Ingredients

  • 1 pkg Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets (1 pkg = 17.3 oz) (thawed according to the package instruction)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp water

Lemon glaze:

  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar/powder sugar

Filling:

  • Strawberries (Your choice of fruits, raspberries, and blueberries)
  • sugar (optional)

Instructions

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

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

  3. After 2 pastry sheets are thawed, unfold them on a lightly floured surface. Using a round cookie cutter, cut the pastry sheet into 9 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.

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

  5. 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).

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

  7. Put remaining pastry circles on top of the filling.

  8. Press the edges of circles firmly to seal with a fork.
  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Drizzle the lemon glaze on tops. I think I made it too runny…it should have been thicker, right? Sorry this is my first time making icing!
