Easy Danish Pastry - Pineapple Jam & Coconut

Not too long after I've made the Easy Danish Lemon Curd Puff Pastry, realised that I've some leftover store bought pineapple jam {for making pineapple tarts} (about 150g) hidden inside the freezer. With such small amount, it would definitely be nice to make some warm dainty Danish pastries for our after meal dessert. Hee ... hee ... using ready frozen puff pastry ! Pineapple + coconut sounds tropical ! So, here's the quick & easy way to make some 'tropical' Danish pastries ... Somehow this post has been 'sleeping' the longest time till the ingredient 'coconut' woke it up ... hee .. hee !

Easy Danish Pastry - Pineapple Jam & Coconut
Ingredients :
1 sheet ready frozen puff pastry
150g Pineapple Jam
4 - 5 tablespoons of unsweetened dessicated coconut
Half an egg - beaten for egg wash

Method :
1. Preheat oven to 180°C.  Prepare a baking sheet with greased parchment paper.

2. Sprinkle some flour on the work surface. Place the pastry sheet on the work surface.

3. Using a pizza cutter, cut the puff pastry sheet into 4 strips, then horizontally cut 2 lines to make 12 rectangular sizes.

4. Poke holes at the base using a fork.

5. Divide the pineapple jam about 10g - 12g. Shape it like a log and place on the puff pastry.

6. Sprinkle about half teaspoon of dessicated coconut.

7. Fold both the ends, form like a small parcel. Seam side down. Crimp the edges with a fork or leave them "open".

8. Poke holes on the surface using a fork.

9. Egg wash and sprinkle some dessicated coconut.

10. Place the pastries onto the baking sheet.

11. Bake for about 18 - 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.

*Note that I made some other shapes. Feel free to cut and shape the pastry dough into any shapes & sizes you like.

Freshly baked ! They are best eaten warm on the day of baking. Time for some flaky dainty sweet Danish pastries! My big kids liked it while I find them rather too sweet. Anyway, ain't dessert suppose to be sweet ? So I'm enjoying these sweet treats with a cup of green tea ^-^!

Enjoy !
