Kids In the Kitchen – Pear Puffs

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen, the linky where we can all share what our kids have been up to  in the kitchen. We love to hear all about your cookery adventures so do come and join us.

Last week Miss T from The Beesley Buzz made some Mini Blackcurrant Muffins which look incredibly yummy! Thanks for linking up.

Also, thanks to the lovely kids over on Autism Mumma blog for their delicious Fruit Pops, we are definitely going to make some of these.

This week the Little Man helped me to make Pear Puffs. Here is how we got on.

Pear Puffs


  • 500g ready made puff pastry
  • tin of pears
  • double cream
  • beaten egg for glazing

First the Little Man rolled out the pastry to about 1/4 inch thickness
We then cut the pastry into diagonal strips to make diamond shapes. I guess you could use a pastry cutter or make different shapes, but this time we decided we’d like diamonds.
We beat an egg and the Little Man brushed it over the pastry to give it a glaze when cooked.
I baked them in the oven for 15 minutes at gas 5/190C until they were golden brown.
While they were cooking we chopped up the tinned pears into small pieces. You can use any soft fruit to fill the puffs, we chose pear because it’s a fruit that every family member likes and it saved us from making lots of different ones. I used tinned pears because they are very soft.
We then whipped the double cream until it was thick.
Once cooked I sliced them about halfway through and the Little Man filled them with the pear pieces and the cream.
They didn’t last very long!
