Apricot-Marzipan bundle


Delicious Marzipan and Apricot filling

This months is hosted @ Siri's Corner it is a event started by Maheshwari of 'Beyond the Usual'.
I used tinned apricots as fresh ones are no were to seen here. And even if there was I am sure the price might be too high as it is not in season here.
I love this dessert, it is just delcious.

When you just cut open these bundles, you see these almost melted marzipan and the the fruit inside it is just so yumm.

It is not difficult to make, ofcourse if you make your own puff pastry, then for sure it will take longer. But i think life is too short to start making puff pastry. Especially when you are lucky to get wonderful quality of puff pastry from the shops

Ingridients for 3 person
3 squares of shop bought puff pastry
5 tbsp apricot jam/marmalade
50gm grated marzipan
6 small halfs of apricot ( i used tinned one)
1 egg
25 gm Almond flakes

For glacing.
2 tbsp jam
1tsp water.

Method.
Preheat the oven to 200°c.
Divide the jam intomiddle of each squares of pastrt. On top of the jam add the marzipan (divide them into 3 portion).
Lay the halved apricots on top of this mixture.
Eggwash the sides pf the pastry and close eack of them into a bundle. Open up on top a little bit so that the steam can escape.
Give a coat of egggwash all over the bundle and sprinkle the almond flakes on the sides and the top.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes ot untill they are lightly brown.
In the mean time heat the glacing ingridients and when the bundles are baked and they are still hot with a brush paint give a nice coating of the glace all over the bundle.
Leav them for cooling for 1O to 15 minutes and serve them.
You can also serve them in room temptarture.
