I somehow thought I would have more time, but I don't. If you, like me, need a quick solution to the ever hungry masses, try re-introducing dessert to the menu, both a filler and a bribe for the very average meal. My difficulty, or one of them, is how to add this whilst we have two diabetics in residence. There are lots of diabetic and other healthy alternatives but if I make two versions of the same thing I can guarantee that no-one will take the diabetic option. [I know, I've already tried that] As I'm still keen to encourage my "little chef" with something mouth watering, we've compromised. Bite sized desserts. These little parcels taste a bit like pain au chocolat, but don't take my word for it, give it a go yourself.
You will need:-
1 packet of puff pastry thawed to room temperature
Parchment paper on a cookie tray
Unfold the pastry and cut into nine even squares
Put a dollop [teaspoonfulish] in the centre of each one
dampen the edge of the square - brush with water
pull up the corners to form parcels and squeeze tight
bake in a pre-heated over at 425 degrees for about 12 minutes
Leave to cool for at least 5 minutes on the parchment paper [if you transfer them they will glue themselves to whatever you put them on / in
It you place them closer together you could probably cook them in a toaster oven outside in the garden to avoid heating up your house.
