  • Preheat the oven to 355°F (180°C).
  • Add a heaping tablespoon of almond cream to the center of each pastry square, fold it to the center, place it in a ring, and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until golden. Remove the pastries from the oven and let them cool. Fill each pastry with the cream, sprinkle with powdered sugar, and add cherries.

Can I use frozen cherries?

Yes, you can use frozen cherries in the recipe. Thaw and drain them before adding to the pastry squares. Frozen cherries work well and retain their delicious flavor, making them a convenient option for making cherry puff pastry any time of the year.

Substitutes for almond cream

Certainly! If you have dietary preferences or nut allergies, you can easily substitute almond cream in the cherry puff pastry recipe. Try using vanilla cream, chocolate ganache, or even a custard filling for a delightful twist.

How to freeze cherry puff pastry

If you have leftover pastries or want to prepare them ahead of time, freezing is a convenient option. Ensure the pastries are fully cooled before placing them in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag. Seal tightly to prevent freezer burn. When you’re ready to enjoy them, simply thaw the pastries at room temperature or in the refrigerator, and reheat in the oven for a few minutes for that freshly baked taste.

Can I use different types of cherries?

Yes, you can use various types of cherries for the filling, such as sweet cherries, sour cherries, or a combination of both. Sweet cherries will provide a milder and sweeter flavor, while sour cherries will add more tartness to the pastry. You can adjust the sugar in the filling based on the sweetness of the cherries you use and your personal preference.

Can I make Cherry Puff Pastry in advance?

Yes, you can prepare the cherry puff pastry in advance. You can assemble the pastries and freeze them before baking. When you’re ready to enjoy them, simply bake the frozen pastries according to the recipe instructions. This is a great option if you want to have a quick dessert ready to go whenever you need it.
