Surprise Jam Pastry

This Buttery, flaky, tender danish pastry is drizzled with icing and sprinkled with almonds. It is perfect for breakfast or as a treat. 


I call this surprise pastry because it is really a surprise.

Let me explain.

It all started over the summer when I do most of my canning. I love to make jams when fruit is at the peak of freshness. So I made a couple of jars of some fruit preserves. I know some were Figs because my friend Lisa has a fig tree. I also made some apple butter and I think I made some peach preserves. Anyway I made some type of fruit preserve and forgot to mark them. 4 jars in my pantry and I have no idea what they are. So I got inventive and decided to call them surprise jam.

When I came across this beautiful Pastry recipe over at King Arthur Flour, I knew it would be the perfect vehicle for my surprise jam. I decided to make something similar except I would use my surprise jam. It turned out buttery and delicious!


Peace be with you,
