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