strawberry chia turnovers // tahini maple drizzle

Strawberry Chia Turnovers // Maple Tahini Drizzle
Who wouldn't want to know how to make pastries in under 30 minutes? 
These are so stupid easy to make - simple ingredients with semi impressive results with little effort.

Perfect to make in a pinch for Brunch or Mothers Day.

They could be a lifesaver one day.

Date Sugar makes yet another appearance and does not disappoint - if you don't have date sugar you can absolutely use pure maple syrup.

I love the macadamias but almonds would also work really well with the Strawberries.

I can hardly believe it is almost strawberry season! Our local strawberries start popping up around mid June - the strawberries at the store are looking pretty fine and they taste good, but nothing beats locally grown.

Strawberry Chia Turnovers // Maple Tahini Drizzle
Strawberry Chia Turnovers //  Tahini Maple Drizzle
makes 12 turnovers

you will need:
for the turnovers
2 cups strawberries // hulled + quartered
1 tbsp date sugar
1-2  tbsp water
2 tbsp white chia seeds

1 sheet thawed vegan puff pastry  (kept  cold until ready to use) // rolled into a 14 x 11 rectangle
(Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets)
flour for dusting + rolling

for the glaze
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp tahini
1 tsp maple syrup - now
1 tbsp non dairy milk

1/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts 

assembly:
Pre heat oven to 425 degrees F

In a sauce pan over medium heat, add  quartered strawberries, date sugar + water. Bring to a simmer, stirring and breaking up the strawberries with the back of a wooden spoon, Cook for 5 -8 minutes until berries begin to breakdown- you still want some of the berries to hold shape.

Remove from heat and stir in chia seeds, set aside to cool while you prep the puff pastry dough.

On a well floured surface roll out 1 puff pastry sheet to a 14" x 11" rectangle. Using a pastry cutter or knife cut the rectangle (the long way) into 2 halves. Cut into 6 squares. The cut each square into 2 triangles.

Place about 1 tbsp or so of the jam onto onside of the triangle. Fold over meeting corner with corner creating another triangle. Fold the 3 sides up sealing each side (see photos).

Place triangles on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes until puffed and golden brown.

Remove from oven and cool.

To make the drizzle, mix all ingredients in a bowl until smooth and creamy.

Drizzle Maple Tahini over the cooled pastries and sprinkle with chopped macadamia nuts.

Serve the same day + store leftovers in the Fridge.

Enjoy!

  1. Your turnovers are so pretty, and I like that you used packaged puff pastry for sake of ease. For a quick and easy dessert, I'm always satisfied with a hot batch of chocolate chip cookies.

  2. Go to quick easy dessert? Well, it might be these little beauties if I had some Gluten Free puff pastry but my quickest easiest dessert is a frozen banana + frozen fruit of choice and a glug of non dairy milk in the Vitamix. L A Z Y

  3. My go-to quick and easy dessert - date rolls with coconut (dates, water, shredded coconut). Super easy and super satisfying!

  4. My go-to easy dessert for just myself is usually banana nice cream. Or if I'm feeling a lil' fancier or have other people around, I'll make a quick mug cake or brownie.
