Incredible Berry Twist

Who is ready for a delightful treat that is not too sweet and with just the right amount of ruby-red ripe strawberries?










This delightful treat can be made with any type of berry, such as blackberry, blueberry, raspberry. Just don’t forget to dust lightly with powder sugar for a light sweet snack without feeling heavy. Great for picnics, parties, luncheons..


1 cup of fresh strawberries
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of lemon juice
1 box puff pastry sheets (2 sheets)



Combine strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Mash mixture with potato masher until sugar is dissolved and berries are nice and soft


Increase heat to high and bring mixture to a rapid boil. Stirring often allow to boil for about 5 minutes or until thickened. Just keep stirring mixture to avoid sticking to the pan.


Place one sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Lightly dust pastry with flour and roll to smooth out creases.


Spread over pastry sheet with 1/3 cup of strawberry mixture.Do the same with the second sheet of pastry, and then place on top of the first pastry sheet and press down gently. You don’t want the filling to ooze out the sides.


Place pastry sheets in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a non stick silicone mat.


Using a ruler as a guide, cut pastry sheets into 1 1/2 inch strips. Carefully pick up strips and place on baking sheets, twisting three times before laying it down.


Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool about 10 minutes and finish off with a light dusting of powder sugar.



Any leftover strawberry mixture can be used as a dipping sauce, topping for vanilla ice cream, or cheesecake. It can stay refrigerated for up to five days.





About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
