Making your own puff pastry dough is not Singlemade’s thing. It takes a lot of work, concentration and just the right kind of butter… In other words, it’s something for professional bakers or the advanced amateur-patissier.
Because we like things quick and easy, ready-made puff pastry is an ideal solution. You can find high quality and inexpensive dough almost anywhere.
You can take puff pastry in all directions: savoury, sweet, dinner or lunch, appetizer or dessert. We’ll spoil ourselves with this one: jam pastries. Fit for a luxurious Sunday breakfast or just for afternoon tea!

The testers were all eager to give this one a go!
Jomme was the first to give me feedback. He used a pretty runny jam, so the filling ran out a bit. His tip: Use a less runny jam. 🙂
He used a combi-oven. He baked the pastries on the baking paper on the glass tray at the bottom. The tops were well done, but the undersides were undercooked.
Tip: You should bake puff pastry on a (metal) tray, as it’s a better conductor than glass. Nevertheless, they all tasted great!
Stiene couldn’t find a square piece of pastry dough, so she made some beautiful round pastries. She even went out of her way to get some coarse sugar. She loved how easy they were to make!
Christel used a round piece of dough as well, causing her pastries to be shaped a bit oddly. She ate them while ironing and found the pastries to be the perfect power food, as well as a rewarding treat. 🙂 In other words: approved!
Christel’s tip: If your jam is too solid, spread it a bit over the dough.
