I made these mincemeat puff pastry swirls last weekend and just had to share them as they are so simple yet so impressive looking. They’re perfect if you’ve got friends coming round and need to whip up a tasty hot treat, so long as you don’t mind a bit of pastry on the carpet.
Firstly, you need a packet of ready rolled puff pastry. Unroll it, but leave it on the baking parchment. Spread it with whatever you fancy – jam, mincemeat, or perhaps even some of my home-made lemon curd? We went for mincemeat as I have been planning my #WinChristmas giveaway this week and it has been making me feel rather festive.
Once your pastry is covered, roll up the long sides into the middle. Wrap your roll back up in the parchment and pop it in the freezer for a while to firm up, just to make it easier to cut. Once it’s firm, cut the roll into 1cm rounds and lay them out on a greased baking sheet. At this stage you might want to add a topping – we sprinkled our mincemeat puff pastry swirls with sugar and ground mixed spice.
Pop in the oven at 200 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until they look nice and golden brown.
That’s it! So easy isn’t it?
