  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 (14-ounce) package frozen puff pastry dough, thawed but still cold
  • 1/2 cup fruit compote
  • All-purpose flour, for rolling
ACTIVE TIME: 25 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 50 minutes
Yield: 12 Pies


  • Heat oven to 375ºF. Line a half-sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water. Set aside.
  • Place the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface and roll to 1/8-inch thick. Cut 12 (3 3/4- inch) circles from the puff pastry. If the dough begins to stick, lightly dust with flour.
  • Place 2 teaspoons of the fruit compote onto the middle of each circle. Lightly brush the edges with the egg wash and fold the pastry over so that the edges meet. Using a fork, press the edges together to seal. Brush the tops of the pies with the egg wash and poke several holes in the top of the pies for steam to escape.
  • Place the pies 1-inch apart on the prepared half-sheet pan and bake until golden brown, approximately 25 minutes.
