Traditional Christmas Star Pastries

Since it’s 1 December tomorrow we made some traditional Finnish Christmas pastries called Star Pastries with puff pastry dough (or filo dough) and prune jam and made a short video about it.

We used (as probably most Finns do) a ready made prune marmalade and frozen dough which you can buy from any grocery store. The dough is quite simple to do from scratch, too. All you need is

  • 300 g butter
  • 300 g wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 dl water

The pastries are baked at 225°C in an oven for 10-15 minutes. To get that golden hue, apply an egg wash on top. You can decorate the Christmas pastries with powdered sugar.Really good and simple and extremely Christmassy!
