What to do with left over puff pastry ?

When we made pies on our journey through Argentina we cut out round bits and had strips, bits and pieces over from our pie making.  What to do with this pastry asked Paul ?  I left this problem up to him and this was his solution
The process
  • Grab all bits and squish into big ball - needs big strong hands ;-)
  • Roll out thin (takes patience)
  • Cut bits off side to make a rectangle
  • Add left over raisins (that only Sir N knew were in the pantry) and poke them on one side of cut off bits of pastry and fold pastry over to seal.  
  • Place on baking paper lined baking tray.

Spread jam layer across rolled out pastry


Place on baking sheet, Slice, bake at 180'C for 15 min or golden

Ready to eat
Lessons learned:
  • Do not over cook
  • Make sure pastry is well closed over the raisins (if not they will over cook  before the pastry is cooked and be in-eddable)
  • Less is more with the jam
  • Tastes good
What do you do with your left over bits of pastry ?
