Surprisingly, it’s super easy to make homemade flakies and these blackberry lilac flakies are stunningly beautiful and out of this world delicious! The recipe makes 12 and they last up to 5 days in the fridge.


Units Scale
  • 1 sheet (425g) puff pastry
  • egg wash (one egg mixed with a tablespoon of water)
  • lilac sugar (to sprinkle on top)
  • coarse sugar (to sprinkle on top)



  1. Make compote and let cool in the fridge while you bake your puff pastry.
  2. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  3. Roll out defrosted puff pastry and cut into 24 equal size rectangles, approx. 2″x 3″. Note: You can make them any size you like, just don’t go any smaller than 2″x3″.
  4. Place rectangles one inch apart on the prepared lined baking sheet.
  5. Using a pastry brush, brush each rectangle with egg wash and sprinkle 12 rectangles with a little lilac sugar and coarse sugar (I also added 3 lilac flowers from the lilac sugar).
  6. Bake the pastry for approx. 12-16 minutes or until puffed and light golden brown.
  7. Let cool on a cooling rack.
  8. In a large bowl add whipping cream and vanilla extract. Whip cream until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  9. Assemble flakies: take each unsugared pastry rectangle and turn it upside down so the flat side is facing up. You may need to trim the other side of the rectangle so it sits completely flat.
  10.  Add approx. a tablespoon of blackberry lilac compote (to the flat side) and pipe or spoon a layer of whipping cream on top. Take a sugared pastry rectangle and place it on top and gently sandwich together. Repeat until all the pastry is used.
  11. Dust the tops of each flakie with icing sugar.
  12. Let flakies sit for 10 minutes or so before enjoying.


Substitution: You can substitute the blackberry lilac compote for blackberry compote, blackberry jam, or blueberry jam. Just make sure the jam or compote isn’t too runny or it will spill out of the flakie.

Use a serrated knife to trim the bottom side of the flakies if they are too large or do not sit flat.

Flakies last up to 5 days stored in the fridge in an airtight container. Although they will not look as pretty, they still taste just as delicious.

You can easily double this recipe as most puff pastry packages come with 2 sheets or you can save the other frozen sheet for another recipe.
