The Pie Project: Cherry and Chocolate Puff Pastry Pie

[ Recipe adapted from Palachinka Blog ]

Easiest. Pie. Ever.

After my last pastry making disaster I wanted something simple, and what’s simpler than pre-made puff pastry?

It turned out to be just as tasty as it was simple — the perfect thing to throw together when your sweet tooth is nagging at you but you’re out of mini kitkats (or is that just me?). A word of warning though: it’s a pretty small pie. Mine yielded about four good-sized pieces, and was gone within a few moments.

My edits to the recipe were fairly minor: a few less chocolate chips and a few more cherries, and raw sugar to sprinkle on top instead of brown. My version is below, or you can check out the original on Palachinka Blog!

The Base
1 piece of puff pastry dough

The Filling
240 g drained, pitted sour cherries
50 g dark chocolate chips
50 g brown sugar
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 egg
2 tablespoons water
Raw sugar for sprinkling

1. Roll puff pastry into a thin rectangle. Mix sugar and corn starch with cherries.

2. Place the cherry mix in the middle of the rectangle and toss chocolate chips over. Wrap tight and then transfer into a baking pan lined with baking paper, so that the folded part is down.

3. Brush with a mixture of egg and water, make a few cuts on the top and sprinkle with sugar.

4. Bake in the oven according to the instructions from the puff pastry dough package until you see that the dough is baked properly.
