Ingredients

  • 1 package puff pastry 2 sheets
  • 9 tbsp jam use my recipe for cardamom quince jam
  • 1 egg scrambled with 1 tbsp of water

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400F.
  • Unfold your pastry sheets. Cut each sheet into 9 squares.
  • Spoon 1 tbsp of jam onto half of the squares. Cover each of these squares with one of your non-jammed squares. Pinch the sides. Repeat for the other 8 jam squares.
  • Take a jam-filled squares and place it in your palm. Pinch together the 4 corners to create a dough ball, filled with jam. Place pinched side down on a cutting board. Repeat for the other 8 squares.
  • Cut 8 petals in each pastry ball. I like to cut 4 first, 90 degrees apart (keeping the center in tact of course) and then the other 4 cuts are easy to cut evenly.
  • Take two adjacent petals and twist them away from each other...the right petal will twist clockwise and the left counterclockwise. Continue for the other 3 pairs of petals. Transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat for the other 8 flowers. 6 max per baking sheet.
  • Brush with egg wash. 
  • Bake 18-20 minutes until golden brown rotating the baking sheet half way through.
