Want to enjoy some fresh-from-the-oven pastries without all the fuss? Grab some Le Marquis puff pastry from our Grab N Go freezer, and make your own at home!
All you need is:
a roll of their puff pastry - pull it from the freezer the day before and let it thaw in the fridge.
some type of filling. You can use jam, or pie filling, or fresh fruit.
optional: egg wash & cane sugar for a golden crusty top
Preheat oven to 350F
Open the thawed puff pastry, and gently unroll. Grab a rolling pin and roll the puff pastry between 2 sheets of parchment paper (or it can get sticky. If you find it getting really sticky, put it back in the fridge for a bit). We roll it only a bit thinner, maybe an extra couple of inches, so we can then cut the puff pastry into 6 squares.
Add your filling: add 1-2 tbsp of filling into the centre of each pastry square.
Gently fold the square of pastry across to make a triangle and press the edges together. We then grab a fork and press the fork along the edges for extra seal, and to make it look pretty.
Cut vent holes in the top with a knife - this lets steam out while they bake.
Optional: beat an egg in a small bowl using a fork, and use a pastry brush to brush the tops of your turnovers with eggwash, then sprinkle with cane sugar - this will help add that classic golden crust when they bake.
Bake for 25-35 minutes until golden brown and flakey. If they start to get too dark, but aren't done yet, you can cover with foil, or turn down the temperature. The longer you bake them, the flakier the puff pastry layers will be.
Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, then ENJOY!
You can save leftovers in the fridge for a few days, or freeze them to enjoy later.
