Quince Pillows.

Return to recipe list

    Rustic and traditional: Already our great-grandparents loved these quince pillows. They called them "Chüttene-Chrusi-Chräpfli". Say this three times fast.

    Recipe for about 30 pillows

  • 2 pieces of pre-rolled puff pastry (26 x 42 cm)
  • 400 g of quince jam
  • 2 egg yolks

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
  • Put one dough onto a baking tray
  • Spread the the quince jam onto the dough
  • Put the second dough on top of it, press on the edges
  • Brush the upper side of the dough with egg yolk
  • Divide into squares (4 x 4 cm) with a dough cutter
  • Imporant: cut rapidly, so the dough will not stick to the cutter
  • Bake the pillows in the middle of the oven for 25 - 30 minutes
  • Chill the baked dough; afterwards it's easy to break the quince pillows apart

  • It's okay for the jam to leak out of the pillows a bit. Once grown cold it will become hard.
  • A long ruler helps for cutting the pillows.
