I've been experimenting with frozen puff pastry off and on for the past few months, and came upon these tasty sweet treats that only need three simple ingredients to make. These freeze well wrapped in wax paper, placed in a freezer container, and thawed at room temp or heated in the microwave for future treats.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Unfold puff pastry. Evenly spread 4 strips with jam then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the sugar and place each coated strip one on top of the other with the uncoated strip on top of all. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.
Very lightly butter two baking sheets if they are not non-stick. If you only have one baking sheet place half of the pastries in the next step back in the freezer until ready to bake.
Slice the jam filled pastry strip in to 1/4 inch thick slices, place on baking sheet(s) about 4 inches apart and sprinkle with the remaining sugar (1 tablespoon if baking in 2 batches).
Bake until puffy and golden, about 15 to 20 minutes. Allow pastries to cool and enjoy.

I have tried these too and they are a quick, fun dessert. Hot out of the oven with vanilla ice cream. So yummy! I have used the puff pastry, cut into triangles and filled with canned fruit pie filling, apple, blueberry, strawberry, wet the edges to seal bake on a cookie sheet sprayed with oil and bake until brown & puffy. Delicious!
