Easy Rose Jam Filled Puff Pastry Croissants

Another Polish dessert recipe today and a super easy and quick one, perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Not that yesterday’s Polish Nalesniki were difficult to make, they are very easy as well, but these croissants with jam or jelly can hardly be topped when it comes to quick and easy dessert recipes.

Easy Rose Jam Filled Puff Pastry Croissants

What do you need?

Puff pastry:

  • I used ready bought and ready-rolled puff pastry, which you can find in the refrigerator section of the supermarket.
  • You could make it with homemade puff pastry as well, it would probably be even better, but I still haven’t got to making my own puff pastry. Buying it is just so easy and it tastes so good…
  • Frozen puff pastry can be used as well, just regard the packet’s instructions concerning the rolling and the baking time of the pastry.
  • The quantities I used are not so important. Make as much as you want. Buy as much puff pastry as you need, open a jar of jam and keep going until you think you have enough.

Jam or jelly:

  • I made these jam croissants with rose petal jam, because this is the way my Polish friend’s family makes it and because I absolutely love rose jam, it has an amazing flavor that I cannot find in any other sort of jam.
  • But, if you cannot find it or for some reason, you do not like rose petal jam, you can definitely replace it with any other sort of jam.
  • The only thing I would have to say in this matter is that maybe you should go for a stiffer kind of jam, a runnier jam will create a bit of a mess as it will ooze out of the croissants during the baking process.
  • I know that for a fact, as part of the croissants I have made were filled with red currant jelly. The resulting croissants were also delicious, but kind of messy and sticky due to that runny filling.

Baking time for the jam croissants

  • The baking time depends on the kind of puff pastry you use, just check the packet’s instructions.
  • Mine needed about 20 minutes, keep an eye on them, they should be deeply golden.

  • 2 sheets puff pastry, ready-rolled Note 1
  • jam or jelly as needed, Note 2
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • icing sugar for dusting


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius/ 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line one or two baking trays (depending on how many croissants you make) with baking paper.
  • Cut pastry: Unroll the puff pastry. Cut the rectangle in half lengthwise, then cut each rectangle into triangles – see picture.
  • Fill and form croissants: Place about 1 teaspoon of jam at the base of each triangle and roll up the croissants starting at the bottom. Place the croissants on the prepared baking tray with the seam facing down. Bend in the edges to create a crescent shape.
  • Egg wash: Beat the egg yolk and the milk in a small bowl using a fork. Brush the croissants with the egg mixture.
  • Bake for about 17 – 20 minutes or until deeply golden (check the packet's instructions regarding the baking time as well).
  • Let cool on a wire rack and dust with icing sugar just before serving.


  1. The puff pastry I use is only refrigerated and already rolled. If using frozen pastry, let it thaw and then roll it to a rectangle.
  2. The original Polish recipe uses rose petal jam or jelly, which is amazing! But any other sort of jam and jelly is fine.

I own a food mill because I wanted to make that thick jam for similar crescent rolls. Plump dried apricots or prunes in hot water, drain, run through the food mill and get a thick non-runny filling. Only later did I find out it also works for making applesauce.

Hi Laura. That sounds great, I have never made jam with dried fruits myself, but I am sure they taste great. I should try it, I suppose the consistency would be good for filling the croissants.

Rose jam is really special, you should definitely try if you find it, but if not, you can make these croissants with any sort of jam you like.

I'm a picker and I would be one of the ones who comes back for more of these every few minutes. I like that they have just the right amount of sweetness, not overly sweet. I have never heard of rose jam. It sounds so interesting!

Oh, rose jam is amazing. Really flavorful, you can actually taste the roses. I absolutely love it and I am planning it to make it next summer. A lot of work with picking all those petals, but it is worth it! :)

Hi Adina - I discovered this rose jam when we were in Romania this past summer. When we were staying at a retreat center, the camp director took me and a few friends grocery shopping. He highly recommended the rose jam - said his wife buys it for Christmas gifts. Say no more!!! I got a few jars.... AND GAVE THEM ALL AWAY for Christmas gifts. Wish I hadn't, I never got a taste and now I can't make these pastries. Maybe I can find some online. Your pastries look extra delicious and now I'm craving them! xo

Too bad you gave them all away, jam rose is really amazing. You should try making it, if you find the right roses.
