Fall is the time for plums and the time to get inspired to make brunch once the heat of the summer has gone. This is one of the easiest pastry recipes to make, perfect for a dessert-like finish to a delicious brunch.
Total time: 40 minutes to thaw dough, 10 minutes to prepare, 30 to 40 minutes to bake.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Ingredients (4 servings)
1 sheet puff pastry
4 tsps brown sugar (or white sugar if you don’t have brown)
4 tsps butter
Powdered sugar for topping
Thaw the puff pastry according to the directions. Don’t let it thaw too long or the dough will be difficult to work with. The recommended time is 40 minutes, so plan accordingly.
Cut the dough in half and then each half into half so you have four rectangles. Wash the plums and cut each into 4 pieces.
Place two pieces of plum on each rectangle, top each with 1 tsp sugar then 1 tsp butter. You can estimate the butter and the sugar. A little more or a little less won’t matter.
Fold the dough over the plums and seal, using a little water on your fingertips to get a good seal. Place on a foil lined baking sheet (some of the juice will leak out and the foil makes it easier to clean.)
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until the bottom is browned and the top is very lightly browned. When cool, sprinkle with powered sugar. Enjoy!
