Artists test their own talent trying to create a berry as beautiful as the original, just as I tried to create a puff pastry blueberry recipe that tasted as Mother Nature intended.

I don’t think that there is anything more beautiful than what good ole “Mother Nature” creates. The colors of new berries are amazing and taste even better when loaded into blueberry pastry recipes.

When berries look good, I just buy, buy and buy. When I can’t get fresh, frozen work perfectly. In fact, since they don’t grow here frozen can be tastier.

So when my refrigerator was full of blueberries, I had to get creative. Creative doesn’t mean difficult or time-consuming.

This Blueberry Puff Pastry recipe is quick, easy and delicious. That makes this recipe about as perfect as those blueberries.

The filling is such a deep purple, that only my fingers showed how purple they really were after I shoved a couple of not-so-delicate bites into my mouth.

The buttery puff pastry was a perfect match for the sweetness of the blueberry filling, and the whole thing was finished with a light sprinkling of powdered sugar.

Puff pastry is one of those ingredients that make a regular ole-joe cook like me look good. It’s a delicious time saver too.

Here are a few fun Puff Pastry Facts:

What is puff pastry? Puff pastry is a series of pastry dough folds or layers with butter, lard or olive oil rolled in between. Puff pastry appeared in cookbooks as early as 1607 in Spain and 1653 in France. Rumors state that it was first created by a French painter/cook prior to the 17th century.

Can you make your own puff pastry? You can make your own puff pastry. Renowned chef Julia Childs recommends 73 layers in Volume II of her Mastering the Art of French Cooking textbook.

I’ve never had the desire to make my own. Commercial brands are relatively available in most grocery stores, and I find them easy to work with and delicious. I know of some amazing bloggers that have made their own, but that’s not on my bucket list.

Shopping tips for buying puff pastry:

According to Epicurious, there are 3 considered worthy, Dufour Classic Puff Pastry, Trader Joe’s All Butter Puff Pastry, and Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets. The first two are made from all butter, and Pepperidge Farm’s version contains vegetable shortening.

They state the all-butter versions kept their flavor longer but I’ve used Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry for years and it’s delicious. I say the best one is what you like. Right?





This Blueberry Puff Pastry Recipe makes a perfect breakfast over the holidays or a great addition to your brunch menu. I love working with puff pastry because it looks like you went to a lot more work than you actually did. They are sure a lot easier to make than they look!

Blueberry Filling substitutions:

Puff pastry rolls can be filled with about anything that you can come up with. If you want to make other versions of this puff pastry blueberry recipe, the following fillings are excellent substitutes:

  • Cream such as a Bavarian cream
  • Cream cheese such as used in cream cheese danishes
  • Fruit, either cooked into a filling like this, canned pie filling one or jam
  • Chocolate or Nutella
  • Poppyseed

  • Cooling Rack – I love these large racks. I can get an entire batch of cookies on one and they’re tough enough to hold large loaves of bread. It fits into my half-sheet pan for baking bacon too!
  • Parchment Paper – This is my favorite parchment paper. It’s important to know that there is an oven temperature rating on parchment paper. If you exceed it your parchment paper can catch fire in your oven. This one is rated to 450°F, high enough for my bread recipes too.
  • Rolling Pin – I’m old school what can I say? I have three rolling pins and keep going back to my tried and true classic rolling pin.

Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later!

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt (pinch)
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 puff pastry sheet
  • 1 egg or egg white
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a saucepan combine blueberries, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, salt, and butter. Cook over medium-low heat until berries soften (5 minutes). Stir in flour and cook until thickened (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • Lightly flour a work surface. Unroll puff pastry and cut into thirds.
  • Spoon cooled filling down the center of each piece of puff pastry. Bring edges together and pinch to close. Don’t overfill or they will break open during baking. Slice into 1-1/2 inch lengths. Place rolls on baking sheets.
  • Mix egg (or egg white) with a small amount of water. Whip with a fork until foamy. Brush the top of each roll with egg mixture. Prick with a knife or fork to vent.
  • Place on the parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Dust with powdered sugar. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Made these, really good. (Except) don’t add flour as your thickener. You will have chunks and pieces of white flour running all through your blueberries. I knew better, but did it anyway. Use cornstarch mixed with a bit of water to thicken to avoid flour chunks. Just mad at myself for following these directions.

I didn't have that issue, Nancy and it's funny that my sisters and I always have the flour/cornstarch debate when it comes to thickeners. I find cornstarch can be gelatinous so try and use flour. It can also be mixed with just a touch of water. I appreciate your comment so other readers can decide this debate for themselves. Thank you for sharing!

not sure what happened when I made them because I had to use both sheets of pastry. How long should I have rolled out the pastry sheet?

Julie Menghini

What happened Rosemary? I just took each sheet and cut it into thirds, added my filling and rolled it lengthwise to seal in the filling and then sliced them into 1-1/2 inch rolls which I baked.

When to you cut the “rolled” pastry into the bite sized pieces? Before or after baking? Thanks
