1 When you work with puff pastry, be sure it is cold.
2 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
3 Roll the puff pastry into thin layer on a parchment paper so it is easily transferable on the baking pan.
4 Even out the edges of puff pastry using a cookie cutter.
5 Cut 1” strips on each of the long sides of the rectangle, as shown in the video.
6 Place each strip on border of the rectangle and press on the strips as shown in the video.
7 Cut the edges for an even look.
8 You can keep one big piece to make a fruit tart or cut in individual servings.(the chef cuts it into three pieces in the video)
9 Use a fork to poke the center of the dough.
10 Place aluminum foil on center of dough (leaving out the edges).
11 While making dough you want edges to puff up but not the center so put dry beans on center (on top of the foil) to create weight.
12 Brush the edges with egg yolk to give them a golden color.
13 Place puff pastry on baking pan.
14 Bake 15-20 minutes or until it becomes golden brown.
15 Once the puff pastry is cooked, carefully remove the foil paper and beans from the center.
16 Let puff pastry cool down until it reaches the room temperature.
17 Cover the center of each puff pastry with the pastry cream.
18 Arrange the fruits on top, as shown in the video.
19 To prepare the glaze, in a bowl dilute the peach or apricot jam with orange blossom water.
20 Brush the fruits with the glaze.
21 Serve the pastries cold or at room temperature.
