Coconut Syrup

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 tsp coconut extract



  • Carefully unfold pastry sheet and drizzle with syrup or spread with a thin layer of jam.  Top with an even layer of blueberries and sprinkle with brown sugar. 
  • Starting from the long side, carefully roll dough into a log, as tightly as possible, tucking any stray blueberries back inside as you go.  With roll seam side down cut in half, then cut the halves in half again, then cut these into thick slices.  You should have 12-14. 
  • Gently transfer slices to prepared pan.  Top with almond slices. Bake for 12 minutes, check, and continue baking a few more minutes until pastry is done and golden.  Juice will run from slices during baking.

Coconut Syrup

  • Put sugar, corn syrup and cream in a sauce pan and bring to a gentle boil.  Boil for 3 minutes, stirring and watching carefully so it doesn’t boil over.  Remove from heat and stir in coconut extract.  Pour syrup into a jar, decanter or squeeze bottle and refrigerate.  Makes 2 cups


Let syrup come to room temperature for easy pouring [or microwave 20-30 seconds]
