ingredients

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.

    These were quick and easy. I had puff pastry I needed to use up but no apricot jam :( I used seedless raspberry instead and they were very nice. Crispy, flaky and not overly sweet. Looked quite pretty with the glaze, too! Thanks for sharing!

    EASY and excellent. Can be made with almost any filling you can fit into the strip, such as almond, ham and cheese, or ruglah filling.

    I was SO confused when I saw the title of these and then the photos.... I was reading the method over and over and thinking "it's telling me to twist...?" - but I made them as the recipe stated (even got a tape measure out to measure the 5x3 inch strips!) and they turned out great. Perfect amount of flaky pastry to apricot flavour. These are super addictive and very tasty; will definitely be making them again and might even try different flavour jams!
