                                                            Jam Puffs

Right, your craving something sweet or you have people coming over for dinner and you need an easy dessert, well look no further. These jam puffs are a pinch to make and only four ingredients are needed.
Most people have jam and milk in the fridge so all you'll need is a packet puff pastry and some flaked almonds ( optional).

What you'll need:
1 packet of puff pastry
A small jar of your favourite jam, I like strawberry. You could also use Nutella:)
1/4 cup milk or 1 beaten egg
Hand full of flaked almonds(optional)

First defrost the pastry then pop the oven on at 180 degrees fan forced. Cut the pastry in half and then half again across ways.

Next  place a tablespoon of jam in the middle of each one then fold one corner over in half.
After folding over press the sides down hard with you index finger or thumb. 

Brush each triangle with milk or beaten egg. This gives them a lovely golden colour as well as a little shine. Sprinkle flaked almonds on top if you like.


Bake for 20 minutes and take a peek, if they are puffed up and golden they are ready, if not bake for longer.

Here I added melted Toblerone mmm. I'd strongly suggest serving these with thickend cream, I always do.
