Puff Pastry: Warm, buttery, soft, and flaky. Add a sweet or savory filling. It can be used as the base for so many delicious recipes.
This is a super simple recipe that I made up. No exact measurements. Make sure you thaw the puff pastry on the counter for about 20 minutes, and preheat the oven according to the temperature recommended on the box.
1 box frozen puff Pastry (2 sheets)
1 jar of fig jam
1 pkg mascarpone cheese
1 beaten egg
Roll out and then cut the puff pastry into 9 squares. Add a dollop each of jam, mascarpone, and then drizzle with honey.
Then, brush the edges of the pastry with egg, and fold in all edges to make a pocket square. Brush the top with more egg
Very Important! You need a baking pan with raised edges because the filling melts and gets everything gooey. This is good because it slightly caramelizes and makes these pastries ah-mazing. Bad news if you use a flat baking sheet.
Bake about 15 min
Ok, we’re done! Don’t say I never gave you anything!
These are great for breakfast, snacks, and a light dessert.
Try to resist eating them all at once. You’ll choke.
