Strawberry Pastry Puffs Recipe
What You’ll Need:
- 1 package of pre-made frozen puff pastry, thawed and rolled out to a rectangle or square that’s about 3 mm thick
- About half a cup of sliced strawberries (just 3-4 pieces of strawberries)
- 1/3 cup icing sugar
- half a cup of strawberry jam
- 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk for the egg wash (you can substitute water for the milk to make the egg wash)
Let’s Make Some Awesome Strawberry Pastry Puffs!
Preheat your oven to 180C while you gather all your ingredients.
Cut the puff pastry into 3 inch by 3 inch squares.
Slice the strawberries for your filling. You can for small cubes or go for thin slivers. You can also slice some extra for garnish later.
To make each strawberry puff, make an incision along the sides of each pastry square about half an inch from the sides but not connecting the incision on two opposite sides (so the extra pastry on the side will still be attached to the inner square). It would look like a diamond shape, more so when you fold each ‘flap’ to meet the other side.
Fold the sides to meet the opposite corner of the inner square.
Brush with some egg wash and place a teaspoon of strawberry jam plus a teaspoon of sliced strawberries in the center sprinkled with about 1/3 teaspoon icing sugar.
Repeat with the rest of your pastry (about 6-8 other pieces).
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in your preheated oven’s top rack. It should be well browned once it is done.
Serve with some fresh sliced strawberries and a generous sprinkling of icing sugar.
Note: This recipe makes 6-8 small pastries but you can easily double or triple the recipe to serve more.
