GFC yummies

Here we are, another little recipe I make rather a lot these days!

Very economical, tasty and seriously quick.  I prepare these in the time it takes the oven to pre-heat, and they’re out of the oven and ready to eat about 18 minutes later.

Just enough time to prepare for world domination.. mwahahahahahaha…

Actually, they are versatile as well.  I often make them with a savoury filling instead, something like cheese and chives, or chilli salsa and cream cheese, whatever I have hanging about the fridge really!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 frozen sheets of puff pastry
  • 1 C sultanas
  • 2 Tb brown sugar
  • zest of ½ a lemon
  • pinch each of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg per sheet

What to do:

  1. Fill and boil the kettle.
  2. Lay out the sheets of frozen puff pastry and cover with a damp cloth.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200°C (~400°F).
  4. Put the sultanas in a bowl and cover with boiling water (add a slice of orange if you happen to have it lying around like I did!)
  5. Grease an oven tray with a smidge of olive oil or use baking paper.
  6. Crank on some tunes (Jimi will do fine), make a cuppa and wait till the pastry has defrosted (about 5 mins).
  7. Drain sultanas (discard orange slice, or eat it if you’re that way inclined) and sprinkle them on the puff pastry sheets.
  8. Sprinkle on 1 Tb of the brown sugar per sheet.
  9. Grate a little lemon zest onto each sheet.
  10. Sprinkle on a pinch each of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg per sheet.
  11. Roll up each puff pastry sheet (not too tightly, as it puffs up in the oven… surprisingly).
  12. Slice each roll into 8 even rounds and spread out on the greased baking tray with the cut sides facing up.
  13. Bake for 18 minutes (or until nice and puffy and brown).
  14. Take them off the baking tray while still warm before the sugar hardens on the tray and makes them impossible to remove.

Bon appetit!
