Butterfly Puff (瑚蝶酥)

Are you looking for a simple, fast and easy baking ideas for snacks? Not good at baking but needed to make some baking for your kids' party? No worry, below is a great idea contributed by my Hong Kong friend Vera whom is very good at making snacks and desserts.

Butterfly Puff (瑚蝶酥)

Following up on my previous recipe on Egg Tarts. For my first batch of egg tarts making, the excess trimmed puff pastry, I turned them into above butterfly puff as shown by Vera during one of our cooking and lunch sharing session.

However, I mistakenly placed the spiral side outward instead of inward as made by Vera. But my version seemed more like butterfly then Vera right? :-P

Ok, enough of talking, here is the recipe :

  • Flaky puff pastry
  • Coffee sugar/Brown Sugar - to your taste
  • Ground Cinnamon (optional)
  • Butter
  • Egg (lightly beaten for glazing)

1) Spread butter on the puff sheet.
2) Sprinkle brown or raw sugar and Cinnamon on the puff sheet.
3) Roll both left and right side of the sheet to meet at center of the sheet.
4) Cut the rolled pastry into small strips.
5) Place 2 strips of pastry into butterfly form.You can either face the both spiral sides face to face or face out.

6) Glaze the strips with eggs for golden effect.
7) Baked @ 180 degree Celsius for 15 min or till golden brown.
