Peach Puff Pastry

Hi everyone!  Here is my first recipe on this blog.  The picture below is my peach puff pastry.  Here are the ingredients:

1 large peach
¼ cup of apricot jam
¼ cup unsweetened coconut
¼ cup slivered almonds
½ cup sugar
flour for dusting pan
pie pan
1 sheet of puff pastry
OK! Now, here's what you do!

This is a fun quick and easy recipe that takes only about 30 minutes!  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Take out a large cutting board and lay out one sheet of puff pastry onto it.  If your puff pastry is frozen then easy answer...thaw it!  Once you have it on the cutting board then roll it out with a rolling pin.  Take the rolling pin and wrap the puff pastry around the rolling pin.  Once it’s wrapped around, unwrap it onto the pie pan that is lightly dusted with flour.  This is a quicker and cleaner way to get the puff pastry onto the pie pan without making a big mess.  Then you sprinkle the sugar all over the puff pastry making it have a little bit of sweetness in every bite.  After you are done with the sugar, cut up the peach in crescent moon shapes and lie them going all the way around the pastry till you get to the middle.  Then again add the same amount of sugar to the peach slices.  Then to make this pie even better add the unsweetened coconut flakes, and the slivered almonds.   Once the oven is ready just pop this pie in, and cook it for about 30 minutes.  Now, take out your apricot jam and heat it up in the microwave for about 20 seconds and then take it out and stir it up.  Make sure most of the chunks from the jam are all blended in.  When the pie is done, simply spread the jam over the top!  And there you have it my Peach Puff Pastry!!
