Lemon Curd Puffs


If you have puff pastry on hand, and you always should, simple yet elegant desserts like these are always within easy reach. You can find all-butter puff pastry, such as by DuFours, in many supermarkets, but any variety will do. Here, the pastry is cut into squares and baked until crisp and golden, then allowed to cool and layered with lemon curd. You could fill the pastry with other spreads, too, including other types of curd or your favorite fruit compote or jam.


1 sheet puff pastry
powdered sugar (to taste)
lemon curd (to taste)


1Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
2Roll the puff pastry out on a floured work surface and use a pizza cutter to cut out an even number of squares.
3Place the squares on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
4Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
5Let cool.
6Spread lemon curd on 1 square and cover with another square.
7Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
