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.
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.
