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.
- 3 bananas, peeled and sliced thinly
- 1⁄4 cup maple syrup
- 1 (2 sheet) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons milk
- Preheat oven to 400°F with oven rack in center position.
- Combine bananas with syrup, mashing the bananas slightly.
- Lay flat 1 sheet of puff pastry and cut in 1/2 lengthwise.
- With rolling pin, roll out each 1/2 sheet into 15x5-inch rectangle.
- Cut each rectangle crosswise into thirds, forming 6 squares total.
- Distribute banana mixture onto center of each square, topping with banana slices, as desired.
- Fold corners of pastry into the center and pinch ends together, twisting to seal.
- Repeat with remaining sheet of puff pastry and remaining banana mixture.
- Arrange pastries on cookie sheet.
- Brush pastries with milk and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
- Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.
- Serve warm.
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.
