Dessert First on Food Network. On that particular episode, the host was making "pocket pies" with almond, cherry and pear filling. I've worked with puff pastry before, and I decided it would be a good treat.
Being a lazy pants, I didn't measure the pastry as carefully as Anne did, so, at first, I ended up with seven pocket pies for eight people. Oops. So, one got cut into two. They ended up being so huge that everyone ended up having half of one. I also added a little water to the egg wash, and upped the amount of cherries in the filling, since I was serving it to some cherry fans.
My mother has requested a pear and blueberry pocket pie when she's in the area next, so keep an eye out for it!
You can also use this for savory dishes - I bet it would be particularly good with tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach and feta. It's not vegan, given how loaded down it is with butter, but vegetarians can enjoy it.
