Heart Shaped Puff Pastry Pockets

Posted on February 24, 2014
Hi Everyone! I wanted to share these little heart treats with you today, that I shared on Or So She Says, where I’m a monthly contributor, a couple of weeks ago! They are such a quick and easy thing to whip up for breakfast in the morning or to have with your tea or coffee as an afternoon pick-me-up! They only take about 30 minutes to make from start to finish, and the best part is that you can fill them with whatever you like! I did mine with a cherry filling, but you could use apples, peaches, any kind of preserves, Nutella, chocolate, or anything else you can think of! All you need are a couple of ingredients, and you have a delicious treat to satisfy your sweet tooth!

HEART SHAPED PUFF PASTRY POCKETS
*Makes 6*
YOU WILL NEED
1 sheet puff pastry
1 egg
1 tbs water
Filling of your choice
 /
DIRECTIONS
.
1. To make these, first thaw out your puff pastry. Once that’s ready to be used, roll it out into a 12×12 inch square on a floured surface. You can make these little pockets into whatever shape you want, but I made these into little hearts so I used a heart shaped cookie cutter and cut out my shapes (I got about 12 hearts out of the single sheet of puff pastry, which made 6 heart pockets). Preheat your oven to 400 deg F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
 .
2. Next, whisk together the egg and the water to make your egg wash. Add about 1/2 tbs of filling (or as much as you can squeeze in!!) into the middle of half of the puff pastry hearts. Then, brush their edges with the egg wash, and top them with the second heart piece. Secure the edges using a fork, then brush the tops with the egg wash and cut a slit in the top with a knife, so that air can escape while they bake (you can also sprinkle them with sugar for added sweetness). Transfer them onto your baking sheets lined with parchment paper and bake for 10 – 15 minutes, or until the tops are beautifully golden brown. Let cool for a couple of minutes, then dust with confectioners’ sugar and eat!!
