1. Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry us widely available the TJ Brand is good too

 

not sure what Whole Paycheck carries for PP.

I have bought all kinds of brands over the years even store brands I just look at the ingredients and buy which ever one has the least amount of chemicals in it.

Results are all about the same no mater the brand.

Ask your local pastry shop or baker if they will sell you what you need. Many will if you ask but they may use frozen PP too.

Options are:

raspberry
sour cherry
apricot
peach

I like the red ones for color contrast but I also love the taste of peach and apricot...

A fruit compote would work a little better I am guessing you are looking for a pie filling type consistency. Preserves will work but may give a bit more liquid when heated then you may want.

A spicy peach/apricot compote would be interesting...
