Raspberry Puffs…

...or another thing to do with left over puff pastry.

Raspberry Puffs

Having bought some ready made puff pastry for the Tarte Tartin I had a bit left over in the fridge to use. These really are very simple:

Take the pastry and cut it into approximately 2 inch squares. Liberally make holes in the centre with a fork so that the centre doesn’t rise. Leave about a 1cm margin around the edge to rise.

In the centre put some raspberry jam and on top of that place some raspberries. 

Then pop in the oven for 10-15 mins at 220C. Only having 4 in the oven these cooked a bit too quickly and are just starting to catch. Should have got them out a couple of minutes earlier!! Oh well…

Also, as puff begins with P I’ll enter them for Alphabakes hosted by Caroline of Caroline makes and Ros from The more than occasional baker.


I was going to enter a polenta cake but that turned out to be an epic fail (or didn’t turn out as the case may be…). Still, might have another crack at that later in the week.


  1. These look delicious! I love puff pastry especially with fruit. Shame about the polenta cake. Thanks for entering AlphaBakes.

    1. Thanks. The bits of the polenta cake taste lovely. Unfortunately, half of it is stuck to the tin...

  2. Definitely a good way to use up leftover pastry! Thanks for sending it into Alphabakes :-)
