Here's a deliciously different way to use fresh blackberries - mix them with a little jam, and place in the middle of a flaky puff pastry star that's been topped with creamy pudding and mint. This dessert just about melts in your mouth.

of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets(1 sheet), thawed
cup seedless blackberry jamor preserves
ounces (2 containers, 4 ounces each ) vanilla pudding
pint fresh blackberries(about 25 berries)
tablespoons thinly sliced fresh mintleaves and 25 whole fresh mint leaves
Heat the oven to 400°F. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Cut the pastry sheet into 25 (about 2-inch) squares. Using a sharp knife, cut diagonal lines from the corners of the pastry squares to within 3/4-inch of the center. Fold every other corner to the center and press to seal. Place the pastries onto 2 baking sheets.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Using the back of a spoon, press down the centers of the hot pastries to make an indentation.
Heat the jam in a medium microwavable bowl on HIGH for 10 seconds or until it's warm. Add the blackberries and toss to coat. Spoon about 2 teaspoons pudding in the center of each pastry. Top each with 1 blackberry and 1/4 teaspoon shredded mint. Garnish each with 1 mint leaf.
