What you need
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2/3 cup cold coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup ice cold water
What to do
- Preheat oven to 375 F.
- In a large bowl, mix flours, salt & sugar together. Cut in the cold coconut oil with a fork or pastry cutter until you see tiny pea-shaped pieces in the dough.
- Keep the dough cold! You can put your mixing bowl in the freezer to keep it cool before adding the rest of the ingredients.
- Mix in the vanilla & 1 tbsp at a time, add in the ice cold water (about 8-9 tbsp total). Your dough should be moist enough that you can form it into a ball without it flaking away, but not sticky.
- Roll out the dough into a very thin sheet (only a few mm thick), then cut into rectangles. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicon mat.
- On half of the dough rectangles, place one large tsp of jam in the center of each.
- Wet your fingers and moisten all around the perimeter of the dough (around the jam).
- Place another rectangle on top, and using your fork, crimp the edges to seal.
- Poke 3 sets of 3 holes into the top of the pastry with your fork.
- Place the baking sheet in the fridge to set for 20 minutes.
- Brush each pastry with butter.
- Bake in the oven for 22-26 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Let them cool for a few minutes.
- Top with icing for some extra sweetness, or eat as is!
Extra tip from Manuela: if you have an Airfryer, cook these there instead at 375 F for 5 minutes, flip, then add a few more minutes. They can burn easily, so be careful not to let them go for too long!
