  • 1 box Puff pastry sheets Thawed, I used the 17.3 oz Pepperidge Farm box
  • 1 cup Cherry pie filling
  • 1 Egg Large, Optional
  • 1 tbsp Water Optional
  • 1/3 cup Sanding sugar Optional


  • Unwrap both the puff pastry sheets and cut into 8 squares (4 from each sheet).
  • Place 1-2 tablespoons cherry pie filling in the center of each square. 
  • Brush the edges of the square with water.
  • Fold the puff pastry from one corner to the other in a triangle shape, enclosing the filling inside. 
  • Use a fork to press and seal the edges together OR you can just pinch all along the edges tightly, which is what I did.
  • Place them on a cookie tray, lined with parchment paper.
  • Optional: In a small mixing bowl, whisk together egg and water. Brush this on ton top of each pastry. Sprinkle sanding sugar on top.  
  • Bake at 375 degrees F for about 20-25 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a covered cardboard box at room temperature for up to 2 days.
