Strawberry Jam Puffs Recipe



frozen puff pastry, in this case leftovers

1 egg, beaten

strawberry jam or any other fruit jam


How to make strawberry jam puffs

First, make sure the pastry is completely thawed at room temperature.


Preheat oven to 400°F.


On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry to just under ¼ inch thick. Using a pastry cutter of about ½ inch in diameter, cut the pastry into rounds. Mark the center with a smaller cutter but do not cut through.


Next, place cut-out pastry on a lined baking tray and brush with beaten egg. Bake for 10 minutes or until the pastry puffs are well risen and golden.


Remove to cool on a wire rack.


Slightly depress the puffs to make a well in the center and fill it with a teaspoonful of strawberry jam. Serve warm.
