I don’t use a lot of prepared foods. I like to make most things from scratch. But one exception to that rule at our house is puff pastry. I have made it from scratch and it is anything but simple! It took 2 days and a whole lot of butter. Buying it is a whole lot easier. šŸ˜‰ My favorite brand is from President’s Choice but there are other brands out there. It is so easy to make anĀ appetizer or entreeĀ or this dessert!

You can use any fresh fruit really. I used cherries cause that’s what we had around the house that day.

Put an egg into a little bowl and mix it up with a fork. Then use a pastry brush to brush the egg wash over each one and sprinkle with a little bit of sugar.

Then pop them into a preheat 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until they are golden brown.Ā That’s it. I like them warm with ice cream.
