Peach Blossom Pastry #recipe #bookgiveaway @foulplayauthor


Today our kitchen is delighted to welcome Susan Furlong with her new book PEACHES AND SCREAM, and a delicious peachy recipe, just ripe for the season. Welcome Susan!

Susan: Thanks For inviting me to be on Mystery Lover’s Kitchen today. This has always been one of my favorite sites and I’m thrilled to be here.

Peaches are still in season, so it’s not too late to squeeze in one more peach recipe! My friend, Sandra, shared this recipe with me and I’d like to pass it along to all of you. It’s super easy, quick, and pretty enough to serve to guests. Pair it with a glass of iced-tea and you have the perfect treat for summer visitors. 

After traveling the world, Nola Mae Harper, the main character of Peaches and Scream, is glad to be back home in Cays Mill, Georgia. And one of the best things about coming home is all the southern delish food—especially this peachy pastry made by her friend and bakery owner, Ezra Sugar. 



Peach Blossom Pastry

Ingredients:

1 package of puff pastry sheets

1 lemon, juiced

1 peach, sliced

2 tablespoons of peach jam

2 tablespoons of flour for rolling out dough

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice one peach into thin slices and cover with the juice of half a lemon.



Thaw one sheet of pastry dough to room temperature, roll out, and cut widthwise into 6 evenly proportioned strips. Take two of the strips and spread peach preserves on one and place peaches slices on the other. Combine the two strips and pinch the edges together. 

Roll together and place inside a muffin tin. Separate the edges to form a flower appearance. Brush the outside with a thin coat of peach preserves.









Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Double check to make sure the inside dough is fully cooked before serving. Some ovens may require a longer baking time at a slightly lower temperature. Makes three peach blossoms.




And here's a cool video showing the whole recipe!



Susan will be giving a book away today to one lucky commenter.

  17. Della. Our family is always looking for new peach recipes. That fruit is one of our favorites. In the winter if we can't get fresh we use canned. Not quite as good but still. So we are doing your blossom recipe tomorrow. Love the cover. Here's to hoping.
