How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork. 

Step 2

Stir the peanut butter, heavy cream and confectioners' sugar in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth.

Step 3

Unfold 1 pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Using a round cutter, cut the pastry sheet into 9 (3-inch) circles.  Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.

Step 4

Place 9 pastry circles onto a baking sheet.  Spoon about 1 teaspoon peanut butter mixture in the center of each pastry circle.  Top each with about 1/2 teaspoon jam.  Brush the edges of the pastry circles with the egg mixture.  Place the remaining pastry circles over the filling.  Press the edges firmly to seal.  Using a sharp knife, cut a small slit in the top of each filled pastry.

Step 5

Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Let the pastries cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes.  Sprinkle with additional confectioners' sugar.

Recipe Tips

  • Recipe Note: You can let the pastries cool for a bit longer if you like- the filling can be very hot!
  • Flavor Variation: for Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Doughnuts, omit the raspberry jam.  Place 5 to 6 semi-sweet chocolate chips on the peanut butter mixture on each pastry circle.  Top with the remaining pastry circles and proceed as directed above.
  • Flavor Variation: for Raspberry & White Chocolate Chip Doughnuts, omit the peanut butter, heavy cream and confectioners' sugar and increase the raspberry jam to 9 teaspoons.  Spoon 1 teaspoon jam on each pastry circle.  Place 5 to 6 white chocolate chips on the jam.  Top with the remaining pastry circles and proceed as directed above.
  • Time-Saving: Lining the baking sheet with parchment paper first will save on clean-up time later.

    This is just too easy to make, plus delicious you can make different flavors--so it is a winner all around! But instead of cutting circles 'loosing' pastry, I just cut mine in squares. Plus, before baking I brushed the tops with the egg wash sprinkled each square with about 1/2 tsp. sugar. They are so yummy, but do let them cool as the jam is hot. I tried the option with the raspberry jam white choc. chips--it tastes just like the older version of jelly doughnuts! Is a keeper will be great for holiday guests!! Thanks Puff Pastry!

    This is a very unique spin on doughnuts, and they came out perfectly. I've also made other variations and had fantastic results. People love these cute little flaky delights!
