Rustic Blueberry Pastry

mirtillo pasticceria rustico
This rustic blueberry pastry is simple and fast! Three-ingredient filling and help from the store (frozen puff pastry) makes this sweet treat ideal for a weeknight dessert or for last-minute company.

Use the puff pastry sheet as you would homemade dough. Allow it to thaw in the fridge overnight or at room temperature a few hours before using. When it’s come to room temperature, roll out only slightly on a floured surface and fill with any fruit you have on hand.

This goes perfectly with a glass of dessert wine or a cup of coffee.
My new favorite coffee is Torrefazione Italia!
