Banana Purse in Puff Pastry

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Ducky

This is a great, fast, easy and kid-friendly dessert or snack. DS just loved this and couldn't get enough. I originally saw this on FoodTV on the Semi-Homemade Cooking show. I've also made these with the puff pastry shells and it works just fine.

I recently make this recipe and added 2 T dark rum with the mable syrup. I also found that there is only enough banana mixture for 6 purses, not 12. If you divide the amount between 12, there isn't nearly enough if each serving. So if you make 12, just double the amount of filling.
