Crispy, Flavourful and Light, these Strawberry Pop-Puff Tarts, are dainty little sweet treats to end a lovely meal.
So with little time, on my hands during Ramadaan, This is one Sweet Treat I took time out to make. My Habibi, Imran, does love a sweet nibble after Late night prayers (Taraweeh), and I have been making this type of pastry for years, but shaped differently, This One here, I had to try, inspired after watching a video, I did not follow it as it was, but created a version that we would enjoy. And ENJOY we did.
Here is my write up of How To Make these Sweet Puffy treats, and you can also view the little video below I created with the steps I took to make them. Having ready Cut Square Pastry available on the market these days, such treats are becoming ever so easier to whip up.
Do Give this one a try, and I look forward to your feedback,

~ Cut Ready Rolled Puff Pastry into Squares

~ Brush on an Egg Wash on the edges of this, and Place onto another Whole Square Pastry cut out.
~ Fill in a little Strawberry Jam, warmed in the microwave, into the cut out hole of the top pastry
~ Seal edges with a fork and Egg Wash tops of pastry
~ Cut off tops of a strawberry and place the strawberry cut side down into the jam centre.
~ Bake in moderate oven until golden in colour.
~ Jam will ooze out while baking, don’t stress, simply top up the centre with warmed jam once pastry is out of the oven.
~ Cool well, and serve with a dusting of Icing Sugar.
NOTES BY FOODEVA MARSAY
* ADD THE STRAWBERRY JAM TO SMOOTH CREAM CHEESE, BEFORE FILLING INTO PASTRY AND TOPPING WITH THE CUT STRAWBERRY.
* TRY A DIFFERENT COMBINATION OF JAM(LIKE AN APRICOT JAM, AND TOP WITH THE MATCHING FRUIT PIECE OF AN APRICOT.
* THIS IDEA CAN BE MADE USING A SWEET SHORTCRUST PASTRY AS WELL.
* Kindly share my recipes as posted here, Shukran/Thank You
