Mixed puff pastry cookies

Puff pastry Christmas cookies in 5 different recipes to make this Christmas so different from usual a little’ Special. Orange and cinnamon fans, the classic caramelized sheets (like the Dorè sheets I loved as a child). And again raviolini stuffed with Nutella, girelle with jam and almonds and the classic puff pastry cannons stuffed with sweet ricotta. A gluttonous centrepiece, an elegant fine meal to serve with a passito wine, a joker to enjoy for a snack but also a nice gift made with your own hands. To give Christmas love instead of simple objects. As you can see in the VIDEO RECIPE STEP BY STEP, these are very simple cookies to make, really in real time. If you want some alternative, take a look at my article on 18 HOMEMADE COOKIES, all to enjoy.

As I told you in the post on QUICK APPETIZERS FOR THE APERITIF, ready puff pastry is a great help in the kitchen. Honestly the taste is completely different from the homemade puff pastry, prepared with a quality butter, but the time-saving is such that I always keep a roll in the refrigerator.

To prepare this nice box of mixed Christmas puff pastry cookies takes 30 real minutes and you can indulge in fillings and tastes: you can use cottage cheese, custard, Nutella, chocolate cream, Jam. Or flavor the prussians of puff pastry even with vanilla, lemon zest, cinnamon, orange or tangerine zest.

PROCEEDINGS

The preparation of mixed puff pastry cookies for Christmas is very simple, as you see in VIDEO RECIPE step by step. Prepare an emulsion by mixing the yolk with the whole milk, you'll need to brush the cookies. Remember that again, as in the savory appetizers for the aperitif, you have to refrigerate for 30 minutes each type of cookie before baking. In this way the puff pastry will keep the shape better.

FOR DORE TYPE COOKIES: roll out the roll of puff pastry and brush it with cold water on both sides. Then sprinkle it in abundance with the caster sugar on both sides and roll it tightly making sure that the two parts of the roll meet in the center, as you see in VIDEO RECIPE. Refrigerate the sweetened roll and cut into slices an inch thick. Dust the biscuits again with a little’ of sugar, put them in a baking tray covered with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees static and bake the Dorè-type cookies for 15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden and caramelized on the surface. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

FOR PUFF PASTRY FANS: roll out the roll of puff pastry and brush it with cold water on both sides. Then sprinkle it in abundance with the caster sugar on both sides. On the inner side, add the cinnamon powder and grated orange zest. Roll the roll tightly over itself and refrigerate for 30 minutes. After the interval of rest, engrave the roll in the center in the direction of length but not completely: you have to get about half-height, as you see in VIDEO RECIPE. At this point, cut the roll into slices about an inch thick, place them on the baking tray and always bake in a static oven at 200 degrees for 15 minutes or until the biscuits are well golden and caramelized.

For RAVIOLI STUFFED WITH NUTELLA, roll out a roll of puff pastry and divide it in half. Spread the Nutella on a half and cover with the second half of the puff pastry. Trim the edges with a wheel and divide the rectangle into many squares. as you see in VIDEO RECIPE. Brush with the egg yolk and milk emulsion and refrigerate. Bake at 200 degrees in a static oven for 15 minutes or until the Nutella ravioli are swollen and golden. Once cold, you won't have any difficulty in detaching them from each other. You can replace Nutella with chocolate cream or very dense pastry cream, or even jam.

For JAM GIRELLE, spread the jam on the puff pastry roll and cut it into strips an inch and a half-thick. Roll the strips on themselves as you can see in the VIDEO RECIPE. Once the nest swivels are rolled up, place them on the baking tray and brush with the egg and milk emulsion. Sprinkle with lamella almonds. Refrigerate and bake at 200 degrees in a static oven for 15 minutes or until the swivels are swollen and golden.

Finally, for CANNONS STUFFED WITH RICOTTA you need cannolo rods or stainless steel cornucopia rods. Cut the puff pastry roll into inch-thick strips. As you can see in the VIDEO RECIPE, you simply have to roll up the puff pastry strips around the steel rods, overlapping them slightly so that in cooking no holes are created. Refrigerate, then brush with the egg and milk emulsion, sprinkle with caster sugar and always cook at 200 degrees static until the puff cannons are swollen and golden. Churning out, allow to cool and gently detach from the rods. For the cream cheese, work the cottage cheese with icing sugar until you get a cream. Put the ricotta cream in a pastry bag and fill the ricotta cannons.

You can store christmas puff pastry cookies in a tin or hermetic container and in a cool, dry place (not in the refrigerator). Bon appétit!
