Food can bring up all sort of emotions and memories and can be so good to send you straight to heaven.
I experienced this today. These finger biscuits have some similarities to the Italian sfogliatine although they are different as they don't have the same glaze on top.
Very simple: just puff pastry, with a thin layer of jam, egg white and powdered sugar which helps to create just a thin glaze on top of the pastry.
I have sprinkled them with powdered sugar mainly for decoration. One sheet of puff pastry will make enough biscuits for 4 people, great to go with afternoon tea or coffee.
This is what I made for my friends on a cool afternoon of May. The temperature seems to have dropped again today so we needed some nice comforting delicious food again.
My dear blogging friend Dottie of Family Plus Food Equals Love has made these biscuits. Thanks Dottie for sharing your photo, I am really pleased you enjoyed them 🙂
- Prep Time : 20 minutes
- Cook Time : 17 minutes
With a sharp knife cut the puff pastry sheet into strips about 8 cm/3 inch x 2 cm/0.8 inch long.
With the knife make some diagonal incisions on each strip. Line them on a baking tray and cook them for 15 minutes at 180C or 350F or until golden.
Put the jam in a saucepan and softed it a little over a source of heat then brush the top of the cooked biscuits with it.
Mix well the egg white with the sugar and the lemon juice and brush the top of the biscuits with it. Put them back in the switched off oven still warm for 5 to 8 minutes with the door left adjar.
Serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar if you wish.
