Puff pastry finger biscuits

Puff pastry finger biscuits

By 30/05/2016

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ofย  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.

    Dear Alida,
    These look awesome and what a light biscuit. Sweet and delicious. I am having some relatives coming over tomorrow from Florida to visit my mom. I am making a Limoncello Lemon Cake and I have puff pastry in the freezer. So I think I will make this as well. So easy and so yummy with a cup of tea or coffee. I know I can’t go wrong with your fabulous recipes. Thanks you for sharing..I will share a photo with you when I have made them. Have a wonderful day/night.
    Hugs Dottie ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aren’t these simply lovely Alida:) I’m pretty sure I have puff pastry in the freezer. If not, I will be buying some. Even I can make these. You are so talented:) I’m sure mine won’t look as pretty but I’d love to give it a try. Too bad I haven’t made any strawberry jam yet this year. I guess I’ll just have to make them twice!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Alida…
