Decorating Tips:

For a visually appealing finish, sprinkle baked goods with powdered sugar just before serving. If you're feeling extra creative, garnish them with fresh cherry halves or mint leaves to enhance their aesthetic and taste profile.


  • Puff pastry, cut into large squares
  • For the cream filling:
    • 200 grams of whipped cream
    • 250 grams of mascarpone
    • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar (adjust sweetness to taste)
  • For the cherry compote:
    • 150 grams of frozen cherries
    • A little sugar, to taste
    • A small amount of cornstarch mixed with cold water


  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit).
  2. Fold the puff pastry squares into triangles, sealing the edges. Place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and brush with milk.
  3. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Take out of the oven and let cool down.
  4. Once cooled, carefully cut them and pour a small amount of mascarpone cream over them.
  5. Prepare the cherry compote by cooking the cherries with a little sugar in a saucepan over low heat. Once reduced slightly, stir in cornstarch mixture until thickened. Remove from heat and let cool.
  6. Pour the cherry compote over the cream-filled pastries.
  7. Sprinkle with powdered sugar for a soft, decorative finish.

Enjoy this enchanting and delicious treat!
