Simple Fruit Pastries
DirectionsPreheat oven to 400 degrees.
Carefully unfold pastry onto a cutting board and cut into 5 strips.
Spread the jam on the top of 4 strips and sprinkle the jam with 2 tbsp sugar.
Stack the strips on top of one another and place the one with no jam on top.
Put in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes, until the pastry is firm.
After lining 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper, slice the pastry on the short side into 1/4 in slices.
Use a bread knife and lay the slices 4 in apart on the cookie sheets as you go.
You may want to slice just enough pastry to fit onto the cookie sheet and freeze the rest until you are ready to fill another sheet.
Sprinkle the slices with a little sugar.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes and cool on a rack.
