Four-Ingredient Strawberry Jam Puff Pastry (Plus a Simple Icing Recipe!)

I had the rare opportunity to hostess a Girls’ Night in my home for some of my closest friends recently, and this recipe turned out so wonderfully that I just had to share.  I think these Strawberry Jam Puff Pastries would be just perfect for a morning brunch, or as a sweet treat for any get together.  They out looking beautiful and like you picked them up at a local bakery.   Would you believe they only required only FOUR ingredients???!!!  That’s my kind of baking!

Here is what you will need:

Ingredients:
Puff Pastry
Strawberry Jam
Melted Butter
Sugar

It doesn’t get more simple than that, does it?!

I got my puff pastry out of the freezer about 40 minutes before I needed them.  You want to give it time to thaw before trying to make it do anything!

I lined two trays with parchment paper and preheated my oven to 400 degrees.  Then, I used a knife to cut the puff pastry into 9 squares.  Within each of the squares, I used the tip of the knife to make another small square.

I brushed on melted butter with a pastry brush and quickly sprinkled some sugar on top.  I’m thinking adding a tad bit of cinnamon during this step would be really good too!

Next, I plopped a nice teaspoon of strawberry jam on each of the squares.  I used the flat side of the spoon to help spread it around a bit.

They went in the oven for 12 minutes, or until they started to brown on top.

After letting these pastries cool for a bit, I whipped up a quick icing to top them with.  This is a simple icing my mom has been making for years and is a mixture of confectioner sugar, milk, and a little drop of vanilla.   I don’t have any measurements , but rather just mix until I get a consistency I like. (A little milk does go a long way– start with a little and add slowly!)

I’m sure that this recipe could be adapted for a variety of flavors of jam, apple butter, Nutella.  Yum.  I might have to try them all!
