What makes these easy twists delicious is filling made of GROUND TOASTED HAZELNUTS, MARZIPAN, BROWN SUGAR and EGG - scented with refreshing citrus zest and a dash of Amaretto.
The flavour of toasted hazelnuts pairs great with almondy notes of marzipan and Amaretto liqueur. You can blitz the hazelnuts in a mini food-processor or grind them in nut grinder - it's up to you. Important thing is to grind them so finely.
We used rolled puff pastry but feel free to use frozen one if you like. The dimensions of our puff pastry was 26x40cm. Roll out the pastry then cut into two. Brush one piece and spread the filling evenly using a spoon. Top with another piece of pastry, then using a sharp knife cut into 1-1.5cm long strips. Half each strip and twist to expose the filling and place on the tray. Brush with beaten egg and bake for about 10 minutes.
These hazelnut twists only take 10 minutes to bake. Preheat the oven temperature to 200 C and bake until they are puffed and brown. Don't open the oven during the baking time. Take them from the oven dust with some icing sugar and enjoy immediately. They are best while still warm and crispy.
