Sugar Wands

There is something deceptively simple about these Sugar Wands; they take just 15 minutes to make from basic ingredients.  However, when served alongside ice cream or to along side a crumble, they come alive, soaking up flavours and adding sweetness.

Ingredients

375g Ready-Rolled Puff Pastry
1 Egg York
1 Teaspoon of Milk
Caster Sugar

Method

  1. Fire up your oven to 220C (425F).
  2. Gently unfurl the pre-rolled Puff Pasty and set out on a flat surface.
  3. Whist the Egg Yolk and milk together (the milk helps to loosen the egg yolk for spreading next).
  4. Brush the Egg Yolk over the Puff Pastry covering it entirely; be careful to go right up to the edges.
  5. Sprinkle liberally with Caster Sugar all over the yolked surface.
  6. Slice the Puff Pastry into wands (6-8inches or 15-20cm) in length.
  7. Place the wands on a baking tray.
  8. Bake in the hot oven for 8-10 Minutes until they are crispy and golden brown.
