There’s two camps to breakfast pastries, those who love pop tarts and those who love toaster strudels. One is a dense pie-like crust with frosting while the other is of a flaky texture with an icing drizzle. So why can’t a girl have both, at the same time? Why do I have to choose? I made Raspberry Puff Tarts.
With Mother’s Day fast approaching, I am searching for a recipe that is easy for the family to make, to serve Mom breakfast in bed.
I was also asked to create a recipe using Bonne Maman Raspberry Preserves so I found this to be the perfect opportunity to create my Puff Tarts. This particular project was exciting for me as I have been a long time fan of Bonne Maman products. First of all, their jellies and preserves are made in France without high fructose corn syrup, no artificial coloring and no preservatives.
My jar of raspberry preserves contained only ingredients I can pronounce including raspberries, sugar, cane sugar, and lemon juice.
This was my first time working with puff pastry and I am surprised how easy it was to work with. There was no need to be rolling out dough or pie crust, I simply cut the thawed dough into the size I wanted my puff tarts to be and added the filling. I used almond butter along with my Bonne Maman Raspberry Preserves (mixed with a little cornstarch to thicken it slightly.)
I then added another puff pastry on top of my fillings and used an egg mixed with water to create the “glue” to hold the tart together. Fifteen minutes in the oven, add some icing and my puff tarts are ready to go.
My icing is nothing more than a mix of a little butter, powdered sugar, heavy whipping cream and some beet juice for color. Breakfast has been served. I present to you Raspberry Puff Tarts.
