Puff pastry waffles filled with fruit jam

How about puff pastry waffles!??!?!
Very simple dessert creations made out of puff pastry are always a success, easy to prepare and oh so tasty! And if you come to think of it, this recipe is such a cheap dessert. The only thing you'll need is a waffle iron.

I have never imagined it to be such a success. The pastry doesn't stick to the iron nor does the jam interfere with the crispiness of the pastry.
After trying this, I have to admit that puff pastry baked in a waffle iron is so much more tasty than baked in the oven. It is less dry and you can control better the cooking time.
Warm pastry, with warm fruit jam and some icing powder on top is just divine. It melts in your mouth. Add some whipped cream and some vanilla ice cream to it and you have just created a full on girls' dessert! ;-)

Of course, this could also be turned into a savoury snack. You can go crazy with this... whatever you like, you can just add it in the middle, in small quantities, and surprise your family members or guests with little warm treats or appetizers.






Puff pastry waffles filled with fruit jam
Makes around 7 waffles

Ingredients:
1 roll of puff pastry (± 230gr)
3 1/2 tsp fruit jam of your choice
1 egg yolk
icing powder, for decoration

1. Preheat waffle iron
2. Roll out puff pastry and cut out 14 circles, around 6 to 7cm each, (± 2,5inch), by using a glass
3. Two pastry circles per waffle are needed; place 1/2 tsp of fruit jam in the middle of one pastry circle
4. Beat the egg yolk and spread it on the border of the pastry circle with the jam on
5. Close the 'waffle to be' with 2nd pastry circle on top and press well on the edge, close the edge by using a fork
6. Place prepared pastry circles in the waffle iron, two at a time, (that is if your waffle iron can make 2 waffles at the same time) and bake them 6 to 8min. or until golden brown.
Once they are baked, let them cool for 5min., sprinkle with icing powder and serve warm. Enjoy!

Tip:  - Normal puff pastry, store-bought, comes in a circled shape but you also have rectangle shapes. This one would have been better as you could divide the pastry equally in squares or rectangles so that there would be no waste.
        - I have also baked the leftovers, sprinkled with icing powder and served with some fresh fruit.

  8. Wow...I so love your brilliance with puff-pastry sheets! Is there any chance this could be done with a stove-top pizzelle/brigadini iron?! Thank you for sharing your creativity!

    1. Hi Donna, I haven't tried it with a stove-top pizzelle but I guess it would work. If you do try it, please let me know how it turns out.

    2. I am going to try the pasty in my electric pizzelle to make cannoli pasty. Will see if i'm able to roll them when they are still warm.

  9. How about a panini grill, do you think it would work the same way? I have a double sided grill, professional, any idea how hot a waffle iron gets to set the grill at?

    1. It will definitely work because my waffle iron is only very cheap and does not get so hot either but did the trick. Keep me posted how it turned out, if you would ever try it.

  11. i don't know what i did or didn't do that everyone else didn't or did do but these were totally horrible to make - i tried rolling a bit, rolling a lot, a bit of egg, lots of egg, little jelly, the right amount of jelly, forking, pinching and forking. everything led to the jam coming out the seam and making a burning mess on my waffle iron plates.
