Finnish Plum Tarts

11 Dec

This is a traditional Finnish Christmas dessert made the easy way. This is sugar free dessert and my family and  American friends have enjoyed them every year.

  • 24 oz bag of dried pitted plums
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 boxes of puffy pastry sheets (thawed in fridge)
Cook the plums and water in a pot on medium heat, stirring the plums until they are soft and tear apart and water has cooked out. Set mixture aside to cool.
Unfold the puffy pastry sheets. Cut into 3 equal strips along the creased  fold lines. Next cut each strip into 3 small squares. Cut each square diagonally toward the center leaving the middle untouched. Fold every other corner towards the center forming a star. Place a spoonful of plums in the center on top of the folded corners. Bake in 400 degree oven until lightly golden.
