Puff Pastry Twists Amongst Tart Ruddy Preserves

Ya know what variety of days I love?

Weekend days such every bit this.  Lazy, chilly, no-where-to-go days.

For me, at that topographic point is null to a greater extent than lovely than spending a day at domicile amongst my family. 

We slumber inwards a bit.  We fix a large breakfast.  We oftentimes remain inwards our jammies as well as slippers agency past times noon.  We picket movies as well as play games.

And, sometimes nap.  (Did I advert how much I dear the weekends?)

There's commonly a large pot of something simmering away on the stove ... or something cooking inwards the dull cooker as well as filling the solid amongst insane smells of deliciousness.

Oh, as well as it's often a twenty-four hr menstruation that nosotros pass fourth dimension inwards the kitchen together (which I adore).

My girls as well as I were inspired to exercise something amongst the puff pastry nosotros had inwards the freezer.  (They particularly dear helping me amongst recipes that they know will end upward on my spider web log ... makes them experience a business office of what I do!)

Puff pastry is super elementary to function with.  Don't live on afraid of it.  And, although nosotros made these today but to munch on hither at domicile for ourselves, these would actually wow at a party! 

We used Smucker's Orchard's Finest Michigan Red Tart Cherry Preserves (any preserve/jam would work).  I discovered this jam a few weeks agone as well as oh, baby, this materials is divine!  I could consume it past times the spoonful!

Puff Pastry Twists amongst Tart Cherry Preserves


1 puff pastry dough, thawed (but all the same cold)
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
1/2 - 3/4 cup preserves
1 1/2 tablespoons brownish sugar


Lay out the canvas of puff pastry on a floured surface.  Roll out dough into a nine x xiii rectangle.

Cut dough inwards one-half betwixt the 2 master seams using a pizza cutter or knife.

Beat together the egg as well as H2O to shape an egg wash.  Brush 1 of the dough pieces amongst the egg.  On the other dough piece, spread the jam evenly across the dough leaving room at the edges.  I went a piffling also to a greater extent than or less the edges as well as some leaked out, as well as hence but pretend that the photograph below shows the right way.  (wink!)  Sprinkle on one tablespoon of the brownish sugar.

Next, house the other dough slice (egg-side down) on locomote past times of the jam side.  Press gently together (not also difficult or the filling volition all leak out) as well as seal edges a fleck amongst your fingers.  (Yes, my preserves leaked a fleck ... run across confession inwards a higher house almost spreading jam also to a greater extent than or less the edges!)  Cut into strips amongst a pizza cutter (you should teach seven - nine strips).

Line a baking canvas amongst parchment paper.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Working 1 at a time, gently twist each strip as well as lay on baking canvas making certain to press downwards the ends as well as hence that they don’t curl. When all of the strips accept been twisted as well as placed on the baking sheet, lightly brush each twist amongst a piffling to a greater extent than egg launder as well as sprinkle amongst the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of brownish sugar.

Bake on middle rack for eleven - xiii minutes or until twists are lightly browned.

(Yes, they may ooze a fleck piece baking, but that's okay!)

Remove from pan as well as permit to cool a fleck on a cooling rack.  These are best served the same day, but tin live on stored inwards an air-tight container for upward to 3 days.
