Assume massive, roughly lower rectangular bricks of flaky, buttery puff pastry. Simply golden sufficient, barely scorched across the edges if distracted for even a second. These are sliced ​​in half, releasing buttery vapor and a scent that may solely imply one thing good is coming, earlier than being smothered in raspberry jam (at all times the “stylish” type) and heavy scoops of freshly whipped cream.

You have created them with us so many instances that I am certain we have been capable of make them ourselves earlier than we left elementary faculty. There’s nothing fairly like being proficient at whipping cream and smashing crammed puff pastry slices collectively. By these moments within the kitchen, I discovered the style of making, cooking, consuming, understanding how flavors go collectively and the way to weigh utilizing solely my eyes (which isn’t at all times really useful).

It was the gateway to a way forward for meals, of getting a thoughts stuffed with nothing however elements and “what to do subsequent”. I owe you greater than you recognize, the origin being none apart from these jam puffs.
