This is a popular recipe for gluten-free Finnish Christmas stars – tasty gluten-free cookies from Sweden’s eastern neighbour, filled with lovely plum jam and encased in gluten-free pastry. “Hyvä!” as they would say in Finland!

40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 packet gluten-free puff pastry
  • set plum jam (ready-made or make your own)
  • eggs for brushing
  • icing sugar for decoration

HOW TO MAKE IT

  • Preheat the oven to 225°C.

  • Roll out the gluten-free pastry until it’s 2 mm thick and cut into squares around 8 cm by 8 cm.

  • Make an incision into the centre from each corner of the square (leave 2 cm in the middle uncut) and add a dollop of set plum jam in the middle.

  • Fold alternate corners into the middle and press down gently. Some water will help to stick the corners. Brush with beaten egg and bake for around 10 minutes at 225°C until the gluten-free Finnish Christmas stars are golden brown.

  • Sprinkle with icing sugar once the gluten-free Finnish Christmas stars have cooled.

  • Tip! Our gluten-free puff pastry is easiest to bake when it’s still a little cold. For best results, leave the dough to thaw in the refrigerator for about 8 hours before baking.
