When I was making these, elephant ears or palmier was on my mind. But I end up making small replica of palmiers as I used half of the puff sheet and also cut wise I have left the pieces little fat.Anyways the end result was gone in one day, thanks to a very picky eater who loves to gorge on these fast foods. She is my DD and has demanded another batch....
Kids I tell you are so unpredictable. What goes in their mind who knows? She even helped me, sprinkling cinnamon powder and caster sugar over the pastry. And also in melting chocolates in M/W.
More of a play thing for her than some serious stuff. We made these way back when DD had long winter holidays.
These are quick to make and a great way to engage your child if one has nothing to do any positive or creative work or some challenging brain sensitizing stuff.
Now to the recipe-
Petite Cinnamon Puffs
- 1 package puff pastry
- 3-4 tbs of cinnamon powder
- 3-5 tbs of caster sugar
- For the glaze
- ½ cup of milk
- 2 tbs of double cream
- 3-4 tbs of icing sugar
- Line up a baking tray with grease proof paper.
- Preheat oven at 175 deg C.
- Cut the sheet into half.Roll out little bit to spread it out. Sprinkle generously cinnamon powder+caster sugar.
- From one end start rolling the sheet towards middle. When you have reached to the middle, start working from the opposite end coming towards the middle of the sheet. The shape will look elephant ears.
- Now you can refrigerate it for half an hour to firm up the shape. I didn’t this time.
- Bake the petite puffs for 20 mints or just barely golden. Take out and let them cool a bit.
- Now make the glaze
- Mix in milk,cream and icing sugar very well.
- Drizzle this over the cooled petite palmiers.If you wish you can drizzle chocolate as well.
- I happen to put some chocolate shavings this time.
- Serve as snacks or breakfast accompaniment what ever way you prefer.
