Sugar-topped puff pastry served with custard

Strawberry jam and kaya (coconut jam) ninja stars

From today onwards, or when I can be bothered to, there will be a photo with most steps for better understanding.

Hrm, I used to buy these from school on a Wednesday from the VCAL cafe until I learnt how to make them. HAHA they lost one customer.

makes around 9 - 12 for 1 sheet of puff pastry

  • packaged frozen puff pastry (semi-defrosted)
  • jam of your choice
  • 1 small egg, beaten
  • oil / melted butter or margarine for greasing baking paper

180 degrees Celsius
fan forced


1. Cut pre-rolled puff pastry into square pieces. (If you have small pieces left over you can use them later :D)

2. From the edges, cut a 1 -1.5 cm diagonal line towards the centre.

3. Place a teaspoon of your favourite jam in the centre.

4. Fold the edges inwards like a pinwheel.

5. Put the pastry pinwheels on a greased tray lined with baking paper.

6. Glaze pastry with a beaten egg.

7. If you had spare pieces of pastry left from step 1, sprinkle sugar on top.

8. Bake for about 10 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.
