    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    FOR THE DOUGH

    • 100 g plain flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt, to taste
    • 50 g butter, Chilled
    • 1/2 whole egg yolk, Beaten
    • 1 2/3 ounces water, Cooled
    • 1 cup fresh coconut oil, plus 2/3 a tablespoon coconut oil (for Frying)

    FOR THE MERINGUE

    • 1 whole egg white
    • 50 g sugar
    • 1 drop food coloring, pink
    • 1 tablespoon coloured candy sprinkles

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For the dough: Sift the flour. Place the flour and salt in a large bowl. Mix. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Next add approximately 1/2 of the egg yolk and the water. Mix well with your hands. Try to work quickly.
    2. 2
      Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 10 -15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Now take the chilled dough and roll out into a large square that is about 1/8 inch thick, using a rolling pin. Cut it into 12 round shapes (diameter 2 inches) using a pastry cutter or cookie cutter.
    4. 4
      Next take 6 of the rounds and, using a sharp knife, make straight little cuts in towards the center of the circle (don’t cut all the way through the circle – you are cutting about a half inch in towards the center, kind of like bicycle wheel spokes). Then take each of the 6 cut circles and place one on top of each of the uncut dough rounds (so you have a solid round underneath, and a bicycle wheel cut round on top). You can brush a little water in the center of the plain round first, in order to help the two pieces stick together. If needed, you can also place a wooden round stick through the center of the spoke round and the bottom one, to make them stay together.
    5. 5
      After that deep fry them in hot oil (over medium heat), until they are golden brown . Remove them from the oil onto absorbent paper to drain for a minute or two. As it fries, the top round should puff up like flower petals.
    6. 6
      For the meringue: Place the egg white and sugar in a bowl and whip the mixture using an electric hand mixer. After 5 minutes of whipping, add food coloring. Continue to beat the mixture until stiff and standing in peaks.
    7. 7
      After that take the cooled flower shaped pastries and get them ready to fill. Next put the meringue in a pastry bag with a piping tip and pipe the filling into the center of the appetizer. Next sprinkle some colored candy on top, if desired. I’ve done this in the photo above.
    8. 8
      Serve and enjoy.
