Posts have been very light lately, which is a result of an influx of new events and clients and preparing for the launch of the company website. It is quite an exciting time right now!
One of the events I am working on is a surprise 60th birthday party. Though the event is being catered, I am preparing a few items. One of which will be apricot puff pastry twists that I found via Robin Miller on the Food Network. This is such an easy and versatile recipe that will impress all your guests!
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed according to package directions
1/4 cup apricot preserves
2 cups vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Roll out puff pastry into a rectangle, about 12 by 15 inches.
Spread preserves over the dough, to within 1/2-inch of the edges.
Fold dough in half lengthwise.
Gently roll again to seal edges.
Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut dough crosswise into 1/2-inch thick strips.
Take each strip by the ends and tie into a knot.
Arrange knots on a large baking sheet and press down the ends.
Bake 6 to 10 minutes, until puffed up and golden brown.
Scoop frozen yogurt or ice cream into dessert bowls and lay twists over top.
