- Cut puff pastry along fold lines and then in half, making 6 rectangular pieces.
- Coat edges of one section of pastry with egg wash (egg and milk whisked).
- Place desired amount of filling (we used equal parts of each jam) in the center and spread, leaving room on the edges.
- Then place a second piece of puff pastry on top, Push the edges of the two pastry pieces together with your fingers and then press with a fork to seal.
- Bake on wax paper at 190°C (375°F) for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and puffy.
- For icing, mix all ingredients together. Add additional milk or sugar to achieve desired consistency. Apply to slightly cooked pastries.
