Puff Pastries with Lemon Glaze From Nami at JustOneCookbook.com!

Difficulty: Easy

Cooking Time: <60 minutes

Makes: About 12 mini fruit puff pastries

Lemon glaze

  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • ½ cup powdered sugar

Filling

  • Your choice of fruits – I used strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries
  • Granulated sugar (optional)
  • 1 pkg (17.3 ounces) Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed according to the package instruction (can substitute with other brands as well)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. water

 In a small bowl, combine ingredients for Lemon Glaze and whisk together. The consistency should be slightly thick but runny. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Puff Pastries with Lemon Glaze While you are waiting for the pastry sheet to be thawed, wash fruits and drain well. Chop into small pieces if necessary.

Puff Pastries with Lemon Glaze  After 2 pastry sheets are thawed, unfold them on a lightly floured surface.  Using a round cookie cutter, cut the pastry sheet into 9 same sized circles per sheet. Roll up the scrapes into a ball and re-roll them and cut into circles. I was able to make 24 circles with the 2 sheets.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl.

Place half of the pastry circles (12 circles for me) onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Then put a small amount of fruits of your choice in the center. You can sprinkle a little bit of sugar if you like. I made half with sugar and half without sugar (fruits were pretty sweet already).

After you put all the fruits, brush the edges of the pastry circles with the egg wash using a pastry brush.

 Put remaining pastry circles on top of the filling.

Press the edges of circles firmly to seal with a fork.

Using a kitchen knife, make 2 small slits on top of the pastry and brush the top of pastries with the egg wash using a pastry brush. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are nice golden brown on the top. Remove from the oven and let the pastries cool slightly.

Drizzle with lemon glaze on top.

Enjoy!
