Strawberry Swirls

Today we made Strawberry Swirls from a recipe I got from Creative Steps magazine.  Perfect for afternoon tea, these sweet treats are so easy to make using just 2 ingredients!

To make them you will need:

  • Sheets of ready rolled puff pastry
  • Strawberry jam
  • Baking tray and parchment
  1. Take the pastry out of the fridge 10 minutes before you start.  Make sure all little hands are clean, and then on a surface dusted with icing sugar, lay out the pastry rectangle.
  2. Spread strawberry jam all over the pastry and then roll up into a long sausage.  Wrap the pastry roll in plastic food wrap and put in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. When chilled, unwrap the rolls and cut into 1cm slices.  Place on a baking tray lined with parchment and bake for approx. 20 minutes at 200°C, 400°F, gas mark 6.  Dust with icing sugar when cool.
Enjoy!
