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.

      Hi,
      I am so glad you posted this recipe. I grew up making kolacky too. I am looking forward to making these delicious Raspberry Jam Puff Pastries. I just picked up some homemade spicy mango jam I am going to use.
      Merry Christmas to you and yours!
      Sincerely,
      Gail

    These are exactly what I’ve been looking for Katerina… amazing! The perfect vessel for the strawberry jam I made last week.

    Question: could you suggest the best way to store these please so I can make them a day ahead?

    Another great recipe – so many of yours have become faves in our house!

    Cheers… and Merry Christmas!

      Yay! I’m happy to know that, thank you! 🤗
      Puff pastry is best if served on the same day that it was baked. If you have to make it the day before, store the baked pastries in an airtight container, then the next day you can crisp them up a bit by sliding them into the oven (preheated at 325˚F) and heat them up for several minutes.
      I hope this helps.
      Merry Christmas to you and to yours! ❤️

      OMG thank you for catching that! 😁 It’s supposed to say raspberry OR strawberry jam… or any red colored jam for that matter. 😊 Thank you, though!

    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!

    These are BEAUTIFUL! I love the pattern you created. I basically want to be you! Have a very Merry Christmas friend!

    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.
