Carré Confiture | Snap a Bite

Upping the golden in that golden brown. That’s right, these are a difficult habit to kick. Eat these only with the utmost of caution. Who can stop eating these when each bite tastes so right, right?

Things start simple enough, with a few sheets of pastry.

Construct pastry dams. Apply apricot jam.
Pray that the dams hold and keep in that deliciousness.

Strap the jam in tight.

For me these are a journey back in time. Running around the playground, going down the slides and endlessly back and forth on the swings. After energy was well spent, on the special days, you could recharge the carré confiture way. A little sunshine captured in pastry.
It’s fall, going on winter, so some rays to go might come in handy. Enjoy!

Carré Confiture

Preparation time: 10 min
Cooking time: 20 min
Serves: 2


 show US units 
4 heaped tablespoon(s) of apricot jam
4 sheet(s) of puff pastry (10x10 cm)


Preheat the oven to 220°C (428°F).
You have two sheets of puff pastry in front of you.
Cut off the borders of one sheet and place them on the sides of other sheet.
Take a fork and prick what's still visible of the bottom puff pastry sheet.
Spread out the apricot jam.
Cut strips from the remaining puff pastry.
Spread the strips from one side of the pastry to the other by stretching them out.
Bake for 20 minutes or untill golden brown.


Even better with home-made apricot jam (but sadly, it's not apricot season right now).
Once out of the oven, you can streak the top with a thin layer of apricot jam for extra taste!
