12 Weeks of Cookies - Puff Pastry Bites

So these did not turn exactly how I had planned but they are still delicious. Somehow, the puff pastry did not get my memo that they were supposed to be little pinwheel pastries and decided to unravel in the oven. So I decided to improvise and drizzle some melted chocolate on top to make them more festive. Melted chocolate makes everything better.

They are super easy to make and absolutely beautiful to put on your holiday tray. I used store bought puff pastry, jam, and melted chocolate to make these. I love making goodies like this!

  • A box of Puff Pastry
  • Jam of your choice (I used Strawberry)
  • Chocolate Chips, melted

  • Thaw the puff pastry according to the directions.
  • Roll out the puff pastry to your desired thickness. I rolled them out to about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Using a square cookie cutter, cut the pastry into squares.
  • Put a small amount of jam in the center of the pastry square and fold each edge up to the middle. Make sure to pinch the dough closed or the dough will open up on you when they are in the oven.
  • Bake in an 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let cool and then drizzle melted chocolate on top of each puff pastry.
  • Enjoy!
