Perfection in a Pastry Parcel

P1010263

I haven’t done a foodie post in quite awhile so where better to start than these insanely good pastry parcels!  I saw the recipe on Pinterest awhile back and after altering it a bit, I have decided to be a good little blogger and share them with you (not the ones I made, there aren’t any left of those) in the hope that you get as much enjoyment out of them as I did!

 

You will need –

a tin of croissant rolls

brie

granny smith apples

pecans

honey

P1010255

Crack open the tin of croissant dough and separate the triangles.

P1010256

Chop slices of brie into 1 inch by 1 inch (give or take) and pop these in the centre of your croissant.

P1010257

Peel a granny smith apple (you can use a different type of apple if you want but I like it with granny smith’s as they are sharp and contrast with the brie and dough really well) and cut it into the same size slices as the brie.

P1010258

Put a couple of pecans on top.

P1010259

Drizzle a bit of honey over the top, if you don’t have drizzley honey, then pop the jar in the microwave for about 30 seconds.

Make sure you wrap up the pastry as tight as you can without any holes because you don’t want the honey or brie to make a run for it!

P1010264

If you want that lovely glossy finish when they come out of the oven, paint some milk over the top of each one.

P1010265

Put them in the oven at 180 degrees for about 10-15 minutes but keep an eye on them because pastry can suddenly turn on you when you least expect it!

You’re never too old for chocolate milk with breakfast!

I don’t think you guys understand how difficult it was to take a bite of this and then remember to pick up the camera and take a picture before I demolished it!  I hope you all enjoyed this post and give it a go for yourselves!

  1. They look so gooood. It looks so easy to make, but I know I’ll find a way of making this difficult. Lol. But great post Alex. Let me just grab something to eat then I’ll get back on perusing your blog :))

  2. I’m curious to find out what blog platform you have
    been utilizing? I’m having some minor security issues
    with my latest site and I’d like to find something more
    safe. Do you have any solutions?
