Valentine’s Day doesn’t need to be overly fussy or expensive.

Simple breakfast pastries served on a pretty table decorated with nick nacks found around the house can be really romantic.

I threw this table together this morning with mismatched china I got at goodwill a while back, pink heart cookie cutters to add to the romance, and a few other vintage items I already had like old books and an old camera.

I also put these pastries together last night and froze them.  Then just popped them in the oven this morning.  Easy peasy.

Strawberry Breakfast Pastries


  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • good quality strawberry preserves (or whatever flavor you prefer)
  • water
  • toothpick


  1. With the puff pastry still folded in thirds, roll out on a lightly floured surface to about a 15 inch by 10 inch rectangle.
  2. Cut into 10 squares about equal in size.
  3. Put about 2 tbsp of preserves in the middle of a square.
  4. Brush the outside of the pastry with water and top with another square.
  5. Use the tongs of a fork to crimp the edges.
  6. Use a toothpick to poke steam holes in the shape of a heart.
  7. Freeze until ready to use.
  8. Bake frozen pastries in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Serve warm.
