Whisk 200 g of thick sour cream, 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons of flour, ordinary sugar to taste and a little vanilla. The resulting mass is filled with plums in the form and put in the oven at 180 °C for 30-35 minutes. That’s it, the lazy plum pie is ready!

Rolls with tender plums are a simple, but very original idea. The main thing is that there is a puff pastry “We Eat at Home”at hand. It is prepared according to a traditional recipe with the addition of Altai oil. This gives the finished pastry a special tenderness and refined creamy notes.

We remove the bones from 200 g of plums, cut the pulp into slices. We roll out the plate of the finished dough into a rectangular layer with a thickness of 5-6 mm. Evenly spread the pieces of plum on it, sprinkle with sugar. We roll the dough with the filling into a roll and cut it in small portions. Each roll is greased with beaten egg yolk and baked for 15-20 minutes in the oven at 180 °C.  You can serve it with powdered sugar or whipped cream. Even in the cooled form, the rolls will be just as tender and crispy.

Croissants with a surprise

Croissants are beautiful because you can take any filling for them. And plums are perfect for this role. The puff pastry “We Eat at Home” for homemade croissants will help us to prepare the famous French pastries with an original fruit filling. It is already divided into layers, which are enough to cut diagonally, and you can spread the filling. One package is designed for 8 lush croissants. This treat is just enough for a big family tea party.

So, we cut each of the four layers into two identical triangles and lightly sprinkle with flour on both sides. Instead of fresh fruit, it is better to take a thick plum jam. We spread 1 tbsp of jam on a wide part of the triangles, melt a piece of white chocolate, roll them into rolls and bend the ends in the form of a crescent. Lubricate the croissants with a mixture of 2 tablespoons of milk and yolk, place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake for 25 minutes in the oven at 180 °C. Before serving, sprinkle the still warm croissants with powdered sugar.
