How to make blueberry and lemon puff pastry twists

The base of this recipe is puff pastry dough which is always a good thing to have in the kitchen. We love frozen block of dough but feel free to use the fresh one from your local food store. Thaw the dough 1-2 hours before baking otherwise is will be too soft to handle. Let's see how make these lemony twists:

  1. ROLL OUT THE PUFF PASTRY DOUGH: This is the best done on lightly floured work surface or silicon mat. You will need a proper rolling pin and flutted cutter to cut out the strips. Twist each strip while placing on the sheet and brush with some egg. Sprinkle half of the surface with blueberries and grated lemon zest then fold over the other half of the dough.

  2. CUTTING THE STRIPS AND TWISTING: Cut strips 2cm wide then twist each strip while placing on the sheet and brush with some egg wash.

  3. BAKING THE TWISTS: Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are puffed and golden. Leave to cool until you prepare the icing.

  4. DRIZZLING WITH LEMON ICING: For the lemon icing stir icing sugar, butter and lemon juice. 

These easy puff pastry snacks are the best eaten immediately.
