You know there is a set of recipes buried in your Pinterest boards that you’ve wanted to do for a long long time? Well, this Puff Pastry treat definitely falls into that category. I took the recipe by Teri and Jenny from Spoon Fork Bacon and gave it a twist. I went on vacation back in early September, and one of the things I brought back from the states were cooking goodies: I got some spice mills from Whole Foods Market, including one that I’m using here that has Sugar, Cocoa and Chili flakes, and as suggested there it goes on top of baked goodies. I also got some Biscoff spread. I wanted to know what the fuss was all about and man, was the fussing all true. It is like a spreadable cookie… it’s just *so* good. Glad I used them up both together in this recipe. Also, I got to use a local Jelly made out of Coffee Cherries that I just tried a couple of weeks ago at Dieseldorff Kaffee. All around, an amazing set of ingredients that were a huge hit!
Since I had one pound of puff pastry, I used half for a set of puff pastry strips, and the other half I divided it in two and paired it with the Nutella and the Biscoff Spread thinking those were not going to be so popular. You know how popular where they? I baked them Saturday morning, and by sunday night they were gone! Dad says that these are definitely Dad-approved. I might have to bake some again. Sooner than later.
The beauty of this recipe, is that it’s so quick to prepare, you can prepare it in case you’re having unexpected guests one afternoon. You can get the puff pastry from a pastry shop and not have to about preparing it yourself. And, if you don’t have Coffee Cherry Jelly, Nutella or Biscoff, you can replace them with any Jelly or Jam you have at hand!
