Christmas Prune Pastry

Another thing to bake that brings Christmas to our home, are these Christmas Prune Pastries. I tend to call them “Christmas Stars” in English as they’re star-shaped danishes made with puff pastry and filled with plum/prune jam. They’re traditionally eaten around Christmas in Finland, but as they’re so super quick and easy to make everywhere, I thought I’d share the recipe with you!

christmas pastryIngredients:
Ready made pastry/filo dough
Prunes / dried plums (about 2 mug fulls)
Water (about one cup)
Sugar
1 Egg

How to:
1. Cook the prunes in some water on the stove for a few minutes and then blend or mash them with a fork into a jam. Add sugar.
2. Roll out the dough and cut it into squares.
3. Cut from the corners to the middle, but not quite to the middle (see the video for better instructions!
4. Place a big teaspoon full of jam into the middle of each pastry.
5. Fold every other corner to the middle and push them together. You might want to use some water to make the corners stick.
6. Whisk the egg in a mug and then brush the dough with the egg. Vegans can use soy milk.

Place into the oven at 225°C for about 15 minutes, until the stars start getting brownish.
Garnish with powdered sugar and serve warm!

These pastries, your traditional christmas bread, banana bread… But Im so busy because I have one last exam tomorrow! I find it horrible to have exams this close to christmas.. :( I have zero motivation. But therefore I am suuper motivated to go home and start baking! <3
