Have you ever come across an easier recipe? These jam turnovers are made from squares of puff pastry and your favourite jam. You can sprinkle over a little raw sugar, or do what I did and dust with icing sugar.

Serve with cream, custard or ice-cream. They are delicious on their own (hot or cold) too!

Serves 6


  • 320g puff-pastry sheets
  • 2 tbsp jam (apricot, raspberry, and strawberry work well. I used cherry)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Icing sugar, for dusting
  • Ice-cream, cream or custard, to serve


  1. Heat oven to 200C.
  2. Unravel puff-pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Cut pastry into six squares.
  3. Spoon jam into centre of each pastry square.
  4. Seal edges by pressing down with a fork and brush with egg.
  5. Lay out on a lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool before dusting with icing sugar. Then serve with ice-cream, cream or custard.
