These Pailles are sugar-dusted puff pastry sandwich cookies with a raspberry jam filling.  A delectable French dessert you can easily make in your own home.

Pailles with Raspberry Jam + Dorie Greespan's Baking Chez Moi cookbook giveaway with Driscoll's Berries #RaspberryDessert @driscollsberry @doriegreenspanOh, Dorie Greenspan.  Who doesn’t love her?  She recently released another fabulous cookbook, Baking Chez Moi: Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere.  It is such a beautiful book, loaded with French desserts that are do-able in your own kitchen.

Pailles with Raspberry Jam + Dorie Greespan's Baking Chez Moi cookbook giveaway with Driscoll's Berries #RaspberryDessert @driscollsberry @doriegreenspanI’m always intimidated with French cooking and baking, and even eating the delicate desserts shakes my feathers.  The reason is because I’m just not that knowledgeable of the cuisine.  Dorie’s book brings it down a notch and lets you feel comfortable opening the door of your home to welcome French baking.

I accepted a challenge to bake a recipe from Baking Chez Moi, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results.  But, first, let me tell you about how drawn into this book I was while flipping through the pages.  I found myself stopping and reading, even though I really didn’t have the time and should’ve been running out the door to run my errands before picking up my kids.  Dorie includes wonderful storytelling and clear instructions that put you at ease when trying a new technique.

Pailles with Raspberry Jam + Dorie Greespan's Baking Chez Moi cookbook giveaway with Driscoll's Berries #RaspberryDessert @driscollsberry @doriegreenspanThese Pailles can be made with store-bought refrigerated puff pastry, so no need to make your own.  I did make the raspberry jam filling using my favorite Driscoll’s berries.  In fact, at the end of this post, I have a giveaway for y’all including $15 worth of Driscoll’s berries and a copy of Baking Chez Moi!  But, before we get to that, let’s talk more about this recipe…

Pailles with Raspberry Jam + Dorie Greespan's Baking Chez Moi cookbook giveaway with Driscoll's Berries #RaspberryDessert @driscollsberry @doriegreenspanSo, like I said, I used store-bought puff pastry and Driscoll’s raspberries to make a quick raspberry jam filling.  The cookies look delicate and difficult, but they are so super easy, using a simple roll and fold technique.  Even better, in between the folds, you sprinkle each layer with sugar.  YUM!

GIVEAWAY

Okay, now we can talk about the giveaway.  To enter for your chance to win a copy of Baking Chez Moi plus $15 coupon of Driscoll’s Berries, please leave a comment below telling me what is your favorite dessert?  That’s it!  Contest will close Wednesday, November 12th at 10:00PM CDT.  Must be a resident of the US and 18 years of age or older.  One entry per person please.

Pailles with Raspberry Jam Filling

Prep Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Pailles with Raspberry Jam Filling

These Pailles are sugar-dusted puff pastry sandwich cookies with a raspberry jam filling. A delectable French dessert you can easily make in your own home.

    For the Cookies:
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed but cold
  • 1 large egg
  • Granulated sugar, for sprinkling
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting
  • For the Raspberry Jam Filling:
  • 1 package (6 oz.) Driscoll's fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • Juice from half a lemon
For the cookies:

Dust a clean work surface with flour. Roll out the sheet of puff pastry to about 16 x 16 inches square. (An inch or two smaller is fine, but I wouldn't go larger.)

Beat the egg in a small bowl with a tablespoon of water. Using a pastry brush, brush the puff pastry with the egg wash and sprinkle a coat of sugar over the entire surface.

Fold the puff pastry in half, then brush the surface again with egg wash and sprinkle with a coat of sugar. Fold again in half, the same length (so you have a thin rectangle of dough with layers). Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with flour one more time.

Transfer the strip of puff pastry to a lined baking sheet and freeze for 2 hours. After 2 hours, preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone liner.

Remove the puff pastry from the freezer and transfer the puff pastry to a cutting board and slice into 1/4-inch wide strips. Line three strips together on the prepared baking sheet with the cut-side up so you can see the layers. Gently press the three strips together so they bake together. (See photos in blog post for visual help.) Repeat with the remaining dough. Sprinkle the tops lightly with sugar.

Place a piece of parchment paper on top of the pastries, then place a large cooling rack on top. This will keep the pastries flat while baking. Bake on the center rack for 10 minutes. Remove the cooling rack and parchment paper. Use a spatula to lightly press and flatten then carefully flip the cookies and bake for another 10 minutes (no need to cover again with the parchment and cooling rack.)

Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, make the raspberry jam.

For the Raspberry Jam:

Combine the raspberries and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Mash the berries while cooking. Once the juices start bursting from the fruits and starts boiling, cook another couple of minutes until thickened. Remove from the heat and let cool.

Sandwich pairs of the pastries together with the raspberry jam and lightly dust with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.

  18. chocolatey fudgey ANYTHING

  19. Christopher says:

    Is it possible to have a “favorite” desert? For someone like me, who loves to occasionally indulge in something sweet after a wonderful meal, my preference is to treat myself to those things which “take me home” and most specifically remind me of Mom.
    For me that would be Coconut Cake. My mother always made it for every holiday.

  20. My favorite dessert is chocolate pudding.

  21. Angel Food Cake with Berries and Whipped Cream

  22. Favorite dessert; I would have to say my Death By Chocolate

  23. Angel food cake is my favorite with French cream puffs a close second! Thanks!

  25. I love fresh berry pies- blackberry is my absolute favorite but I like all the berries in a fresh pie with whipped cream.

  26. Fresh peach pie a la mode 🙂

  27. I have always loved cheesecake, but our homemade ice cream from our own recipe is also a favorite.

  28. If and only if I have to choose I would say eclair.

  29. love homemade strawberry shortcake!

  30. Strawberry shortcake is my favorite dessert

  31. My favorite dessert is Pflaumen Kuchen which is a plum cake made with sour plums on a shortbread type base then sprinkled with a crumble topping for a tart and sweet coffee cake.

  32. I love pretty much any kind of cake. I have used Driscoll’s berries before to make cakes with. I also love your German Chocolate Cake cookies.

  33. Mmmmm, mmmmmm!!! I favor anything with raspberries. That has been my favorite flavor for years. I like to make a dish of vanilla yogurt with fresh raspberries throughout. If I have no raspberries, I’ll add some kind of raspberry flavor; jam, jelly, syrup….whatever. I keep a bottle of raspberry syrup on the counter to add to my coffee!

  34. tammy cordery says:

  39. Creme Brulee is my favorite

  40. Picking one favorite dessert is not easy, but I think I’d have to go with cheesecake. It’s something I make only rarely, so it’s a special treat. My favorite cheesecake is good old-fashioned New York style, and of course, a topping of berries makes it perfect.

  41. my favorite dessert is Tiramisu, and it helps that I make a pretty good one too! 😉
