Puff Pastry Star Cookies

June 26, 2023
How about making these delicious cookies at home? They are super easy to make and very tasty!






All-purpose flour, for work surface
2 sheets (1 17.3-ounce package) Puff pastry, thawed
1 large Egg, beaten
1/4 c. Jam, jelly, or fruit preserves
Sanding sugar, for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. On a lightly floured work surface, roll each sheet of puff pastry into a 10- by 12-inch rectangle. Using a 3 1/2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out 12 stars from each sheet. Transfer to prepared baking sheets.
  2. Brush the points of half the stars with egg; carefully spoon jam (about 1 teaspoon) onto the center of each star. Using a 1 3/4-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out smaller star shapes from the centers of the remaining 12 larger stars. Place stars with the holes over the jam, doing your best to line up the points. Press edges gently to seal. Brush the tops with egg and sprinkle with sugar.
  3. Bake, rotating halfway through, until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly before serving. Cookies can be made 2 days ahead. Store, tightly covered, at room temperature.

Meet The Chef

At nine years old, Ben Gaffney asked if he could work alongside his father, a chef, at Congress Rotisserie in New Haven. The elder Gaffney put the boy to work washing dishes for two years, in the hope that it would discourage his interest in the restaurant business.

But a calling is a calling. Ben Gaffney has spent his life since then pursuing the wonders of food, bringing Middlefield along for the ride as chef at Lyman Orchards since 2017.
