Puff Pastry Stars

These little stars would jazz up a Christmas buffet or perhaps a nice little gift for a shut-in!
The pearl sugar adds a pretty touch and you can't go wrong with a sprig of mint!
The above photo was taken just prior to the stars entering the oven!

Puff Pastry Stars:

1 package puff pastry, thawed according to package directions
Small amount of pie filling, your choice (I used cherry)

Roll out pastry (one sheet at a time) to measure 16 X 8"
Then cut 8 - 4" squares from each sheet

Place one scant tablespoon of pie filling in center of each square

From each 4" square, cut a slit to within 3/4" of filling

Take every other corner up to the middles (overlapping a bit) and pinch pastry together and place on pastry lined sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes

Prepare a powdered sugar glaze and spread on stars after they have been out of the oven for a few minutes

Sprinkle with pearl sugar and garnish with mint, if desired
