Prep Time: 10 mins

Total Time: 40 mins

Serves 8



Before we start baking our delightful pastry, let’s gather all the ingredients required:

  • 1 (17.25 oz.) package of frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 5 cups of milk
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1/4 cup of raisins
  • 1/4 cup of slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup of pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup of diced pistachio nuts
  • 1/4 cup of sweetened, flaked coconut



Now, let’s dive into the cooking process and create this scrumptious Raisin, Pine Nut Pastry:

  1. Preheat the Oven: First things first, set your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius) to preheat while you prepare the pastry.
  2. Prepare the Puff Pastry: Roll out the thawed puff pastry on a baking sheet. Make sure it’s evenly spread out.
  3. Bake the Pastry: Place the baking sheet with the puff pastry in the preheated oven. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the pastry turns a beautiful golden brown. Keep an eye on it to avoid overcooking.
  4. Break and Combine: Once the puff pastry is baked to perfection, break it into pieces. In a separate bowl, combine the broken pastry pieces with a mixture of raisins, slivered almonds, pine nuts, diced pistachio nuts, and sweetened, flaked coconut. Mix them well to evenly distribute the flavors and textures.
  5. Prepare the Milk Mixture: In a saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat. Add the white sugar and vanilla extract to the milk. Stir continuously until the sugar is fully dissolved and the milk is hot but not boiling.
  6. Pour the Milk Over the Pastry: Carefully pour the hot milk mixture over the pastry and nut mixture. Make sure to evenly distribute it so that all the pastry pieces soak up the delicious milk.
  7. Bake Again: Place the casserole dish with the pastry mixture and milk back in the preheated oven. Bake for another 15 minutes, allowing the pastry to absorb the flavors of the milk.
  8. Broil for a Crispy Top: After baking, switch your oven to the broil setting and broil the pastry for about 2 minutes. Keep a close eye on it to ensure it gets a nice, crispy top without burning.
  9. Cool and Serve: Once the pastry is beautifully browned and crispy, remove it from the oven. Allow it to cool for about 5 minutes.
  10. Serve and Enjoy: Finally, serve your Raisin, Pine Nut Pastry while it’s still warm. Each bite is a delightful combination of sweet, crunchy, and nutty flavors. It’s perfect for enjoying as a dessert or with a cup of tea or coffee.
