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
- 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.
