Monday’s with Mami – Strawberry Apple Puffed Sensation

Posted · 12 Comments

Get ready, this is A Little Bit of Spain in Iowa’s strawberry week. With so many freshly picked strawberries from turtle farm, I did the best I could to eat them fresh and use them up in homemade recipes before freezing what was left. With so many strawberries to use, I decided to make a sweet jelly filled topping for puff pastry! light and flaky sweet sensation! Enjoy!

Strawberry Apple Puffed Sensation


  • 3 small apples sliced (I used organic fuji apples, so sweet!)
  • 1 cup whole strawberries cut into quarters
  • 2 tbls butter or if you like a hint of coconut, coconut oil.
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 recipe puff pastry

For the topping

  1. In a small saucepan add the sliced apples and 2 tbls butter over medium heat. Bring to a sizzle and cover for 10 minutes or until soft. (This will add natural pectin to the sauce creating a light jelly)
  2. Add the quartered strawberries and honey and mash until the strawberries and apples break down and a yummy sauce has been formed. Heat for an additional 5 minutes.

For the dough

  1. Cut off a piece of puff pastry
  2. Roll out your puff pastry to 1/8 or 1/4 of an inch.
  3. Cut out 5 inch circles.

  4. Bake at 425 for 7 minutes.
  5. Top the circles with the strawberry/apple topping
  6. Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until the patries are golden.

    Looks delicious. You've got a lovely contrast of flavours here. The slight acidity of the apples and strawberries, balanced out by the honey! And such a simple recipe too!
