Everyone deserted me this weekend, scout camps, city to surf and Taronga Zoo all to enticing. Afternoon tea came around too quickly and I thought I’d make a quick snack for those tried travellers on their return.
Basically you make a sweet flavoured butter and smear it onto some puff pastry and cook – cream 50g soft butter with 2 tablespoons of hazelnut meal and 2 tablespoons of flaked almond. Add 1 tablespoon of caster sugar and a splash of brandy or vanilla essence and some cinnamon. You can add raisins if you like. Spread onto a sheet of all butter puff pastry, roll up, then cut into slices, place on a baking tray, brush with egg and sprinkle with brown sugar and cook 200C for 20mins.
