    Step 2

    Roll out pastry onto a sheet of parchment pre-dusted with flour. This will make it easier to move your parcels plus make it easier to clean up...bonus. Make sure to fix any tears in the pastry.

    *Tip: Don't have a rolling pin? Wrap a wine bottle in cling film and dust with flour. Works great.

  • Step 3

    Cut the rolled out sheet into 6 squares.

    Put a teaspoon of jam in the middle of each square. Spread the jam into a thin layer over the pastry leaving a 15cm boarder.

    Step 5

    Now place the strawberries on top of the jam on one half of each square keeping your boarder. Sprinkle a little icing sugar over the strawberries.

  • Step 6

    Whisk the egg and brush the egg along the edges of each square. Taking each square fold the side without strawberries over the other, forming a rectangle. Press down the edges to seal your parcels.

  • Step 7

    Move your parcels from the parchment and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush the rest of the whisked egg over each parcel. Then pierce the top of each one with 4 little holes to allow trapped air to release during baking...this will help prevent your pillows from bursting in the oven.
