Strawberry Superstars

Strawberry Superstars

Well, hello there.  How are you?  I am pleased to inform you all that we are all moved in and settled in our new place.  I was thinking that we would do a little video to show you where we are now but that is something we are still discussing, we’ll keep you posted.

I do have other news that I will be sharing with you in a few days once I know exactly what is going to transpire.  I am very very excited about it and I think you’ll really enjoy it as well 🙂

Now, on with the food!!  I have been working with a lot of puff pastry lately.  I think it is partly because I have been a little lazy as of late.   There is nothing wrong with being a little lazy as long as you are a lot creative, what do you think?  These Strawberry Superstars are SO easy to make.  They are really fun to make and you can change the filling to whatever your heart desires.  I made a strawberry filling which was absolutely delicious.  If you are looking for something to have for brunch on Sunday these stars will surely go over well.

Strawberry Superstars

Ingredients

     1 package (17.3 ounces) Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed according to package directions
1 egg, beaten
Strawberry Filling Recipe below

To Prepare

Heat the oven to 350°F. Unfold the pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheets into 2 (12-inch) squares. Cut each square into 24 (2-inch) squares, making 48 in total.
Using a sharp knife, cut diagonal lines from each corner of the pastry squares to within 3/4-inch of the center. Fold every other corner to the center and press to seal. Brush the pastries with the egg. Place the pastries onto 2 baking sheets.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Using the back of a spoon, press down the centers of the hot pastries to make an indentation. Fill with a tablespoon of strawberry filling (recipe below).

Strawberry Filling

3/4 cup hulled strawberries, quartered
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Pinch cinnamon

To Prepare

In small saucepan, stir together strawberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and cinnamon; let stand for 30 minutes. Stir 1 1/2 tablespoons of water into strawberry mixture; bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened and strawberries begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Transfer to bowl; let cool.

Makes 48 Superstars

These Strawberry Superstars are best the day they are made.  This recipe would be a great one to make with the kids, this weekend!

    Is it bad that I want to pick these up and throw them through the air? They look like cool little ninja throwing stars… cool… delicious…. ninja throwing stars. Of course I’d make sure they didn’t land on the floor – would be wanting to eat them afterwards! 🙂 Beautiful stars!
