Traditional Finnish Christmas pastries

For the pastry you will need:
200g (7 oz) soft butter or margarine
2,5dl (1 cup) flour
1dl (1/3 cup) cold water
1 teaspoon vinergar

Filling:
Plum jam

  • Put all the pastry ingredients into a bowl and mix quickly by hand into a dough. Don't nead too much.
  • Put the dough to a cold place to harden.
  • Roll out on a floured board, folding a few times to make a puff pastry, and finally make a 1/2 cm thick sheet.
  • Cut the shett into 7x7cm squares. Split the corners of easch square. 
  • Place a bit of plum jam in the middle of each square. Fold over every other split end onto the center to form a windmill-like pastry.
  • Brush with beaten egg and bake at 250C (450F) until light brown.
ps. quite often we Finns use a ready-made dough for these pastries!









Does anyone know a gluten-free option???

  2. These pastries look delicious. I have tried something similar, the only difference was the filling. I have to try your recipe. I think plum jam would be an interesting new taste in a pastry.

    1. Have a try! In Finland plum jam is associated with xmas so we add it to almost all xmas delicacies.

  6. They look delicious, I will definitely try them. Plum jam makes them ideal for winter time, not only Christmas, but I am tempted to try them with other flavors as well.

    1. Other flavours would certainly work as well. For us the plum jam gives that xmas-flavour. Funny that we don't bake these all year round.
