  • 1 teaspoon Salted Butter
  • 2 cups medium diced Onions
  • 1 to 1.5 cups chopped fresh Figs
  • Salt and pepper to preference
  • 1 sheet of refrigerated Puff Pastry dough make sure it is cold and not frozen
  • ¼ cup Apricot Jam


  • Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and melt the butter. Sauté the onions and figs until they are soft and caramelized. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Unfold the puff pastry and cut into 8 (or number of your choosing) pieces and set onto the parchment paper lined tray.
  • Spoon some of the onion-fig mixture onto one side of each puff pastry piece. Repeat until all of the filling has been evenly used.
  • Fold over the puff pastry dough and pinch the long end closed. The ends will still be open as the filling will not leak out.
  • Brush the tops with a little bit of apricot jam.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until the pastries have completely puffed up and are golden brown.
  • Allow the pastries to rest for a few minutes before serving and enjoying.


Yield: 8 small hand pies depending on the size of your pastry dough and how many pieces you choose to cut it into. Adjust cooking time accordingly.
