DIRECTIONS

  • Cut your sheet of puff pastry into squares. I cut down the 3 vertical marks that are previously there. I was left with 3 strips. I cut each strip into 3 squares. They are not perfectly square, but that's o.k! You can make yours larger if you like. Take one of your squares and place 1 tablespoon of filling in the center. Don't use more than that, or you will have a mess.
  • Grab two opposite corners and pull up to center and pinch together.
  • Do the same with the other corners. Now, pinch closed two seams and leave two open.
  • Lay your cherry blossoms on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • If you don't have parchment paper, grease your pan lightly.
  • Brush with egg wash.
  • Sprinkle sugar over pastry.
  • Bake at 375 degrees until very golden.
  • 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Don't worry if a bit of your filling runs out.
  • You can take a knife and push it right back inches.
  • Prepare the glaze while the blossoms are baking . . .Mix confectioners sugar, milk and vanilla.
  • Make the glaze the consistency you like.
  • Once the blossoms have finished baking, glaze them while still warm.
