Glazed Cherry Almond Twists

This is one of my favorite deserts to make and it’s always a hit. With very few ingredients you can make an excellent dessert.

1 can cherry pie filling
2 sheets Puff pastry dough
6 oz sliced almonds
5 tbs powdered sugar
1-2 tbs water

To Prepare

Heat oven to 420.

using thawed puff pastry unfold and cut into three sections where the folds were.

using a rolling-pin roll each section into about 14-16 inches long cut into thirds.

in the center of each rectangle add four cherries fold over and pinch together very firmly. Twist each long rectangle once and place on cookie sheet.

( I did not grease my cookie sheet because I used silicone liners if you don’t have one its one of the best things I ever bought.)

repeat and with all rectangles and bake once you have a full cookie sheet. bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned and puffed. (if filling comes out gently push it back in with the back of a spoon and next time pinch more firmly.

Cool on cookie sheet


mix powdered sugar with water mix well so its thick but runny, using a spoon drizzle all over twists and quickly sprinkle almonds on top
