Blackberry Pockets

Another blackberry recipe is on the role today … Well I wish I’ll have all the credits but the dough I haven’t done it myself but I bought it. It’s a very good choice and I will gladly recommend it.

Ingredients ( for 9 pockets )

  • 1 package butter puff pastry
  • 3 medium apples
  • 2 cups blackberries
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 ( 1.5 ) cup brown sugar
  • poppy seeds ( optional )

Take the pie dough out from freezer with two hours before using it or leave it in the fridge overnight.

Peel and cut the apples in small pieces. Wash and drain the blackberries.

Put them together in a pot. Add sugar and lemon juice and let them simmer on low heat for about 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Drain the mixture and let it cool down, but keep the syrup. You have so many choices to use it : over ice cream or you can make a natural juice.

Preheat the oven to 375F.

Unroll one pie dough directly in the tin with the cooking sheet that was provided. Place 9 tablespoons of berry mixture over the dough. Cover with the second sheet and form 9 pockets.

Sprinkle with poppy seeds and bake it for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Let them cool down and enjoy them.

As usual, I was craving them too bad so I had a bite right away … yummy !!!

Bon Appetite !

  1. I used to buy ready-made berry-strudels. Surprisingly enough they had apples inside to make the filling look richer. I was angry for that trick, but I guess this combination has been tested long time ago and it really works!

    1. Dear Zoe,

      I do think it works so wonderful for both: taste and texture. For me was just a fortuity that I used this combination but a was so happy it happened !!! The pockets turn out so delicious … I only regret I couldn’t share then with you … maybe next time 🙂
