I love baking and have made it my Sunday ritual to bake something, usually with LP’s help. I recently got a new lattice cutter and thought that I’d try and make something using it and these Jammy Lattice Pastries were created!

Do we have to make our own pastry for the jam lattice pastries?

Using ready made pastry is a great way of baking and home. It makes the whole process so much easier, especially when baking with children. But, you can always make your own pastry dough in the food processor with flour, butter etc if you’d rather!

These lattice jam tart slices are a great alternative to making jam tarts or apple pies and so easy to make just with ingredients you have at home in the pantry. Pastries are such a classic Italian treat and something we always enjoy at home for breakfast or a sweet treat – especially if they’re homemade!

What can you fill these pastries with?

I filled our lattice jam pastries with a variety of conserves – Lemon Curd, Raspberry Jam, Strawberry Jam and Duerr’s Rhubarb and Custard Jam – you could even use chocolate spread. Although we used a variety of berry jams in our pastries you could add fresh fruit if you wanted too.

Apple lattice pies would be lovely, as would strawberry, cherry or even a lovely mixed berry pastry. Anything you’d put in a fruit pie would work well in these gorgeous pastries.

If you’re looking for other simple bakes to make for dessert or a treat at home, why not try our pizza pinwheels, chocolate chip muffins or never fail cookies? You can see all our recipes to date here.

So here’s our delicious Jam Lattice Pastries Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 500 g puff pastry in a block or ready rolled puff pastry sheet
  • jam
  • sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6
  • Roll the pastry out to 0.5cm thick on a lightly floured surface and cut the bases of your pastries to the desired size.
  • Gather the trimmings and roll the pastry out again. Cut the tops of the pastries to the same size as the base sections.
  • Cut each piece with the lattice cutter – or sharp knife – before trimming off three lines of lattice, making the lattice tops the right size to spread across the bases.
  • Put the bases on a greased baking tray – or one lined with baking paper or baking parchment.
  • Add a heaped teaspoon of jam to each pastry base and then top with the lattice pastry.
  • Open each of the lattice lids up so it fits across the base and then press all four edges down with a fork.
  • Sprinkle with sugar if desired or brush with milk or beaten egg yolk and then bake for 15-18 minutes or until well risen and golden brown on top.
  • Leave to cool for a few minutes before serving.
