanks for all your wonderful recipes…it’ll make my resolution easier to keep this new year! 🙂

  20. Gina- finally made the soup -it’s awesome! Not as pretty looking as yours (check out my blog!)but it tastes great! Thanks so much!

  21. Yum. That looks delicious. I just stumbled upon your blog. I’m going to be striving the eat healthier in the new year so I have a feeling I will be checking your blog a lot. Thanks for the great recipes.

  22. Thanks, Gina – looking forward to it!!!
    Merry Christmas!

  23. Have a very Merry Christmas Gina along with your family. God bless.

  24. Hi Marisa,

    Let me recheck the points and make sure I don’t have an error. Thanks, I will get back to you on that!

  25. Oooh, I never thought of banana and apricot together! What a tasty combo!

    And I’m dying to make your split pea with ham soup, but I’m not getting it to come out to 2 pts. using the ingredients you have listed ( I run it through Weight Watcher’s Recipe Builder). What am I doing wrong?? Please let me know – I can’t wait to try it!!!!

  26. Dear Gina,

    I stop by to wish you a Merry Christmas with your family and friend and thanks again for all the nice recipes that you gave us this year!
