Fruit Puff Cookies

These delicious fruit puff cookies are inspired by the traditional Jewish pastry, Hamentashen, served on the holiday of Purim.

I’ve made the recipe simpler for an every-day treat using frozen puff pastry as a crust for the fruit-filled cookie. I like this recipe because it’s incredibly simple so it’s something you can do with the kids, which is why my daughter and I have been baking on this rainy day.

You can also make many variations to this simple recipe, including savory options. You can stuff the pastries with cheese and peperoni, bake, and dip these “pizza puffs” in a homemade tomato sauce.

What’s great about these pastries is that everyone can customize their own snack or dessert, so making these can be fun at different kids’ parties when you want a group project that you can also eat.

Ingredients for Fruit Puff Cookies:

  • Box of frozen puff pastries, which you can find in your local grocery store in the frozen isle
  • 3-4 cans of fruit filling, I like apricot, strawberry and poppy seed filling, which can be found in the baking isle of your grocery store
  • 6 egg yolks

Directions for Fruit Puff Cookies:

  • Spread puff pastries on countertop and allow to thaw, about 40 minutes
  • Using a serrated knife, cut pastries into rectangles, about 2 x 3 inches in diameter
  • Spoon a small amount of filling onto one side of each rectangle, leaving a small space near the edge in order to close the pastry
  • With a fingertip, paint a small amount of egg yolk along the edges of the pastry and close by folding in two, taking care to wipe away any filling leakage
  • Bake according to instructions on pastry packaging
  • Allow to cool and enjoy!
