Arawak Farm Jamaican-Style Fruit Patties

"Patties" are a Jamaican pastry dessert: a hand pie.

1 ½ cupsAll-purpose flour
½ teaspoon Sugar
¼ teaspoonKosher salt
½ cup (1 stick)Butter, unsalted, chilled, cut into 1/2" pieces
Arawak Farm Cranberry-Peach, Blue-Blackberry, or Mango-Peach Spicy Fruit Spread


To make the crust:

Pulse flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor. Add butter and pulse until the texture of very coarse meal.

Add cup ice water. Pulse, adding more water if dry, until dough comes together in clumps.

Form into a square, wrap in plastic, and chill until firm, about 2 hours.

To make patties:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Let dough stand at room temperature 15 minutes before rolling out. Roll dough into a 15x 12 rectangle, then cut into six (6) smaller rectangles. Brush the edges with water.

Spoon your choice of Arawak Farm Fruit Spread onto half of each rectangle, leaving the edges clear.

Fold the dough over the filling and press down firmly on the edges with fingers or a fork to seal. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, brush with an egg wash and sprinkle with raw sugar.

Bake patties for 35 - 40 minutes, rotating baking sheet halfway through, until juices are bubbling and pastry is golden brown.

Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.


The crust recipe makes enough for 6 hand pies.
