There are very few pies that I would say I don’t like. There is something about the contrast of the crust and the filling that I love, especially if it is warm. When I first saw these cherry blossoms at Get Off Your Butt and Bake, I wondered if pie could get any easier. With so few ingredients and such a quick assembly this seems like it is possibly the best way to get your pie fix without going to a restaurant. (To give you an idea of how fast they come together…. I started my oven and then started the process. When my oven beeped to tell me that it was ready, I was already half way through the egg wash step!).
I just used cherry pie filling from a can but if you are more ambitious, a homemade cherry pie filling would make it even more incredible. My boys and I thought cherry was wonderful but this is definitely something I could see with apples and cinnamon on the inside! My mouth waters just thinking about it…
Puff Pastry Cherry Blossoms
- PUFF PASTRY SHEETS
- CHERRY PIE FILLING
- 1 EGG, beaten
- 1 cup POWDERED SUGAR
- 1 teaspoon VANILLA
- 1 1/2 MILK
For the pastries
For the glaze
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Unfold the puff pastry sheets and cut them into 9 squares. In each square place one tablespoon of cherry pie filling (about 2 cherries). Bring all of the corners to the center. You will now have four 'vents', gently press to close two of the 'vents', leave the other two open. Brush each with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile mix the glaze ingredients until smooth. Remove cherry blossoms from the oven and drizzle glaze on them while still warm. ENJOY!!!!

Did you make this recipe just for me? I LOVE cherry pie, but making pie crust is not my thing…this sounds delicious and easy! Perfect!!
I saw this on the linky thing and I had to see how you made them. How easy and gorgeous are these?? Yummy too.
