Blackberry Puffs

I made these for a wedding shower at work and they were a surprisingly big hit. Even better, they were amazingly easy to make, but look quite nice when finished.

Unfortunately, I was in such a hurry to make them that I totally forgot to take photos! However, these were so delicious that I just had to post the recipe. Next time I make them, I promise I'll make proper documentation!

Blackberry Puffs

Flour for work surface
1 pkg. (17oz) puff pastry
3 c. blackberries (about two small containers)
3 tbsp. sugar
1 c. marscapone

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to approx. 9x12" rectangle (you can eyeball it). Trim edges and cut pastry into 12 3" squares. Place pastry on a large baking sheet and refrigerate until firm, about 15 mins.

2. Transfer sheet and to oven and bake until pastry is puffed and golden brown, 12-15 mins. Let cool, then split each pastry horizontally to create a top and bottom piece.

3. In bowl, mash blackberries and sugar with fork ntil juice but still chunky. Spread marscapone on pastry bottoms. Top with blackberry mixture and pastry tops. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
