I love cooking and baking for celebrations around the year, any excuse to bring more fun to the table and I’m there! So with Valentine’s Day in a weeks time, I have been practicing making some easy sweet puff pastry recipes to dish out to all the family. They are that easy I have baked a batch for our Scout group for their camp weekend.
I will start off by saying that as a busy Mum of 4, I don’t have the time or the inclination to make my own pastry. I have also made a few different types of sweet puff pastry recipe hearts and these so far are our favourite. They also happen to be the easiest so that is a win for limiting my time in the kitchen. One thing I should state is that you need a little bit of time to finish a batch as they do need some chilling time in the preparation of the pastry palmier hearts but you can go away and leave them to do their thing before baking, meaning you can get some Jobs done or chill out whilst they’re chilling!
Preparation – 60 mins
Cook Time 18-20 Minutes
I Puff Pastry Sheet ready per packet instructions
At least 5 Tbsp of Raspberry Jam
Optional Icing Sugar for dusting
You can make different flavour sweet puff pastry recipe hearts filled with other flavours such as chocolate spread, other fruit jams, lemon curd or cinnamon sugar hearts.
I find shaping the cut slices a little, makes for better hearts. When raw they look a little rustic in shape, don’t be put off as once cooked they spread into a good heart shape.
