Hazelnut, Walnut & Cranberry Swirls.

Wednesday 6th April 2011

Zephyrus and I made these at the weekend. You build them rather than make them and for this reason I thought they might hold his interest.

They did.

Place the sheet of puff pastry on a flat surface. Sprinkle the whole sheet with brown sugar then do the same with the dried cranberries. Crush the walnuts and hazelnuts, not to dust but smaller than whole. Then sprinkle onto the sheet of puff pastry.

 Now it’s time to roll.

Start rolling the pastry, length ways, until you have a long sausage shape. Then cut it into 1 inch slices.

Place the swirls on a baking tray and bake at about 200 degrees c until the swirls rise and go brown. About 15 minutes.

We wanted to put a bit of melted chocolate on the top, to finish them off but the chocolate turned and went lumpy. So we put it on anyway.

He ate one straight away and put one aside for grandma too.

About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    What a thoughtful boy, setting one aside for grandma straight away. What a sweetie. 🙂

    (We call these items “pinwheels”.)

    These were delicious. The nuts made them wonderful. I could eat tonnes of these. When will you make them again?!
