THE EASIEST HOMEMADE PASTRY RECIPE EVER

The cutenessssss! Don’t you love these? ‘Cause I sure DO!

Could I BE any more excited to tell you about pastries shaped like Christmas gifts? (<—-read it in the voice of Chandler Bing) No, I definitely cannot.

But. HI! HEY! HELLO! How are you? Happy Christmas Eve Eve! Are you out and about, still? Or are you wrapping up the presents? Can you take a break, grab a coffee, and come chat with me? It’s always worth it, I promise!

I’m fairly certain that your recipe box is filled with Holiday cookie recipes, I know, but aren’t you loving this playful pastry? Ain’t it adorable? Does it not remind you of the perfect nibble to serve with coffee or even drinks?

I have always had a fondness for jam-filled pastries – Exhibit A) Strawberry Cream Cheese Pastries, Exhibit B) Roasted Berries Tart, Exhibit C) Phyllo Raspberry Pop Tarts etc…

…and that probably has a lot to do with where I come from, my beautiful Macedonia. Around the holidays, we are all about the “kolači” (kolacky) and less about the classical sugar cookie. In fact, I don’t think we even have a recipe for sugar cookies.

Thus, in my latest installment of recreating a classic, I made this super-easy puff pastry cookie, which involves frozen puff pastry dough and jam. That’s it. Aaaand an egg wash, plus a sprinkle of powdered sugar for looks. Aaaand a bit of cutting around to make it look like a bow , or even a holy cross, according to my dad.

Ingredients
  • 1 puff pastry sheet , 2 per box (can be found in the frozen section)
  • 4 tablespoons strawberry jam
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat.
  2. Lay the frozen puff pastry sheet on a clean work surface and allow it to thaw for 10 minutes. Do not unfold the dough until it's thawed out, but make sure it is still cold when you do.
  3. Unfold the puff pastry and cut it into nine equal squares.
  4. With a sharp knife, score L-shaped cuts at the corners of each pastry square, as shown in the pictures above.
  5. Place about 1 teaspoon of jam onto the center of each puff pastry.
  6. Take the outer corner of each puff pastry and fold over into the middle. Do this with all four corners, shaping the folds into a bow.
  7. In a small bowl, beat the egg with 1 tablespoon of water and brush the edges of the pastries with a pastry brush.
  8. Bake for 13 to 14 minutes, or until they puff up and the edges are golden.
  9. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
  10. Dust with powdered sugar and serve.

    This was wonderful. Just made some to take as a hostess gift. I was looking for something to make that would use some fresh strawberry jam that I had recently made.

    Only one hint for others making this. Go out and buy fresh puff pastry. If you have some that has been in your freezer for a while, some of the edges might be a little dried out. In this case, if you still decide to use what you have, consider trimming the dry parts, as you want the edges nice and soft for making the pretty top.

    Thanks for sharing this!

  2. What a festive shaping idea. I knew what they were even before reading the post and I’m usually pretty dense about those things. Adorable icing sugar dispenser.

    May you and your family
    Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
