Puff Pastry Sweet Treats

  • Preparation 5 – 10 minutes
  • Baking 10 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius

Ingredients:

1 x rolls Puff pastry

1 cup Sugar/ Castor Sugar

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 Egg

 

How to:

Roll the defrosted puff pastry out onto the counter and cut 20 or so strips.

Now we need to weave the strips together. This is very simple.

Place half the strips horizontally and fold every second strip back from the middle as shown below.

Place one strip vertically and fold the rest back, now repeat the process. Your complete weaved sheet of pastry should look something like this.

Use a cookie cutter to cut the pastry into circles or just cut into squares with a knife. This is all up to how you like it. I like the round ones better because they look good!

Beat the egg and spread egg onto pastry.

Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle a good amount of the sugar onto the pastry. Don’t be shy, these are sweet treats and they need a good amount of sugar to make sweet.

Now for the remainder of pastry (or you can just use another roll of pastry). Pour the rest of the sugar onto the leftover sheet of pastry and roll the pastry from both sides till they meet in the middle.

 

 

 

 

 

Then cut it into 1 cm pieces. Lay flat on the baking and sprinkle with some more sugar.

Bake in a pre-heated oven for 10 minutes or till slightly brown. Let it cool down completely before serving.

The sweet treats are super tasty with hot beverages like tea or coffee.
