DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (you will most likely need two baking sheets for 16 pastries).
  • Roll out one puff pastry sheet onto a lightly floured surface into a 12x10-inch rectangle, then cut in half lengthwise (I use a pizza cutter for this).
  • Cut each half crosswise into four 5x3-inch strips (for a total of 8 strips).
  • Spread each strip with about 1/2 tablespoon apricot jam, then fold the strips in half lengthwise to form 1-1/2-inch wide strips.
  • Twist each strip 3 times, then place on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Repeat with the remaining puff pastry (you should have 16 pastries when done, you might have to use two baking sheets.
  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Transfer the twists to a rack.
  • In a small bowl whisk together confectioners sugar, whipping cream and lemon juice; brush over the warm pastries.
