Videeke aka Koninginnenhapje aka Vol au Vent and Jam Pastries

There is nothing better than warm comfort food when it is cold and rainy outside! Tonight Koen and I ate a typically Belgian dish with many different names, depending on where you live –  videeke, koninginnenhapje, and vol au vent. Because I live in Flanders, I will be calling it videeke.  Videeke is a delicious puff pastry filled with a chicken and mushroom creamy filling.  I like to think of it as a Belgian chicken pot pie!  Because we made the pastry ourselves, there was a lot of dough left over. Luckily we visited Koen’s Oma (Grandmother) yesterday and were able to take with us a jar of homemade strawberry jam – so I made jam pastries for dessert!

Videeke and Jam Pastries

Koen made the filling for the videeke, and I was able to do the fun part – the pastry shells!

Videeke – yum!

Because I had to make so many rings for the pastry, I was left with the small inner circles. As I mentioned above, we received homemade strawberry jam from Koen’s Oma yesterday. Rather than throw the excess dough away, I made jam pastries!
