This afternoon I made Mini Croissants for afternoon tea. Based on what I could remember from Cathie's blog recipe here, I did apple/chocolate and mango/chocolate combos, and they were VERY simple.
Firstly cut up the pastry sheet into 4 triangles.
Then add the filling and roll it up. Here's the mango/choc combo.
And here's the apple/choc combo. It's fresh granny smith apple, just chopped up.
Then just roll them up like croissants. And brush with milk - I could have sprinkled sugar on top here, but I forgot.
And bake at 180 degrees celcius for about 25 mins or until nicely browned.
Serve with icecream or something equally yummy.
I love to bake, so I always think of cakes, biccies and sweets for afternoon tea. This is pretty much a dessert, so it was a very special afternoon.
I also did a Vegemite Cheese Twist with the 3rd sheet of pastry that I defrosted. It's equally simple.
Just spread puff pastry sheet with Vegemite and sprinkle with grated cheese, then fold in half.Chop up into slices - about 2-3 cm wide.
Twist and flatten just a bit, then brush with milk.
Bake for about 20 mins at 180 degrees celcius and voila!
Now, these are so simple I'm almost embarrassed to have posted so many photos. And how can anyone really go wrong with puff pastry. But I know they shouldn't be an everyday item.
Do you have any ideas for simple HEALTHY afternoon teas that I could feed hungry boys? I need a refresher and I'd love to know!
