If you like puff pastries, you will adore these little triangles with delicious pecan nut filling. The aroma of toasted pecan nuts is amazingly delicious especially enriched with grated orange zest and ground cloves. Toasting pecan nuts gives them crunchiness and enchances their nutty flavour.
Making these little puff pastries is so easy and quick if you have ready made pastry.
TOASTING PECANS: Preparing these puff pastries start with making the filling for the pastries. First you need to toast pecan nuts in the oven until they become fragrant and lightly brown. Once cooled, finely ground half of the amount, while other half finely chop.
MAKING FILLING: Place pecan nuts in a bowl and combine with melted butter, then add agave syrup as we don't use any sugar in this recipe. For refreshing aroma add grated orange zest and ground clove. Combine everything and set aside.
BAKING PASTRIES: Puff pastry should be cutted into 12 squares and transferred to the baking tray, leaving some space between each square as they will puff while baking.
Place a tablespoon of filling at one end of square, brush the edges of the square with beaten egg and fold over the opposite corner. Be sure to press the edges of pastries firmly with you fingers or with the tines of a fork so they don't open while baking.
Bake in the oven until the pastries are puffed and golden brown. Dust with some icing sugar and serve immediately as these little puffs are the best while still warm.
