Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 4 min.

Preheat the oven to 430°F (220°C).

Roll out the puff pastry and cut circles about 3-4 inches (8-10 cm) diameter, allowing one per peson. A cutter is the best way to do this.

Lay the circles on a baking sheet and dust with icing sugar. Then lay a second baking sheet or wire rack on top to prevent them puffing up too much in the oven.

Stage 2 - 25 min.
