Puff Pastry Treats


This “recipe” makes excellent use of any extra puff pastry you may have left over from making strudel or other sweet treats—and is a perfect solution for a last-minute snack or dessert. Simply brush the pastry sheet with beaten egg yolk, sprinkle generously with sugar, cut into strips, score the tops, and bake until puffed up and golden, rotating the baking sheet as needed to color evenly. Serve warm, preferably with a mug of hot chocolate topped with whipped cream.
