X-mas delicacy pt 1

This sessions topic was a traditional Finnish Christmas delicacy, “Joulutorttu”. It is a pie made of puff pastry. In my childhood, with my grandma, we used to do the dough ourselves but that needs quite much time and energy.

When the Christmas is closing, there are frozen puff pastry sold in every shop and market. Easy way – my way 🙂

After rolling the dough, we cut the dough into squares and then we made little cuts from corner to center. In the middle of the square we put a spoonful of plum jam. Traditionally the plum jam is used but of course you can use other jams as well. If you want to play wild, you can fill the pie with marmalade or even chocolate.


Then we folded every other “triangle” to the center. Remember not to make tight folds, it makes the pie stay too flat. Keep it airy.

Traditionally the powder sugar is spread on the top of the pies but this time we didn’t have powder sugar.
