Makes 6 turnovers


8 frozen phyllo dough sheets, thawed

6 tablespoons no-sugar-added black cherry fruit spread
1-1/2 tablespoons cherry-flavored liqueur (optional)

Fold edges over to form triangle; gently press edges together to seal. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Combine egg and water in small bowl; brush over phyllo triangles.
