Copycat Flaky

Flaky, sweet puff pastry filled with your favorite jam and a cream filling? Sign me up! These copycat flaky pastries taste even better than the store-bought ones. They are so easy to make, you will wonder why you haven’t made them before. You can use any jam as long as it is a smoother texture (the store-bought ones use a strawberry).

1 sheet puff pastry*
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup 35% cream
2 tablespoons icing sugar
1 package Whip It stabilizer
1 package vanilla sugar
1 cup jam filling of choice
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 400°F. Unroll the puff pastry (*use a puff pastry that comes already rolled out into a sheet) and cut into 6 or 8 equal squares. Place the squares on a cookie sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Fork the squares to prevent them from rising up too much. Brush the tops with the beaten egg. Bake the squares for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown.

In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and the cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of the squares while warm. Allow the squares to cool completely before filling.

Prepare the whipped filling by beating the cream until it forms stiff peaks. Add the icing sugar, Whip It, and vanilla sugar. Beat until well combined. Transfer the cream into a piping bag. In a separate piping bag add the jam of choice. When you are ready to fill the puff pastry, cut off 1/4” of the tip.

When the puff pastry squares are cool, use a butter knife to create a hole in the side of the square. Push in the tip of the piping bag and fill halfway with the jam. Next, add the whipping cream filling and continue to fill until it starts to come out of the hole.

Makes 6 large or 8 small flaky pastries.
