Valentine’s Day is today, and I can see lot of heart shaped candies, toys and even balloons all over the store. Today my daughter wrote a valentine card for me told me she loves mom, Mom makes cookies and mom buy candies. In turn I decided to make this turnover for her. She likes raspberry so made this raspberry rose petal jam puff pastry turnovers.
Yes my kids love strawberries and raspberries. I buy them whenever I can; daughter likes to eat it as such. She is asking about raspberry ice cream which I need to make it for her. I bought some treat bags and candies for their class ice cream cups.
Coming back to the recipe, this is inspired from Soframiz cook book, again I changed some steps and ingredients as I don’t have enough time to make dough from scratch, so decide use the puff pastries sheets. Then I don’t have raspberry jam in my hand so skipped that one and only used rose petal jam. I only have a 3 inch heart cookie cutter so can’t make a bigger one. So I ended up making bite size treats. These are cute you can have it as excellent dessert for your valentine party.
In India we have rose petal jam called Gulkand, which is available at the local Indian store, but I am not sure of the quality, and is also very expensive. So I decided to buy it from my favorite Middle Eastern store Phoenicia. My roses have not started flowering this year may be I will try to make this jam at home, once I get lots of roses.
Valentine’s Day means roses and chocolate, this time I skipped chocolate and has gone with rose. These are simple and yet delicious treats that you can make for your little or big valentines. You will see the big smile on their face that is what a cook look forward to. Here is the recipe to make your treat. These are less sweetened ones if you want more sweetness add more rose petal jam or sprinkle some extra sugar on top of turnovers.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all
