To make the homemade snacks, Angela sliced the puff pastry sheets into squares and triangles then spooned the jam into the centre.

The raspberries were then placed on top and the corners of the square pastry pieces were folded into the centre to create little pockets.

The pastries were placed in a pre-heated oven and cooked until golden brown before being served with a dusting of icing sugar on top.   

Angela also made a few pastries for herself but used cream cheese instead of jam.

‘Cream cheese was sweetened slight with icing sugar,’ she wrote, adding: ‘Just doing a test, turned out great.’

Not only did the snacks look delicious but they would be cheap to make, as Angela only used products purchased from Aldi.

‘Yum I did this today but with ham, cheese and chutney for lunch,’ another said.
