  • 1 ready-made chilled puff pastry sheet
  • 1 ¼ cup (400g) jam I used apricot jam, but choose your favorite flavor.
  • 1 beaten egg or milk, for brushing (optional)


  • Preheat the air fryer to 375F / 190C.
  • Roll out the pastry and cut into 16 equal squares.
  • Place one heaping teaspoon of jam in the middle of each square.
  • Fold up the pastry squares and brush the edges with beaten egg (or milk) and press them together. Brush folded pastry again with the milk or egg.
  • Put half the puff pastry bites into the air fryer basket and cook for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining half.


  • Different brands of puff pastry may be different sizes so you may need to adjust the number of squares you cut out.
  • Brushing the pastry with milk or egg is optional but will help it seal and will give the tops a little shine. You can use water to seal them. 
  • Avoid overfilling with the jam or it may ooze out while cooking. 
  • Allow the pastries to cool several minutes before serving as the jam filling will be hot.  
  • Buy and Freeze - Puff pastry is often easier to find around the holidays. Buy and store in the freezer for later use. 
  • Make Homemade Jam -  Making homemade jam is economical and so tasty!
