Leftover Pastry = Mini Jam Turnovers…

“You don’t have to do everything from scratch.

Nobody wants to make puff pastry.”

~ Ina Garten

Whenever I make my Rock ‘n’ Roll Sausage Rolls,

I often give in and use ready prepared pastry sheets.


I always have a rectangular strip of puff pastry left over.

Waste not, want not..

Let’s make Mini Jam Turnovers!

Cut, egg wash the borders and fill with jam.


  • Leftover puff pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Jam, pick your favourite
  • Icing sugar, to dust

Seal, crimp, egg wash and ready to bake.


  1. Preheat oven to 200Β°C / 400Β°F / gas mark 6
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  3. Roll out and flatten the leftover pastry, fold over one corner; like a napkin, then cut along the side to make a triangle. Repeat twice more.
  4. Brush on the egg wash along the unfolded sides, to make a border.
  5. Place a 1 tsp of jam the centre of the triangle.
  6. Fold pastry in half diagonally, over the filling.
  7. Press the edgesΒ to seal, then crimp with a fork.
  8. Brush the egg wash over the top of the whole turnover.
  9. Bake until puffed and golden, about 15 – 18 minutes.
  10. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
  11. To serve, sieve over some icing sugar.

Puffed and golden, cool on a rack, then dust with icing sugar.


A mini sweet jammy treat;

great with a fresh cup of tea…
