That craving. It just hits you. Mmmm peanut butter and pickles. What a strange combination. It started out one day when my friend said that he tried peanut butter and pickles. Eww. I heard about that combination and always wondered who on earth would like it. But of course I had to try it. The first time I tried it, I had dill pickles and peanut butter. Meh. It was alright. Not anything I would crave. This started my curiosity on what was so great about this combination. I started searching on the internet. Maybe it wasn’t a dill pickle but a sweet bread and butter pickle. Then came attempt #2. Bread and butter pickles and peanut butter. Much better but still I wouldn’t crave this. Later that week was my friend’s birthday party and I decided I wanted to make something to bring to his party. We have been joking about peanut butter and pickles all week with him so I thought it would be funny to make a peanut butter and pickle pastry. Back onto the internet. Did this actually exist? Well I couldn’t find any recipes so I decided to make my own up.
This is a simple straight forward recipe. Buy premade puff pastry. This stuff is amazing. Making your own puff pastry is very time consuming. Make sure you defrost the puff pastry overnight in the refrigerator.
For the filling, get some all natural no sugar, no salt peanut butter and some maple syrup. Mix about 1 cup peanut butter and 1-2 tbsp of maple syrup depending on how sweet you like lit.
Next chop up your bread and butter pickles. Make them chunky. You want equal proportions of pickles and peanut butter.
Mix the pickles and peanut butter together and set in the fridge to all to firm up.
Meanwhile roll out the puff pastry. Cut the pastry into nine squares.
Place a tbsp of filling onto each square. Now time to fold and seal each triangle. I used water along the edge of the pastry to make a tight seal. Press the edge firmly.
Place the triangles on to parchment paper and prepare an egg wash. Beat one full egg and use a pastry brush to coat the tops of each triangle.
Bake in the 350 Degree oven for about 20 minutes until the pastry become nice and golden brown.
