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

…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.

    I can’t wait to try these. They look fantastic and so easy to make. But will they be just the same if I make them with jelly instead of jam? We just prefer jelly.
