Easter treat

It's been a long time since I posted, but perhaps with mobile devices now it will be easier.  I do have a couple of posts from another blog that I'll move across at some stage.

Onto my reason for posting today.

If you're after something nice for your children (or you) to make for an Easter treat - perhaps to take to a friends house for sharing - we made these yesterday after the kids helped make some at church for the Good Friday service.  In the afternoon I needed something to occupy them for a short time and these worked beautifully.

They are crosses made of puff pastry. I pulled a couple of sheets of puff from the freezer, defrosted them and cut them into strips, then cut the strips at about one third (so there was a long piece for the vertical and a shorter one to cross horizontally). Then I set out trays with baking paper, a small cup with milk (soy for us) and a pastry brush, and a little dish with sugar with a little cinnamon mixed in.  The kids made the crosses with the pastry on the trays, brushed them with milk and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar.

They took about 10 minutes at 200 deg C in a fan forced oven (set it to 20 deg C more if not fan forced or see the instructions on your pastry packet).

If you are taking them somewhere to eat cold, cool them on a cooling rack otherwise just eat them warm.
