Ingredients

  • 12 x12 inch puff pastry sheet (9 oz)
  • 12 plums
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp almond flakes
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 egg beaten (for egg wash)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  • Filling: wash, pat dry and split plums in half. Remove the pit. Cut each half in half again.
  • Add plum quarters to a bowl, sprinkle with sugar and cornstarch. Add cinnamon if you like.
  • Mix everything gently.
    Let sit for about 5 minutes.
  • Roll puff pastry dough on a piece of parchment paper.
    If you’ve got a rectangular shape pastry cut of the edges, giving it a round shape.
  • Spread plum filling evenly in the center, leaving about 2 inch space around the dough edges.
    Make sure all plums are placed cut side up.
  • Fold the edges into the filling. You should have 5-6 folds.
    Brush the edges with egg wash (egg beaten with a bit of water).
  • Bake in the preheated to 375F oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
