Easy Almond Pastries


  • 1 box of frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 1 can of almond pastry filling
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 3 T. milk
  • Food coloring if desired


  • Preheat the oven to 400F degrees.
  • Using a cookie cutter (or a sharp knife) cut out an even number of puff pastry pieces.
  • Generously spread the almond pastry filling on half of the cut-out shapes, and then use the remaining shapes to top them off. Using a fork, press together the edges of the pastry to seal in the almond filling.
  • Transfer the pastries to a lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with the beaten egg.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until the pastries are golden brown. Set them aside to cool.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk. Add more sugar or milk to reach desired consistancy. Stir in food coloring as desired.
  • Drizzle the icing over the cooled pastries to decorate. Alternatively, you can brush the icing on using a pastry brush or new paint brush.
