Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line heavy large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Roll out pastry on floured surface to 15x12-inch rectangle.
  4. Cut crosswise into three 12x5-inch strips.
  5. Transfer 2 pastry strips to prepared sheet, spacing evenly (freeze third strip for another use).
  6. Pierce pastry all over with fork; freeze 10 minutes.
  7. Bake pastry strips until golden and puffed, about 15 minutes.
  8. Transfer baking sheet to rack; cool pastry.

  10. Combine 2 teaspoons water and espresso powder in medium bowl; stir to dissolve.
  11. Mix in enough powdered sugar by tablespoonfuls to form thick spreadable icing.

  15. Pour 1/2 cup cream into large bowl.
  16. Add 1 tablespoon sugar, vanilla and gelatin mixture and beat to stiff peaks.
  17. Place second pastry strip on work surface, trimmed side up; spread jam over.
