Cooking With Your Toddler - Caramelised Puff Pastry Biscuits

I came across this recipe recently on Working London Mummy. It is a fabulous blog with lovely recipes and amazing photography created by a wonderful Mummy (to Miss Munchkin) working in London as a Paediatrician (hence the name of the blog) and married to a French ex Chef.

The recipe is so simple and perfect to try with Toddlers, it's just a bit of rolling and sprinkling and baking, perfect for Toddlers that are easily distracted with zero concentration span (like mine).

Caramelised Puffy Pastry Biscuits

Pack of ready made Puff Pastry - I used ready rolled as I had some in the freezer
Icing Sugar

  • Dust your worktop with icing sugar so the pastry doesn't stick

  • Roll the puff pastry out as thin as you can (if not already rolled)

  • (We sprinkled with cinnamon and icing sugar here although the original recipe doesn't tell you to do this)

  • Roll it up into a cylinder and cut into thin slices with a sharp knife (probably best not to let your Toddler use the sharp knife & instead give them some pastry to roll to distract their attention from the knife!)

  • Roll the slices flat and then put in the freezer for 1.5 hrs to stop them shrinking when you bake them (or is you have a very impatient toddler like mine just bung them in the over without putting them in the freezer - he didn't care whether they'd shrink or not, he just wanted to eat them)

  • Then we sprinkled more cinnamon sugar

  • Bake in a preheated (200 degrees C) oven until they're golden
  • If the biscuits rise in the middle you can flatten them down with a pan (or other object large enough)
  • Dust with cinnamon and sugar and eat warm

You can see Working London Mummy's recipe here, and also her fab photography. Her biscuits look so much more impressive than ours but Jack enjoyed making them which is what it's all about.

Come back next Friday for more recipes.

  1. I cooked with my toddler for the first time yesterday! This sounds like a good one to try but you can't get ready rolled pasty easily (or cheaply!) in Cyprus - I'd better get making my own first!

  2. I'm not sure how easy it is to make, I've seen 'Rough puff pastry' which I think is much easier & I'm sure would do the job - there's one here :

    I will be doing a linky on last Friday of each month so you can join in with your own toddler cooking experiences

    Thanks for trying it out!! hope it was less messy than our attempt!

  4. Thanks for sharing the recipe - ours wasn't too messy, helped by the ready rolled pastry no doubt!

  5. Was going to message you as have a friend and their toddler coming over on Wednesday and we're going to bake with them and needed inspiration. Will add to the linky when we're done, thanks, knew I could count on you to help ;)

  6. that's great! Look forward to seeing your creations - have a look through my recipes for some inspiration

    Have fun, and don't overdo it!! x

  7. That looks like the easiest thing ever! Need to get me some pastry :)

  8. don't do what I did.....told Jack 'lets do some cooking'...then realised the pastry was still in the freezer!
